I’m curious to find out how people have found ways to travel around and this is sort of an informal survey - maybe we can all learn from each other. I once met a European guy (IIRC, he was Dutch and a technician) in an airport who was spending the night there since his next flight was the following day - he works 6 months out of a year, earning enough to fund his next 6 months diving in different places around the world. I know a nurse who travels doing the same thing.
I’ve used the following methods:
Work - taught ESL in a college in China, flights and apartment paid for the first month
Work trips - either taking an extra day when on a work trip or tagging along with my husband on his work trips
Used airline miles
Road trip for a whole month and staying with relatives/friends or sleeping in my car
Has anyone here ever sold most of their stuff, pulled up sticks and just became a (semi-)nomad? If so, I envy you! Still trying to figure out the best way to sell stuff online. I’m not too fond of wasting time on a yard sale, which I’ve done a couple of times.
