Travel. Until you start travelling, it seems like this illusive thing that you need to take time off work for, that you need to save an extraordinary amount of money for — something that needs to be planned heavily and stressed about for all of eternity before you take the two weeks off and are back in the rat race.

It doesn't have to be like that, and it really isn't. It's hard to overwrite the constant misinformation that travel has to be expensive, so it's Thrifty Backpacker's job to turn you into a bad-ass backpacker that's mastered the art of traveling the world on a dime.
