Thank you, Rick!

I think the beautiful thing about travel is how easy it is to start small and expand from there. If your aim is to travel long-term with very little, start out by packing one backpack and going away for the weekend. Refine your needs as you go.

The most important thing I learned about traveling light and on a budget, is to plan ahead your spending. Figure out exactly how much you can live on per-day, then set aside that much money and stay within budget every day. If you can do that, then you can relax and focus on exploring and enjoying the time instead of worrying about money.

There is definitely a huge misconception around the nomadic lifestyle. It doesn’t require huge sacrifice or extreme discomfort and now with the Internet, communication and even work are easy to bring with us wherever we go.
