Most of us don’t buy into the whole “I’ll-travel-when-I-have-enough-money-to-afford-it” idea. We generally understand that putting off travel is the equivalent of putting off life. If we don’t travel when we’re young, we’re hardly more likely to travel when we get older.
But that still puts us in a bit of a quandary, because travel can be expensive. Sure, there are ways to cut your budget so a trip is more affordable — there’s an entire internet out there dedicated to budget travel — but you still have to save in the first place, and that means settling down and working for a bit, unless you’re one of those lucky few who works for National Geographic and gets to work and travel all at once.
