Travel the World for Free

I know it sounds ridiculous--believe me, that's how I viewed it at first too, but it's really all just perception. We have this mindset that we need to travel luxuriously, to travel at a certain speed, but this is all just what we've been exposed to, what we've come to believe.

I came across this article and really want to share it with you to help erase this mindset that travelling has to be done a certain way or only when it fits within our budget. Although I don't recommend travelling without any money to your name, I do recommend checking out these tips to make travelling much more accessible and less stressful.

1. Embrace the Simple Joy of Travel
2. Keep Your Needs To A Minimum
3. Go Slow
4. Leave Your Possessions and Obsessions Behind
5. Trust People and you will Receive Free Food and Lodging
6. Learn a Useful Craft or Skill
7. Get Out of the City
8. Find A Job You Love That Entails Travel
9. Embrace Serendipity

  1. I think these are all great ideas, but 5 can be a bit risky, especially if you are female.
    I'd like to add an 10th: Travel with people you love, good company enriches every trip.
