There are over seven billion people in the world and one way to get to know and understand the various cultures that make up the planet is to travel. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to trek to every corner of the globe. If you can take a trip around the world, that’s fantastic. But you don’t have to be rich to plan a memorable trip. You can choose to travel domestically or internationally. And you will want to get the most from your trip without going bankrupt.
Decide how much of a budget you have and stick with it. Select a good travel agent, or if you have the inclination and time, you can plan your own tour; there are many travel sites online that offer some great package deals. If you are traveling domestically, consider driving or seeing the country on a bus or train. If traveling abroad, check airline promotional fares, and avoid traveling during peak periods such as July, August, and December. If you’re not into flying, there are cruise lines that offer great money-saving incentives, and you’ll get to meet new people and possibly form lasting friendships.
You can take shorter trips if you are press for time or money, but if you don’t like traveling alone, you can join a travel club.
Lastly, wherever you travel, whether it’s domestically or internationally, try to stay and eat where locals live and eat. You will not only learn about their traditions, but they will learn more about your way of life.
