Ever wanted to travel the world? Live a freedom lifestyle? Become a globe trotting digitalnomad?
Follow the time-tested techniques to travel the world – no matter the budget – from experienced traveling nomads such as Tina Girlic
Join virtual workforce
Whether you are a software engineer, web designer, translator, photographer, coach, etc., you can work with your team and clients through the Internet. You can work one-on-one via Skype and find work on freelance web sites, such as elance.com. Your hostel room or a local coffee shop will be your office during the day and in your free time you can explore the city and the countryside of basically any country in the world!
You don’t need to give up your job or your career in order to see the world for a year or maybe even longer. All you need to do, is set up your own business that can be run from anywhere in the world. Sounds too good to be true, right?:)

Share a car
Especially if traveling on your own, renting a car might be a bit pricy in some countries and it gets really boring. Why not share a car with somebody else? You only have to pay for the gas and you get to meet exciting people. If you google it, check also under carpooling (in Europe: www.carpooling.co.uk, www.blabla.car.com).
In the States, you can rent a car that a person is not using at the moment (because they are on vacation) and they left it at the airport (www.flightcar.com).

Become a camper for 1 dollar a day?!?
Yup, that’s possible as well. If you are traveling in the “wrong” direction (e.g. the other way a popular route that everybody else is traveling), you can rent a camper that needs to be brought to its original destination for a really low price. Sometimes they even give you money for the gas.
The downside of this method is that you are often limited in the number of days you need to return the camper. This way of traveling is popular in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. (http://www.imoova.com/, http://www.autodriveaway.com/)
