Hi! I’m Anthony, a sneaker collecting, coupon clipping, pizza making citizen of the world. There is nothing in the world I enjoy more than traveling, and not a day goes by I’m not thinking of some new adventure to be had. My family never travelled when I was a kid so I saved my money and went abroad for the first time at 20 years old, spending three weeks split between London, Amsterdam, and Berlin. Even though I made more tourist mistakes than I’d like to admit, I was hooked. The following year I travelled again, this time for 7 weeks and more than 10 European cities. I managed to get the costs down to roughly what I spent for three weeks the first time around. Since those first couple trips I have gotten much better at traveling frugally and have saved thousands of dollars in the process.
I will be using everything I’ve learned on my next trip : one year ( hopefully longer! ) traveling the world with my girlfriend and co-author Breada. I’ll be writing about different parts of our trip as we are going, but also about how to travel cheap yourself. With any luck, one of my writings will help you take the trip of your dreams!
My whole life nothing has excited me more than the beginning of a trip. From boarding a plane to someplace new to packing up the car to drive to Maine every summer, I’ve always loved every second of traveling (good, bad, and ugly). When I was 15 I had the opportunity to travel to Peru, and although it would be another six years before I would get a chance to leave the country again, I knew after that trip there was nowhere in the world I didn’t want to go. A few years ago I was lucky enough to meet someone with the same passion for travel (and eating), and while we’ve already had quite a few adventures, this is the one we’ve both been waiting for. Follow along as we write about our journey around the world, all of our previous adventures, and the steps we took to make this amazing trip happen. I promise if I can’t think of something to write about I’ll at least post about delicious food!
