I love budget travel. Not only due to the fact that I have quit my job to travel the world, but also because I love a challenge. In this post, I am going to tell you what methods I use to travel the world on a budget and how I travelled for a whole month spending only £10 per day.
For years I have been travelling fast. Trying to see the highlights of a country in the time that I managed to take off work. Twenty-five days in Brazil, three weeks in India, Two weeks to travel through Italy etc. Truly believing I was seeing the world.
But now things have changed for me. After quitting my job at the end of 2016, I haven’t looked back. Slow travel is my thing, and even more so, slow travel by road. Not by bus and trains but self-drives are my preference.
Braga, for me, is a lesser-known city in Northern Portugal. However, I was surprised to learn that it is, in fact, Portugal’s third-largest city.

León (or spelt Leon for those who can’t find an accent on their keyboards) is a lesser-known city in Northern Spain but is well known by Pilgrims who are walking the Camino Way. I would say it is well worth a visit due to its beautiful architecture and its accessibility to the surrounding national park, the Picos de Europa. As it is less popular than more well-known cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Santander, it is friendlier on your purse strings.
