Twenty euros a day, a backpack in our backs and a camera in our hands is all we need to travel around the world. At least, we have not required anything more to conquer 17 countries in just four months.
A plane? Only if it’s necessary. Any hotels? None. Any organization? The minimum possible of it. When you travel on a little, you can live a lot. Nowadays, the possibilities of reducing costs are endless. Outside our borders, hitchhiking is a transport method as any other. And how could I ever forget Couchsurfing, the blessed web wich allows you to sleep for free wherever you go, sharing homes with the locals’ home. These are tools wich are not only a financial support, but they also let you know better the place where you are.
There was a time in which we checked everything before every trip: the shortest path, the most comfortable transportation, and the most luxurious hotel. Now we don’t mind doing a twenty-five-hour train and sharing a room with other fifteen people when we arrive in our destination. Because there’s a day when you realize that every mattress is a good bed , that anything in movement is a good way of transport and you can reach anywhere in the world with the only help of a pen and a smile . Needless to say that if we can choose, we prefer a clean toilet.
