Wandering on a Shoestring Budget

Aug 18, 2007
We all dream of being able to tour the world some day. It would be terrific to be able to see all the things that exist in our world. From elephants to palaces to forests, there is so much that we are yet to see. However, the question is, will we be able to see it all? Often enough, we are unable to do much of the things that we hope to because of our shoestring budgets. Even if we manage to get rooms in one of the top-end hotels, the end result will probably be that we will be scrimping on necessities like cornflakes.

Despite that, traveling on a shoestring budget can be a great ride. At least you are going to the places that you have been dreaming of for so very long. So many people just never get the opportunity. I agree that you may not be able to shop till you drop. However, you must agree with me that the experiences that you have and the memories that you get are far more valuable than some over-priced souvenirs any day. So even if you are traveling on a tight budget, try to enjoy the ride. At least you are getting a vacation.

Of course, even as you venture out into the world, make sure that you are ready for all possible problems. Carry enough cash or travelers' checks to last you for a few days more than the period of your journey. Carry basic medicines also so that you are not caught unprepared if you or your traveling companions start feeling sick.

I would also suggest that you take travel insurance before you catch that flight or take that train. You never know what might befall you during your travels. Travel insurance is of the essence if you are traveling for a relatively longer period of time. Catching a bug in a foreign land is quite a common occurrence. After all, you will anyway be in the process of adjusting to the change in climate.

Moreover, if you are going to do some adventure sports, you absolutely must find some travel insurance for yourself. At least if you do end up fracturing a bone, your travel insurance plan will see to all the expenses. You will not have to feel lost in an alien land wondering how on earth you will be able to pay the bills with the little money that you have carried with you.
