I recently traveled to Texas and obviously flew, you know like being in a plane. I absolutely love traveling and in my seasoned 17 years of flying experience I've learned a few tricks that make flying much more enjoyable.
Workaway changed all the expectations I had for travel. I always assumed it to be a luxury for the wealthy and the free, but that never stopped me from planning, saving, and hoping that I would be able to pull off a big trip after Sixth form. I ended up experiencing the most amazing year of my life at 18, without ever actually having a real job.
I do not stop at booking a flight at the first, second or even third price I see online. There are many simple things that go into finding incredible deals on flights and I’d love to share them 🙂

So you want to travel, but have little money? Well you still can. Traveling is only expensive to a high maintenance person. So if you aren’t high maintenance and can save a few hundred dollars, then you are two steps closer to traveling the world. With that being said, here are five tips to traveling on a budget:
“Traveling is SO expensive” is such a common misconception. So many of us use the excuse of “not having enough money” to justify not traveling. But I’m here to tell you just how cheap and easy international travel really can be. And in this article, we’re going to focus on traveling Europe on a tight budget.
If by some fluke you read my previous blog, you know that back in March I quit my job and went traveling. I thought I'd do a quick post to debrief myself on the whole experience, but I've realized as I'm writing I can't cover all four countries and my takeaways in one post, so I'm going to break it down, so it at least makes sense to me.
