Does full-time travel sound like a pipe dream? Too expensive, perhaps?
What if I told you that full-time travel can be cheaper than the cost of living in one place? I’ve been on the road for the last five years (full-time), and I’ve tracked my expenses for the last two years. And without really trying – my annual expenses – ALL IN – have been within $400 both years…..each year totalling around $17,000.
Now, $17k isn’t nothing, especially if you’re not a trust fund kid or otherwise independently wealthy. But if you have a decent location independent career (as a travel writer, perhaps, as Matador U graduates are so well positioned to be), $17,000 is a small income, but one that could actually support you in your travel endeavours.
Here are my secrets to traveling the world full-time for $17,000/year, chock-full of resources to get free accommodation, fly on the cheap (and in business class no less), and experience the world instead of merely passing through it.
