I’m really cheap. Not like, eat-toast-for-three-meals-a-day-in-the-hostel-while-I’m-traveling-type cheap – but at least feast-on-3-dollar-dinners-every-day-type cheap.
I pride myself at being really damn good at fossicking out the best deals, finding the best (cheapest) ways of getting from A to B, eating extremely good food on a stringent budget of about $5 a meal, and generally just getting by on next to nothing at all. Much to my friends’ disgust.
My problem is, I tend to quit jobs on a whim and decide I’m off traveling for much longer periods of time than my bank balance at the time would allow.
So I turn to couchsurfing, hitchhiking, Zomato, TripAdvisor, and the rest, to help me through months on the road at a time.
I’ve been known to splash out too, the Inca Trail sure wasn’t cheap, but I can also tell you how to get the best deals.
It’s not all about money, though – here’s where I’ll share the best things to do in any given place, and (try to remember) how to do them.
Hopefully my memory serves me (us) well.
