Choose your travel companion wisely
In 2012 I had an epiphany. I was working, living in a small prairie city, becoming complacent, needed a change. Therefore, at 63 years old I quit my job and moved to Victoria, British Columbia. I had always enjoyed travel but had not left North America for over twenty-five years. Life is short. So right after I moved I went on a three month backpacking trip to Eastern Europe, Turkey, Morocco etc with my son. I set my budget at fifty dollars per day even though that was a low ball figure according to the guidebooks.
But using this budget would enable me to cover a lot of ground and see places I would not otherwise be able to see.
My son is a seasoned budget traveller. I am the ultimate cheapskate. Therefore, we made a good team!
I believe we had a rich, cultural experience on the cheap. If you think you cannot afford to travel, think again. Where there is a will, there is a way.
