The Toughest Part of Travel is Deciding to Go When asked how can I afford to travel so much, I feel like retorting with: how can you afford your rent? To keep a dog? To have children? To smoke? When I travel, I have no rent to pay, no dog to feed, no kids to look after or cigarette companies to support, so 100% of the money I have can go on travel. Keeping to a budget of $15 a day is fairly easy if you're CouchSurfing (free), eating street food ($2 a meal) and travelling on the chicken bus ($10 per 100 miles). That's just $5500 a year -- less than a typical British cigarette smoker will spend on ciggies over the same period and much, much less than the rent on a flat in London or the cost of bringing up children....

  3. Hi,
    Thanks very much for the question on my blog. I’m afraid I don’t have
    any talks to the “general public” lined up right now – they are all at
    schools/conferences etc…
    I’ll definitely post here though when there is one available!

    Hello,
    Im doing a project at Bournemouth University and i’m looking into the problems Cycling expeditionists have with their tents. Is it awkward to pack? how could this be improved? Whats the impacts of having so much weight on the bike? What are the issues you came acrros if any with all the gear you had on your trip.

    Please help me understand the problems you faced on your trip to help me design a solution.

    Kind Regards

    Catherine Le Sueur
