Bonus: Experts say that choosing experiences over materialistic items is proven to make you happier in the long run anyways.

5. Let the Destination choose you

Be flexible with where you are going and choose a location that you may have not considered before based on a flight or travel deal. Google Flights has a great feature that allows you to check out easy flight paths from your location while plainly laying out starting prices.

Tip: It does help if you choose a general vicinity on the map that fits within your budget. For example, Southeast Asia and Central/South America are well known regions that are affordable for travellers in-country.

3. Shop at Local Markets

One of the top noted travel expenses by individuals is food. Shopping at the local markets or neighbourhood grocery stores is a great start to keep your wallet (and your tummy) happy.

Tip: Certain hostels will have communal kitchens to utilise to make this even easier. You can also bring snacks and necessities from home -- I travel with a mini French Press and ground coffee to feed my caffeine addiction on the go.

7. Walk & Use Public transport

If you make a point to not use Uber or Grab in your home life to save a few bucks, implement this practice when you travel too. Worried about getting lost in a foreign destination? That can be half the fun, and you may also find a new place you wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Of course, walking isn’t always the most sensible option. Nowadays most places are equipped with public transport options that are still cheaper alternatives to private hire.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum
