How You Can Afford To Travel By Traveling Tanya

The number one barrier to traveling that I hear all the time is…”I can’t afford to travel.”

It is true that traveling can be expensive. If you are living paycheck to paycheck or getting by on a fixed income, then travel may seem like a luxury you just can’t afford.

But I believe the old adage, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. And that definitely holds true for travel!

There are so many benefits to exploring new places and getting away from your daily routine. And if you value and prioritize travel in your life, then you can and will find a way to afford it.

New York City On a Budget

New York On A Budget

New York City On A Budget by Buff Shuff

I’m a Journalism student and my boyfriend, Jake, is an apprentice mechanic – safe to say we ain’t rolling in cash. We did, however, just go to New York – as I’m sure you’ve all seen all over my social media.

When the opportunity to go to New York came up, there was no way I was going to say no. I’ve been planning this trip since February 2018, the minute I got back from Florence.

Peoples’ initial thoughts on New York is bright lights, big city, big ol’ price tag with a gigantic dollar sign. On the face of it, it is, but you can totally still enjoy New York when you’re a skint young couple desperate to see the Big Apple.

Myrtle Beach on a Budget by Meal and Mile Markers

The ultimate East Coast beach.

Everyone seems to have been there at least once in their lives, if not once a year. Now I have finally joined that list.

As an affordable, family-friendly beach within driving distance of the majority of the eastern half of the country, Myrtle Beach has an appeal that attracts thousands of tourists all summer long.

Naturally, I got to work trying to figure out what we could do with our time there. My goal was to find activities that were not overpriced or too far away. This was a challenge. Everything that didn’t scream “tourist” or “tourist prices” seemed to be at least half an hour from the main strip. So what fun touristy things could we do without paying tourist prices? Read all about my Budget Friendly Trip to Myrtle Beach.
