Take aways:

  • Plans change quickly and often and its amazing to be able to just float along as you please
  • If you don’t continuously go on expensive tours, it is easy to stick to your budget
  • Split your time between more expensive and less expensive locations for best results
  • Traveling alone is inexpensive but traveling with other people is most affordable, as you get to split cheap prices a few ways. Take your traveling friends up on their offers when they invite you along!
  • Bug spray doesn’t work
