Today’s guest is former Frugal Traveler columnist for the New York Times and author of Rediscovering Travel: A Guide for the Globally Curious, Seth Kugel. Seth is also known in some circles as the “Latino food expert”, can claim that he has written for the New Yorker but can’t claim that his work has appeared in the New Yorker, and is one of the funniest guys out there (just read his about page!).
Yesterday, Robb and David talked about their strategies for saving up money for their various trips around the globe.
Today, we talk about how they’re saving money on their current, open-ended trip. We discuss their $50 dollar a day budget, how they manage their money while on the road, and how flexibility plays into it, both for better and for worse.
These guys make Heather and I look like we frivolously throw our money around (despite our loose budgeting strategies)! We’ve learned a lot from them over the past couple of weeks, and hopefully, you’ll learn something new as well!
We get it all the time. And it’s really not a big secret.
We spend a lot of our time in cheap destinations like Thailand.
“But come on, Thailand can’t really be that cheap”
Oh, but it is.
Today Heather and I lay it all out. How much we’re paying for accommodation, meals, drinks, transportation, and activities during our time in Thailand. You really can eat for a $1, and you really can stay in a nice place for $20 a night. We share all that and much, much more in today’s episode.
If you’re looking to travel, but it’s just “too expensive” have a listen and see how much a vacation in Thailand will really cost you!
Have you been to Thailand? Let us know how much YOU were spending on things like food & activities to give everyone some social proof that Thailand really is that cheap.
