Learning how to travel the world on a budget is incredibly easy to do once you get the hang of it.
You can experience different cultures and countries all around the world without having to spend thousands of dollars on a 7-day trip. I know this firsthand because I usually spend around $50 a day when I’m abroad, which included accommodations, food, excursions, and anything else I needed.
In the past 2 years, I’ve been an au pair, volunteer for a special needs orphanage, solo traveler, and have found many ways to travel without having to stay in hostels on a regular basis or eat food from the grocery store at every meal. Let’s be real, food is a big deal when traveling to another country and I want to experience it at restaurants or cooking classes.

At 23, I’ve visited 5 continents and countries around the world that have transformed who I am as a person. Traveling solo as a person with major anxiety was no small feat, and the experiences abroad taught me how to overcome the fear that I often carry around with me, which is why I strongly urge traveling.
Seeing the world is not just about visiting famous landmarks and trying out food. It’s actually so much more than that, despite what people think.
Traveling abroad taught me things that I never learned in school or in my hometown. I became more open-minded to other cultures, food, ways of life, and religions.
I began to value experiences over things, which lead me to start saving money to spend on trips and adventures rather than clothes and shoes. I became more free spirited and go with the flow kind of girl, which is not the type of person I ever thought I’d be.
Gap years are encouraged because of what traveling can do for someone. You strengthen your confidence, determination, and skills abroad when you’re traveling, especially when you’re traveling solo.
Benefits of taking a gap year:
- Learn how to overcome obstacles
- Network with people from around the world
- Learn a new language (major resume booster)
- Schools report that taking a gap year leads to higher GPAs
- You become more adaptable to new environments
- Time to figure out what you want to do with your life
