Matt Kepnes has been teaching his readers to travel on a budget for years, and we can’t get enough of his tips. How to Travel the World on $50 a Day is a revised version (updated in 2015) that includes even more ways to travel cheaper, longer, and smarter. Matt shares practical money-saving tips and even introduces readers to the world of travel hacking. What’s travel hacking? You know, things like earning thousands of free frequent flyer points and how to get cheap flights.
Matthew runs the award winning budget travel site, Nomadic Matt. He never grew up in a family of travel lovers and it wasn’t until a trip to Costa Rica in 2004 that he feel in love with the freedom and possibility travel had to offer. After a trip to Thailand in 2005, Matt decided to quit his job, finish his MBA and head off into the world. His original trip was supposed to last a year.
Eighteen months later, he came home, realized cubicle life wasn’t for him, and set off to travel the world. Along the way, he started teaching others how to travel on a budget in hopes of showing that the prevailing wisdom is wrong – you can afford to travel wherever you want! His writings and advice have been featured in The New York Times, CNN, The Guardian UK, Lifehacker, Budget Travel, BBC, Time, Yahoo! Finance and countless other publications. He is also a regular speaker at travel trade and consumer shows.
I’ve read this book (my eBook) multiple times and keep learning new things. I’ve also signed up for Nomadic Matt’s newsletter to supplement. Powerful MONEY SAVING tips. A must-read book for 2017!
