No Bullsh**.

I am always preaching to you that “travel isn’t expensive,” and really – that statement and theory is entirely relative. You can go on whatever budget fits your travel personality (quiz) and destination of choice.
Back to the story, I promised you on how I managed to get to Bangkok for $15.30. (proof below)
This is proof that I traveled to Thailand for $15.30
Back when I was in Corporate America, I had a very lucrative career, a lit social life, and silently suffering from Anxiety Disorder and Depression.
Let Instagram and Facebook tell it; I was living my best life.
And I was – until I wasn’t.
For over a year, every Wednesday I went out for a “lunch date” when I was sitting in the corner of the couch in my therapist’s office.
Then it struck me.
We can recreate our lives.
I don’t have to be in this ‘sunken place.’
*Light bulb*. I was going to leave Corporate America and do the one thing that always made me feel happy and alive – travels the world!
Probably like you, I thought travel was sooooooooo expensive. Particularly for the places that I wanted to see and experience. I was ready to get in those SE Asian streets and flourish! photo at Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai, Thailand for Travel Hacking course and blog post

But how in the hell would I be able to afford to do this without breaking the bank and blowing my savings so quickly? I had no idea, but I know way too many people were traveling and I knew all of them weren’t loaded like that.
After weeks, if not months of researching and digging on the internet, I learned about travel hacking.
The online definition says it’s the art of collecting frequent flyer miles and points to travel for free (or damn near free). (I made that last bit up LOL)

Also, there are several ways to travel hack, but I mostly focus on flights – since that is typically the largest expense when it comes to travel, whether domestic or international.
With travel hacking, it’s something you have to be committed.
Because you and many others are curious as to how I can travel so much, I put together a fundamentals course on travel hacking called Book It For a Buck: Travel Hacking 101.
