Graham Hughes travel to EVERY COUNTRY in the world WITHOUT FLYING. I did it alone, on a shoestring budget, it took four years and got thrown in jail a couple of times.
When asked how can I afford to travel so much, I feel like retorting with: how can you afford your rent? To keep a dog? To have children? To smoke? When I travel, I have no rent to pay, no dog to feed, no kids to look after or cigarette companies to support, so 100% of the money I have can go on travel. Keeping to a budget of $15 a day is fairly easy if you're CouchSurfing (free), eating street food ($2 a meal) and travelling on the chicken bus ($10 per 100 miles). That's just $5500 a year -- less than a typical British cigarette smoker will spend on fags over the same period and much, much less than the rent on a squalid little flat in London or the cost of bringing up children.
"The toughest part of travel is deciding to go."
Travel isn't a question of being loaded, it's a question of priorities. Obviously if you want comfort and security, stay at home, work hard and maybe go on a cruise when you're 67 years old. If you're lucky enough to live that long. But if you want to see the world NOW, while you're young, rush headlong into the thrill and vigour of the unknown, wake up every day in a new place with new challenges and new friends, then the world is your dancefloor -- all you have to do is make the decision to GET OUT THERE and strut your funky stuff.
當他被問及如何我能負擔旅行這麼多，我覺得像批駁：你怎麼能買得起你的租金？要養狗？有孩子嗎？要抽煙嗎？當我旅行時，我沒有租到付，沒有狗飼料，沒孩子，照顧或香煙公司支持，所以100％的錢，我可以去旅遊。保持每天15元的預算是相當容易的，如果你是沙發衝浪（免費），吃的街頭食品（2一頓飯），雞公車（每100公里10元）行駛。這只是每年5500美元 - 較上年同期將花費不到一個典型的英國吸煙者FAGS多，遠遠小於一個骯髒的小單位，在倫敦的租金或撫養孩子的成本。
旅遊是不是正在加載的問題，這是一個問題的優先次序。顯然，如果你想要的舒適和安全，留在家裡，努力工作，也許當你67歲去郵輪。如果你足夠幸運，住這麼久。但是，如果你想看到的世界，當你年輕的時候，輕率地對未知的快感和活力，每天醒來了新的挑戰和新的朋友在一個新的地方，那麼這個世界是你的舞池 - 所有你必須做的是決定走出去，並支撐你的時髦的東西。
