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 five years on the road my initial savings are finished, but there are always possibilities to earn some money or to travel with less money or pay in different ways.
In the last two years I worked mainly in Australia and New Zealand, where wages are high and hard work pays off. I worked on farms, in gardens and in the forestry sector, putting a lot of effort into it, always my dream of continuing traveling in my mind. Earning money is the one side, the other side is spending it responsibly. I learned ways to live and travel without spending much 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 fifth 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 go on your own adventure or you just enjoy reading about my adventures – then you can support me and get a calendar for the year 2018 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 (Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru or anywhere else in 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.
