Without almost any experience in traveling and with very limited funds we decided to go on a 6+ month trip. This was the time, when we learned to travel on very low budget.
In 11 months we spent on average less than 10 EUR/day per person.
Coming back to Latvia we had no idea – what to do next? All we knew was, that we want to travel more. But at the same time we had almost no money left. Half of the year we volunteered, other half – had paid job in the Netherlands.
If the very first year was year of very low budget traveling, then during the third year we were spending more. But it was all well worth spent money.
This year our plan is to try working online (and remotely), while traveling. To see, if it’s something for us. Location independent lifestyle sounds tempting, right? Let’s see how it goes!
Initially we funded our traveling only with our savings. But then we found Workaway.info, a data base of volunteering opportunities all over the world, where you can exchange 4-5 hours of your work 5 days a week for accommodation and food. We tried it. We loved it. And we used it again and again.
Here you will find everything we know about volunteering!
Here you can read more about how our travel started. How the idea about traveling was turned into reality.
But here we are talking about getting ready for long-term travel. What you need to do and what you need to think about, step by step.
