I found this youtube-video randomly today, and thought the advice given was brilliant. Check it out. The description reads:
Graham Hughes, the world’s most travelled filmmaker, offers his expert advice on how to travel the world on a shoestring budget.
He had a well phrased quote in the description which I also wanted to include:
Travel isn’t a question of being loaded, it’s a question of priorities. Obviously if you want comfort and security, stay at home, work hard and maybe go on a cruise when you’re 67 years old. If you’re lucky enough to live that long. But if you want to see the world, rush headlong into the thrill and vigour of the unknown, wake up every day in a new place with new challenges and new friends, then the world is your dancefloor — all you have to do is make the decision to GET OUT THERE and strut your funky stuff.
His blog is called TheOdysseyExpedition.com.
