Traveling costs money
I’m often asked how I finance this trip – whether I have rich parents or have hit the jackpot? The answer is simple: I worked for a few years and saved money. I´m aware that I am lucky to be born in Europe. Because there, it is relatively easy to find a job where you can earn enough to save some money.
After more than three years on the road my savings are finished, but there are always possibilities to earn some money or to travel with less money or pay in different ways.
There are people who live (and even travel) entirely without money. This complete exit from the monetary system, which is, in it´s present form, responsible for so many injustices in this world, is tempting for me. But still I´m not ready for that step (maybe I never will). But I try to spend my money responsibly and limit my consumption to only the necessary and meaningful.
I don´t want to just ask people for money, but I still want to offer the possibility of supporting me. Now for the fourth time I made a photo calendar to give to people who support me and I´m also thinking of some photo prints or a small booklet about my journey.
If you like what I’m doing, what I write, if I inspire you to live your dream, to travel, to take an adventure or you just enjoy reading about my adventures – then you can support me and get a calendar for the year 2017 in return.
Other ways of support:
I am always happy for greetings, feedback, tips and advice to countries which I will be traveling to soon (New Zealand, South america). Or maybe you know someone there or live there yourself, and want to invite me for a night. Just send me a message.
