A brief guide on how to realize long term travels, both financially and mentally.
"How does she do it?" This is a question I regularly hear people asking when I tell them I`m already on the road for a year. Popular presumptions are that I worked as an escort, smuggle drugs, or just married a millionaire and now enjoy live receiving the alimentation every month. Neither of that is true, nor the fact that I won the lottery or earned tons of money with working as a model (on the contrary). So how do you do it? Well I`ve got some good news for you, if I can save enough money for a 1.5 year sabbatical with an average monthly income of $1,200, so can you! If I can manage with a backpack after suffering from a burn-out and depression, so can you!
After a burn-out it was time for a change. I quit my job, sold my stuff and bought a one-way ticket to the Dominican Republic. What was supposed to be a 4 month adventure turned into one year and counting......
