With 37+ countries in my rearview, and nearly all of that travel done on very little income (often as a volunteer or while working minimum wage jobs), I find myself in the unique position of being able to encourage others to live a True Budget Travel life.

This life is meaningful – the destinations chosen are meaningful for me for one reason or another – and frugal, minimalistic, and deep. I travel with the eye of an artist and the heart of an explorer going beyond the typical tourist traps – though they can be meaningful, too! – and the desire of a world-changer.

Let’s make travel more meaningful together as we explore ways of living frugally, with less focus on luxury and more focus on real life, culture, and the love of all people and nations.
