HOW TO TRAVEL ANYWHERE YOU WANT

Published

on

Have you ever said one of these things:

“I wish I could travel more but I can’t afford it.”
“I wish I could travel more but I don’t have the time.”
“I’m not sure how to start planning my trip.”
“I don’t know if I can save enough money for a trip.”
“I don’t know where to begin.”

I’ve been there. Like you, I used to think travel was something I could never afford to do. I didn’t grow up with much money and my family or friends didn’t travel much – and when we did it was to hotels and resorts. As grew older, I worked all the time, my parents didn’t pay my way, and I was unsure where to find the tools I needed to make travel a reality. I saw the commercials, watch the ads, and read the travel magazines and thought “I’ll never be able to afford to travel.”

But then I went traveling and realized everything I knew about travel was a lie. Travel is way more affordable than people make it out to be. It is something that is possible for anyone – and I want show you how.

I am here to tell you that it is 100% possible – no matter where you are from or what your income level.

I’ve spent the last ten years traveling the world and the last eight showing people how they can do it too. I am here to tell you those dreams in your head don’t have to be just dreams. They can be a reality.

It’s my mission now to help traveler like YOU to realize YOUR travel dreams the same way those five backpackers helped me realize mine.

My advice has been featured on the following major media sites because, time and time again, it’s the best budget advice out there:

Here’s what other travelers thought of this book

“This is a great practical book that will make you rethink what’s possible traveling on a budget. The philosophy, country details, and online resources provide an outstanding guide to help make your dream a reality. This book was key in the decision to quit my job and travel the world once I realized how affordable it can be! Best budget travel book out there!” – Justin

“I’m a pretty frugal traveler and subscribe to Nomadic Matt’s blog. So, I was curious what he had to say in his new book and whether it’d be better than what’s already on his blog. The verdict? It’s BETTER. While many of these tips might also be on his blog (though I know not all of them are), his new book organizes the tips in a very logical and helpful format.” – Peg

“Great starter travel guide. Following the guidelines from this book and a few personal tweaks I was able to start traveling immediately without much money. I am cheapskate but I want to travel in comfort. This book taught me the beginnings of how to get that done!” – Lothaire

“Lots of truly useful information and we’ll worth a read. Most of the tips are oriented more for the traveler than the tourist, an important distinction. I’ve used quite a few of these techniques over the years and can verify they work and in many ways (if not most) enhance the traveler’s experience rather than hinder it. If I was new to travel, is read it at least twice, then keep a copy on my Kindle or smartphone for reference on the road.” – Anne

“This book gave me loads of INVALUABLE info for my upcoming trip to Europe! Little things that I never would have thought about otherwise. Matt gives the reader tidbits about every possible thing one could think of, and then you can expand your research from there, on the subjects you deem important for your personal journey. If you are a first time backpacker, you must read this book. I paid something like 13 bucks for it. As a very budget conscious traveler, It is worth its weight in gold!” – Heather

“Got more out of it than I ever expected! Great stuff! Worth your money, big time!” – Hannah

“I learned so much from this book. It is/was very helpful in planning my trip to Europe this summer and gave me some good tips on how to survive while in Europe. I would recommend this book to any traveler.” – Aimee

Whether a two week, two month, or two year trip, we all want to stretch our money further. We want to find ways to travel longer and more often. My book will show you how to go anywhere you want without breaking the bank. I will show you the tips that have kept me traveling to where I want, when I want. No matter how long you want to travel for, now you can.

According to a report conducted by the UN, the Kingdom now ranks the second in the Arab World and the 36th globally among countries with very high human development.

The Human Development Index measures the prosperity levels of countries that enable them to achieve equality, welfare and justice for their population, in comparison to other countries.

The index states that the Kingdom has climbed three places since 2018 and now proudly ranks the 36th out of 189 countries.

“Saudi Arabia’s 2018 HDI of 0.857 is below the average of 0.892 for countries in the very high human development group and above the average of 0.703 for countries in Arab States. From Arab States, countries which are close to Saudi Arabia in 2018 HDI rank and to some extent in population size are Iraq and Syrian Arab Republic, which have HDIs ranked 120 and 154 respectively,” the report said.

It comes as no surprise for Saudi Arabia to make such a remarkable achievement, especially with all the reforms currently in place with the 2030 vision in mind.

Sheikh Mohammed took to his Twitter to announce the news saying, “Today we change the system of issuing tourist visas in the country, to make the duration of the tourist visa for five-years, multiple uses, for all nationalities. We receive more than 21 million tourists annually and our aim is to establish the country as a major global tourist destination.”
