If you haven’t already been hit by the travel bug, this thorough guide to visiting well-traveled or remote locations would undoubtedly do the trick. According to author Matt Kepnes, the tips on How to Travel the World on $50 a Day: Revisions: Traveling Cheaper, Longer, and Smarter costs $50 a day on average: Travel in France and Germany would be more costly, but this is offset by travel in Central America and South Asia, which will cost as little as $25 per day. So here is my quick, short, and crisp book review for you.
As I was thinking of going backpacking in the summer, I had a lot of books to pick from: “The Rough Guide,” “The Savvy Backpacker,” and “The Lonely Planet Guide.” Yeah, how lovely! But how do you decide?
My response was to look to the bloggers, to the people who had achieved it. Take a look at what passengers on a tight schedule have to offer. Fortunately for me, one book kept popping up: “Travel the Globe on $50 a Day.”
Matt Kepnes (“Nomadic Matt”) has made a significant impact on the field of low-cost travel. His blog was full of insightful tips that even I, a very experienced traveler, had never heard before.
Most people’s perceptions of travel are shaped by ads, promotions, and travel magazines that emphasize lavish tours and luxury hotels and use subtle marketing jargon that suggests “a nice holiday is an expensive vacation.” Since being bombarded by these advertisements for decades, our collective awareness has come to associate travel with comfort.
Matt saved me money right away in the first segment. While I was aware of Skyscanner and Airbnb, I was unaware of Blabla car or workaway.org. Even though it wasn’t my first time around the block, I was taken aback at how much money I had been wasting due to low exchange rates and international banking fees (!!).
We were also able to save 3% on all orders and use points to compensate for our flights home at the end of the trip thanks to Matt. Matt inspired me by showing me that travel is much more affordable than I had expected, and he gave me the courage and savvy to look at other more exotic locations.
The book included excellent information on international credit cards, travel premiums, and vaccines. The region-specific advice is often helpful.
Before picking up this novel, I had almost given up on international travel. Matt Kepnes gave me optimism that one day, considering my pitiful paycheck, I, too, would be able to walk down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.
I can suggest this book to young travelers who are just starting, as well as others who are planning long and sluggish journeys. If you really are a book lover, then I would also recommend you to Read THE ALCHEMIST BY PAULO COELHO. For now, you can download your free ebook from here and follow us on Instagram. I wish you good luck and good health. Keep exploring, Keep traveling.
