My dream is to travel the world. How do you afford it?

Ok here we go: 

First you need to mentally prepare to travel the world: 

Next you need to find a way to make money and save money while travelling:

Wondering just how we do it?

You still are going to need to plan:

Curious about travelling for free? Try WWOOF: 

Wondering what you do all day? 

Think you will only stay in hostels?

Wondering where to go instead of Thailand? 

And lastly, here is a ridiculous video:

Yürüyüş dünyanın içine girme yöntemidir, kat edilmiş doğanın içine girmenin bir yoludur, günlük yaşamı tanıma ya da algılama biçimlerine kapalı bir evrenle ilişki kurma yoludur.

I was quite alright with not visiting Hobbiton, I told myself.
I’d survive not seeing Bilbos door and not drinking beer in the Green Dragon. Who need’s that touristy stuff anyways? Like everyone’s going there. It can’t be so special.
Well, I went on an unexpected journey and found myself in Matamata, with a ticket to the film set in my hands, thanks to the awesome woman who gave me a lift. 

Today I experienced what must be something like the wet dream of every nerd on this planet. And I’d definitely have mourned not seeing this fabulous creation of fake trees and leaves, not discovering that I’m actually hobbit sized (the extras were all 5'4’’ or smaller. Technically I qualify as a hobbit. So what about second breakfast?)…

Mt Doom👣✈✔🌏
Welcome to the Lord of the Rings location of Mordor
Tongariro Alpine Crossing (19.4 km / 12.1 miles) “ I’ve been told it would take approximately 6.5 hours for the entire trip. So I assumed this trek wouldn’t be too challenging since I am used to hiking in the mountains from Germany. After 2.5 hours hiking we took a little break. There it was! We were right in front of Mt Ngauruhoe which is better known as Mt Doom from the movie the Lord of the Rings. It was the centre of Frodo’s quest to save Middle-Earth. Mt Ngauruhoe is an active stratovolcano and is located between the active volcanoes of Mount Tongariro to the north and Mount Ruapehu to the south. It took me 4 hours to get to the top of Mt Ngauruhoe. On the way up we had to deal with ash scree and sharp rocks, which was very tiring. I slipped off a few times due to the challenging surface. It felt like I was hiking for ages even though it was just an altidude of 900 metres. Once I finally made it to the top I experienced this feeling of pride looking down and admiring all the beautiful formations of mother earth. I can’t even find the words for how I felt. I have seen a lot in my life, but this was definitely one of the most memorable adventures I have ever done.“ The locations can be visited independently. Be prepared for the elements. The climbs can be steep and the weather unpredictable.

It’s time to face the challenge, feast on the adventure and treat yourself to a truly unique and unforgettable experience in New Zealand. Enjoy. Daniel S. from Germany
