Travelling, while not breaking the bank.

Travel the world despite paying debt with these simple tips


Debt is something tied up with the average American. It is something that starts the moment one goes off to college.

In 2018, 44.2 million Americans had approximately $1.48 trillion debt in student loan. Some students even contemplate if a monthly liability while still in school is worth the hassle.

Instead of paying off $350 a month in student loan, some prefer taking that amount elsewhere to multiply. Millennials have embraced the so called “digital nomad” lifestyle where they would take on a remote job and travel the world.

These people are location independent and use technology to perform their job. It allows them to  the are live and travel abroad while working.

Ironically, the feasible exchange rates abroad allows you to flex out even a small US-rated salary to live above means whilst still being able to save.

Here are some ways, tips, and tricks to pay off debt while still affording a nomadic and productive lifestyle. Travel the world despite paying debt with these simple guidelines.


Cheat on currency

We already indicated on top how currencies can be flexed out.

Statistically, a typical working class person spends around $40-50k a year on basic necessities such as food, shelter, transportation, and telephone. That $4,000 a month is bare minimum in the United States but is an enormous amount elsewhere.

Foreign expatriates are able to more than comfortably live on $400 a month in Southeast Asian countries like the Philippines and Thailand.

Some European cities such as Prague and St. Petersburg is another choice if you are willing to spend a little over $400.

All millennials want the good life without paying dues and student debt. The age of social media has sparked a ton of aspiring influencers to hack currencies and travel to places where it multiplies.

Taking on a remote job and traveling might just provide the best of both worlds. Expanding cultural and professional values and ideas are an added bonus when traveling.


Remember that you actually pay for taxes
