Travel Blogger Friday #12

As a soon to be budget backpacker I’ve been doing my best to keep my spending down. I moved from a 2 bedroom unit into a rented room with my sister. Sold off the furniture I didn’t want to keep and am preparing to sell my beloved vehicle to pay out the loan on it.

Overall I’m pretty happy with my spending vs saving plan, some things could be improved but just sharing a house with family is enough sacrifice I think. In saying that I’ve been outdone well and truly by Ayngelina from Not only is the blog name awesome but her post on Saving For Long Term Travel has some great tips.

I can honestly say anybody that makes their own alcohol to save money for an overseas trip is welcome to come party with me any day of the week, I’m just jealous I never thought of it.

Just like me Ayngelina is preparing to depart on a RTW journey so be sure to subscribe to her blog and follow along, only good things can come when you combine bacon with magic.

    Oh you are far too sweet!

    I officially have 34 days left and I’m hoping my blog will be a bit more active as I’ve been buried in work and neglecting my blog the past few weeks.

      Hey Ayngelina. I have found it hard to keep up with my blog lately also. With so much going on at work and trying to ensure I have everything ready it sure is getting hectic.

    I never thought I would move back w/ the fam, but I’m getting ready to do it in June for 1 year. I will save $20,000!!! It’s totally worth it. Checking out A’s website now…

      Hey Andi, The savings you make by moving back home can’t be missed as a would be traveller. I’ve saved so much money by moving in with my sister.

      It kills your social life but hey the life I’ll have travelling will be so much more awesome I can deal with it 🙂

      Glad your checking out Ayngelina’s page she’s totally cool.
