Many of the world’s leading travel bloggers seem to be living a lavish lifestyle that’s unachievable for most people. If their posts are making you feel travel envy, try seeking some new bloggers who are exploring the world on a budget—such as Amanda Monique Brown.
To be fair, Brown embarked on her journey from a more privileged place than most people trying to travel on a budget. She started exploring the world with her husband after they sold their condo and wrapped their projects at work, and they were fortunate enough to have the savings and flexibility to travel on their own terms.
Even if you’re not in the same position, Brown believes you can do something similar if you really put your mind to it.
“If there’s something you love to do, figure out a way to prioritize it! It doesn’t have to be as drastic as leaving everything you know behind, it can be setting aside 15 minutes a day for yourself and your needs,” she explains on her blog.
Her blog offers a lot of practical advice when it comes to traveling on a budget, from staying at hostels to flying coach and eating at local cheap restaurants. You don’t need to have a fortune in savings to embrace these tips and test them in theory during your next budget-friendly trip.
