Now out with a new book, the founder of Nomadic Matt’s Travel Site offers some new advice: how to take what can often be a leap of faith that enables us to travel the world cheaply while having a rich, rewarding travel experience.
A must-read for would-be travelers thinking of stepping outside of their comfort zone and into the realm of world travel, “How To Travel The World On $50 A Day” offers relevant tips and tricks learned the hard way, on the road.
Covering everything from getting finances in order to choosing the right backpack, Kepnes puts readers on a fast track to traveling cheaper, longer and smarter.
Starting with common sense tips, plainspoken Kepnes tells how would-be travelers of any age or background can set themselves up for success on the road. From which credit card to get, information on travel discount cards and the value of travel insurance, Nomadic Matt explains how to make a two-week or two-year trip happen for nearly anyone.
Specific tips for various regions of the world are complemented by a priceless appendix of suggested sources, alone worth the price of the book.Preparing for travel? “How To Travel The World On $50 A Day” gives tried and true sources for flights, backpack companies, discount cards and accommodations with details as specific as Matt’s packing list.
