I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to more than 100 countries and all 50 states of the United States of America, driven by my love of travel, to see other places in the world and experience other cultures.
One of the main travel questions I get is about money. People think travel is expensive and that it can’t be done unless you have a lot of money. True, it takes money to travel, but not as much as people think. If you are not the type who needs a fancy hotel and creature comforts, you can travel for long periods – for years – on a budget.
You can teach (I taught English in some countries, both on my own and with a company and it paid well). But there are many other things you can do to save money and even make money.
I tell you how to travel longterm and save money in this video I did live on YouTube. Click on the link, check it out.

I have visited Hong Kong three times between the early 1990s (when it was still under British rule) and 2016 and always enjoyed the city. It’s a bustling, fascinating metropolis of cultural contrasts, poverty and wealth. The food – if you figure out where to eat – can be amazing as well. Definitely go. For a taste, check out this fantastic video by National Geographic.
