Before entering this post about how to save money to travel you have to understand one thing: we are not millionaires, nor people who reach out to receive money, all trips have been paid for their effort. (Now we have a virtual store that can help us travel and more if we have a budget)
To understand that we are a normal couple who have worked in tourism and hotels.
For the last year and a half that we created this blog we are two normal people in Colombia. Now we want to travel and travel the world.
We do not like the idea of labeling ourselves for something else, but sometimes we are a tourist and we observe everything, very rarely have we been backpackers (and we would love to do it).
We would love to work as a backpacker and travelers and to know the world. That is, we are low cost travelers who love being at our own pace.
We have traveled as locals, in airbnb, hostels and we have eaten in very cheap places and if it is with organic buffet much better.
With this blog and the YouTube channel we are looking for alternatives to monetize this blog. If you like the idea of seeing the alternatives with which we monetize the blog, click here:
How do two people travel the world?
Our accounts were not prepared to travel nor did we have funds to reach the end of the month.
We saved enough for two years and say save now and travel later.
But when you have the way to travel create an objective that is what you want to create: 15 days in Miami, 1 month in Europe or a sabbatical year in the world.
Keep it in your head all the time. For us it is key when you have to buy shoes or buy tickets for a festival, etc.
Eliminate debts They will think that you can not! It can take years about credit cards and debts. That is the question that you have a money and that you do not have to pay them.
After falling into the account you can achieve a fortnight for you and you can save.
Do an analysis of the finances and organize your expenses.
You do not need to be a financial professional but do not fool yourself and be realistic with what you spend.
Do not spend on what you do not have.
In a few days we will continue talking about how to save on your trips.
