These days, there are lots of ways to travel around the world, especially if you have access to a whole lot of money (my personal favorite is the Four Seasons Around the World option–hey, a girl can dream), but there are ways to see the world for a whole lot less, too.
Russell Eric Dobda knows all about that. He’s even written a book on it.
On one yearlong trip, he went around the globe, stopping in 24 countries, using 38 flights that averaged less than $100 each, while he slept for free and lived what he calls ‘an amazing adventure’. He didn’t know a soul, but found a way to live like a local everywhere he went.
And if you would like to travel—maybe not around the world, but for less than what most people think is possible—his book is packed with tips on how to do it.
He is one of those kind souls who finds a way to learn from every place he visits and believes in submerging yourself in the regional culture. Read this book with an open mind and understand you will be a far cry from The Four Seasons. This takes a certain kind of traveler to embrace and enjoy, but he ensures the experiences are rich, even if you aren’t.
In his opinion, saturating yourself in the area this way makes the trip much more memorable.
He also believes today’s technology can make travel cheaper and easier than ever before, linking you to deals to keep you traveling, all while helping you stay in communication with the folks back home.
He also encourages mindfulness while traveling, which he explains means living in the moment when we travel, and truly being present for the experience.
