No money to travel?
Having no money is the only way I have experienced life. Coming from a middle low class family in Puerto Rico, I was taught that traveling was only for the rich. Like every Latino mother, mine wanted me to be a doctor or a lawyer, but instead I became an artist. I have never had more than fifteen thousand dollars in my bank account, yet I’ve been to over 90 cities. Think it is impossible?
Nothing to lose
Having no money means I don’t own anything. Not owning anything means I’m not attached to any place. As a result, I have been able to keep some sort of nomadic life. I can pick up my stuff, walk away from any place, and start anew as many times as I want. I have an American passport which makes the entrance to many countries and visa approvals to work overseas fast and easy. Although I rather see my Puerto Rico free, that I’ll leave for another post. I’ve learned that having nothing means you have one thing…possibilities.
Having a family
While having kids and a family brings rewards that are foreign to me, they make it harder if you want to travel the world. But harder doesn’t mean impossible. Here you’ll find all my tips on how to save money on the road, how to get cheap flights and accommodations, the main mistakes first travelers make and how to take advantage of the numerous opportunities that currently exist out there to travel with barely no money at all!
