Explore, Discover, Experience places on a low budget.

Ocean and sand


“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.” 

Judith Thurman
Sand and ocean


“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” 

Marcel Proust
Clear water at the beach


“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 

Eleanor Roosevelt

How many times have you wanted to get away and you had to limit yourself because of your budget?

How often did you have a hard time planning a trip and stick to the budget you set?

If Yes, you definitely are in the right place!

I’m deeply convinced that a travel experience is made of three key ingredients: Exploring, Discovering and Experiencing. No great travel can take place without a combination of these ingredients. Of course traveling can be expensive and the costs may make you give up some destinations.

This section of Praise of Folly is dedicated to travel on a low budget. Here I share with you suggestions and tips on my recent trips around the world on a low to medium budget.

Not all those who wander are lost.
