How to travel on a tight budget?

So, my boyfriend and I are kind of in a rut. We’ve been together for a while, and share an apartment, but life is just generally boring. All we do is work so we can afford the bills, and after that we’re usually to worn out to do anything. The one thing that we both want really badly is to travel. Just like, move all our stuff back home, and go out and travel around the country. But how can we do that on a very limited budget?
Any input/advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Well, one way you can save money while traveling is staying in hostels, and taking cheap flights especially around Europe with airlines like RyanAir or buy a cheap Eurail pass to take the train around.

You can also easily live in south-east asia on a budget, I know when I did it was cheaper than rent in Canada.

Have fun and be creative!

What would be the average travel budget per day in Russia in GBP/EUR?

I am looking at going to Russia for a few weeks in June. Not including hostels or train travel, how much should I set aside for food/drink etc. per day?
I’m looking at spending time in Moscow, St Petersburg and Ekaterinsburg. Thanks!

catfishexpert answers:

Depending on your taste, but I would say if you are traveling on a budget Food/Drink can run anywhere from 20-40 euros per day. If you are planning to dine and wine at nice places it can jump up to 60-150+ euros per day, especially in Moscow.

What is the recommended daily travel budget for Argentina?

I am visiting Argentina with my boyfriend in March 2007 to see the country and visit some of his family. I know the exchange rate is very favorable to the US dollar, but I was curious as to how much people spent on average per day on things like food and excursions. I have heard Buenos Aires is cheaper than super-touristy Ushuaia, but I was interested in an average. Thanks!!!!

catfishexpert answers:

I went to Bs.As. 5-6 months ago, and every day living actually is cheaper than Chile or Brasil.
If you consider taking cabs (taxi) from place to place, and eating out twice a day, in average restaurants, you shouldn’t spend more than 20-25 US dollars a day p/p.

An entire meal in Puerto Madero, which is one of the high class places in the city, will cost you no more than US$ 15 p/p.

And another tip: if wanna go shopping, the shopping centers are the same as everywhere. You’ll find regular stores at regular prices. If you wanna spend less money, go to national clothing stores, like in Florida street. (as the taxi drivers for more places).

Good luck in your trip 🙂
