Everyone loves to travel! Who doesn’t enjoy exploring a new country, tasting new and interesting foods, diving into the history and culture of a new city? Or if you’re less adventurous, at the very least kicking back and living like a local might sound appealing to you. But the problem is that it’s too expensive to travel!… Or so you think.
