Me, myself and I
My name is Dan. I left my home in the UK in 2005 and have been living and travelling abroad ever since. Over the long years, through many experiences good and bad I've learned that travelling is no where near as expensive as so many people believe! In fact, I can honestly say I often spend less money when I am travelling than when I am living somewhere long term! Through hitchhiking, camping, couchsurfing and saving money in many different ways, I managed to get my budget down to around €5-10 per day. That works out at around €250 per month, or about €3000 for a whole year's travelling! So I am making this site to teach others how I do this and talk about my experiences. I am not going to say my travels have been easy, you don't usually get much luxury when budget travelling, but I wouldn't trade the experiences I've had, and the friends I've made for anything in the world. When I travel I aim to learn about the culture, to experience it, to feel it. To live like a local, not like a tourist.
