If I know where you are from then I can help you. Lately, I travelled with my wife to singapore and we spend not much. Actually, my wife was surprised and she wants to bring all the children to Singapore this christmas. Yesterday, i was discussing this to my officemates, i was telling them if you can save 20 cent $ a day, in a year time you can see singapore, the only thing is that we dont know how and we are afraid to venture. If you were able to buy a cellphone i think you can afford to travel. just say so and i'll give you a hint. good day

Why not? The rich to travel is first class, then the civilian population such as ours to sit in economy class is also OK; rich people lived in a five-star hotel, then we live in comfortable and landscape are the same, isn't it? Don't worry, now there're many online discount airline tickets, hotels and other benefits information as well as other people's travels and so on, very convenient. If you want to be more favorable, I suggest you in advance for six months or even a year to begin preparing. Network of traps, but be careful, if you want online booking, then we must patronize large, reputable site.

I didn't have very much money when I was a teenager. I only had money from my paper round and yet I managed to save enough to go to Greece with my mum when I was 14 years old. That trip cost me £120. I got a Saturday job in a shop when I was 16 and saved up more money. I went to the Netherlands with my friend when I was 17 years old. I really wanted to travel around Europe by train but I wondered how I would possibly be able to afford to do that. So I got a job as a children's nanny in Finland where I got very high wages. I flew to Helsinki but plane and then came home on an Inter Rail Pass. I stayed in youth hostels and traveled on trains. I admit I had lots more money by the time I was 20 years old and I got to travel around the world. To do that I let out my home that I bought when I was 19 years old. I also got a working holiday visa for Australia. Years later I was poor after my trip to New Zealand. So therefore I got a cheap flight to Italy, then took a bus to Croatia and I camped in my tent. So my suggestions are: 1. Youth hosteling or camping in a tent are cheap accommodation options 2. Working overseas can give an opportunity for traveling during or afterwards 3. Cheaper countries can be found by checking the Lonely Planet Destinations. For example Guatemala, India and Indonesia are cheap places to go to. Good luck.

I think it is possible to travel without spending a lot of money for instanse if you choose to stay at a hostel instead of a hotel. If you sleep in a dorm or choose a room without a private bathroom you can save some money. Hostels, food etc in Eastern Europe are generally cheaper than Western Europe, and I know that you can get a very cheap room in some of the hostels in Eastern Europe especially If you don't mind sharing a room with other people. You can also save some money if you travel by bus instead of flying. It is not very comfortable to spend 30 hours or more on a bus, but it is possible to save some money that way, and I have done that in the past when I didn't have much money. You can also save some money if you book your tickets online, and if you make reservations online, you can compare the different prices.

Hello cutepink_13, Sad to say, it is pretty tough to get by with little money, however it is not impossible. You just have to plan ahead and the find the best deal online and possibly wait for the off season before you travel.
