Author's Notes

So much of the budget travel advice today is about how to save a few bucks here and there. Suggestions either include indulgent vacation packages that aren't that affordable or sharing dorm rooms, sometimes in sketchy parts of town.

With more than seven years of living abroad and long-term travel, my husband and I have discovered a different way to do budget travel. An unconventional way. It opens doors to more meaningful, transformational experiences with locals while saving money and allowing you to travel longer and dig deeper in each place.
