~Could a student or a volunteer aford it?
~What are the alternatives ways for travelling cheaper?
Nowadays, especially with the economical crisis, travelling has become a really expensive sport and some people can not afford it. Most of people believe if they decide to travel they must spend a fortune. However, there are lot of alternatives ways that are interested in being mentioned.
As a student,I desired to live different experiences and try my limits. However, my family supported me financially, so I wasn’t as much independent to do the things that I wanted to. Day by day living just a simple routine, for me wasn’t enough. So I started to think ways to come out of it.
Then, I informed about european projects and their benefits. They provide to people the opportunity to travel literaly for free due to the fact, they give to volunteers, which have selected free airoplane tickets, free accomodation and three meals per day. People have the opportunity to work on some workshops, to live with other volunteers for all over the word (but mostly from Europe) and to live in a foreing country for more or less one week. In addition to, european union gives the chance to people to live more than one week, participating in ESC or EVS (European voluntarily service). It can takes placce from a month to a year. So how facinating is that?
In case that people want to travel bythemselves, always there are some optional ways to do it. First of all, people can just search for a company without to choose any sepsific day or place. They can just search randomly flight and show the cheapest month. In this way will be able to find tickets propably for 10-15 euro one way.
Secondly, when people book their ticket can search about hostels and not hotels. But even if still canot afford always they can try on couchsurfing. One of the biggest free applications that give the opportunity to people to spend their night or more for free in a house. This is really important because also they can meet the person and talk with him about their cultures, to be their tour guides (if they have spare time) and to share with them propably typical recipes or typical places to visit, that only a local could know.
Another good way for someone to travel cheap is to try hitchike in the country he desires to travel through. Instead of wasting his time and money to wait for the bus, train etc, always they can find a company and fun in hitchiking. In case that someone does not want to take this risk there is bla bla car, one of the biggest application for travel with less money anywhere you want in Europe.
