While many of us want to travel the world but for many, it is not always feasible. A lot of things can hinder us from going on that road trip we have always longed for. Work, kids, finances and the like can simply stop you.
Most of us want to go on a cheap vacation but for a short time. Good news though is that there are a lot of ways to see the world without breaking the bank. Here are some of our tips:
Be a local tourist
How often do you tour your own city? Probably never. A lot of people from their own locals have never truly seen their own local attractions like the museum which is just a block away, the Statue of Liberty for New Yorkers, and so on. We are all guilty of this but we can do something about it. So start touring your own place first if you can.
There is something very special about being a stranger in your own country and finally knowing that there is so much to see. We mostly think that because we are born in a place we know it but what we don’t realise is that every country has regional differences that make it different from our own region unless we travel and experience it, we’ll never fully understand our own homeland.
Go to national parks
Camping fees in national parks as $10 to $60 in Australia and in many places such as in Japan and Europe (mostly in Scandinavia), you can camp on public lands for free. When you go camping stocked with your own accommodation and food, you will not have to worry about spending a lot.
