I am a traveller by nature. I crave the thrill of the unknown and am planning to take a 5 month sabbatical to wander through South America to discover things that I haven’t even thought of yet. Travelling, however, is not a cheap hobby. In fact, it is most likely my most expensive indulgence. Most people travel and don’t pay attention to the cheap options that are in front of them when they are abroad, and end up spending twice as much as they really need to .
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for experiencing and indulging when I travel (hello, macaroons, and gelato!), but I also think that having a food budget allows you to take in more activities. For example, I rather spend my mom on a football match than an overpriced lunch.
