Wondering how to travel the world with no money? Wondering how to change job or find a way to make your money go further?
A trip by a young Polish couple went viral this week on which they claim to have travelled an incredible 50 countries on just $8 per day. They purchased the van for just $600 and after stocking up with a tent, some food and other supplies, they hit the road ….for 6 years!
More than 150,000 km on 5 continents, the couple travelled and slept in their van every night to save on accommodation costs.
Unsurprisingly the negative brigade jumped in to question how this was possible on just $8 per day but the couple have a very plausible answer to this, in that they stayed in the one spot for more than a day at a time in order to find travel buddies to share the fuel cost to the next destination. Then they also began sending people postcards from their trip for a small fee which would cover maybe a litre of fuel. They cook all their own food rather than visit restaurants and
Eventually, they even found sponsors who paid to have large advertising on the sides of the van and this went toward funding the cost of getting the van on a ship and across the ocean.
The couple claim to have the largest travel blog in Poland and as a result of this enormous trip, they now work as travel bloggers full time and have also since published two books about the experience.
If that wasn’t enough they also got engaged on their travels:
Amazing, congratulations for winning at life!
