2. What are your favorite countries?
I just turned 28 in Summer 2019! Wow, that sounds old to me. Most of my traveling was done at 21 (Central America), 23 (China & Europe), & 25/26 (Everything Else).
4. How do you afford to travel?
I work and save money. I've been a teacher, a kitchen hand, a Sales Associate, a receptionist, and a tutor in the US; a fruit packer in New Zealand; and a painter & receptionist in Australia.
5. How much do you spend when you travel?
When my partner Emmett and I spent ten months living and working in New Zealand, our expenses amounted to 31, 000 USD for two people. That basically breaks down to $50 per day per person.
