Traveling on a Budget
Traveling can be costly and seem unfeasible to many, but it’s completely doable if you budget yourself and go about making your travel plans with the right mindset. You don’t need to be a trust fund baby or have a ton of free income to afford to travel, as long as you prioritize traveling you’ll be able to make it work on any budget.
For my eight weeks in Europe I spent about $100 per day. This includes the cost of the flights, train costs, accommodation, attractions, food, miscellaneous costs, souvenirs shopping and some splurges. I did not originally budget for miscellaneous costs such as luggage storage or buying a new lock when mine broke and so on. I stuck as close as I could to my original budget estimate, but ended up going over a bit because I had decided to splurge on certain attractions and spontaneously added another city to my itinerary.
