The Real Cost Of Travel

One question I get asked often either from friends back home or people on the road is, “How can you afford to be traveling for a year?” They often think I must come from money. That is so not the case. I am far from a Trust Fund baby.  It really comes down to hard work and dedication to saving for this goal. I sold my soul for a while and put aside the desire for new clothes and fancy dinners. I chose travel over living the high life in San Francisco.


Adventurous Kate a fellow travel blogger put as simply as this, “You could buy that 70% off Dior bag…or spend three days learning to kitesurf in Mui Ne, Vietnam. You could have the jumbo sea scallops with saffron and a lemon drop martini…or an overnight trek in northern Laos. You could have a blowout weekend in Vegas…or a blowout month on Thailand’s Andaman Coast.”


I have been tracking my expenses and plan on posting my total expenses for each country I visit to give you all an idea of what this type of travel really costs.


I hope that by doing this I  can inspire others to save towards their dreams of travel!


Please dive deeper into this subject by checking out the country specific information!
