Can you really travel the world on a tight budget?

Travelling the world on a tight budget is not easy, but it is possible, and it’s all about careful planning. You need to be an expert in researching areas and timing your travel so that you pick up the cheapest flights, stay in the most budget accommodation and eat without breaking the bank. Some countries are naturally more expensive than others, so you can’t exactly travel the world with a few hundred pounds in your pocket, but budget travel is all about finding options others may not have thought of, such as camping, staying in shared hostel rooms or doing all your sleeping on night buses and trains. In an ideal world, you should look to work and travel, so that you can keep the bank balance topped up, but it’s no secret that if you did decide to visit hundreds of countries across the glove, you will need a good amount of money behind you.
