As you may have noticed, I love to travel and fortunately get to go away quite a bit. In fact I am currently writing this article on the plane to Los Angeles! While some of my trips are for work and therefore sponsored by a company, a huge chunk of my travel is self-funded. How do I do it? The short answer is I’m a smart saver – I have been self-funding trips abroad since I was 15. This doesn’t necessarily mean I earn a lot of money (I am in currently in a weird part-time work/full-time small business owner situation) but I am good at prioritising and setting aside funds every week, no matter how small.
