Always wanted to travel the world but always didn’t think you had the money? Well these young couples proved travelling on a super budget to be possible. Karol Lewandowski recent posted in BoredPanda about how him and his partner managed to travel to over 50 countries for about $8 a day
His post writes, “We are young travel bloggers from Poland who did not have a lot of money but we wanted to see the world. We bought an old van for $600, painted it, took tents and supplies of food and just took off.
In 6 years we visited more than 50 countries and we traveled more than 150.000 km on 5 continents.
We never paid for accommodation (we sleep in the van and in tents) and we eat what we cook. Here’s a short story, in pictures. Since many asked how we manage to travel spending only $8 a day, we wanted to explain it a bit further. The main cost is the fuel – that’s why other people travel with us and share fuel costs. We travel slowly and often stay in one place for a few days, so we save on fuel. Also lots of people are ordering a postcard from our trip – they get a postcard from a beautiful place, and we get the money for one liter of fuel.
Made selfies in the most beautiful places… Climbed to the top of huge rocks in Norway… We do not pay for accommodation because we sleep in the van or in tents – on beaches, cliffs, mountains.
Often, strangers invite us to their homes. Polish people living abroad often help us. The food we buy in supermarkets and eat what we cook – we do not pay for restaurants. For example, in Australia we ate kangaroo steaks because it was the cheapest meat.

When the car breaks down – we repair it, beacause during the trip we have learned how to do this. And when we need mechanics help, they very often do not take money from us because they are impressed with our trip and want to help us and be a part of our adventure.
We have our own electric shower and 150l water tank on the roof so we don’t pay for showers. Sometimes we just use rivers or lakes. Between continents we transport the car on the ship. It is very simple.
Looked at incredibly green fields in Iceland…
Rode camels in Sahara We sometimes have sponsors – when we have to spend a lot of money on something. For example, the transport of car across the ocean to Australia and the US – sponsors paid for it in exchange for their advertising on the van. Logos on a car is advertising for such companies, which helped us to transport the car through the oceans. Our blog is the most popular travel blog in Poland – now we work as bloggers and thats how we earn money. People even began to join us.
And thanks to that we can be still on the road because we just need a laptop and internet to work. We published two books about our trips and they give us some money. We do photo sessions for companies or doing advertising clips in exotic locations and companies pay us for it. We sometimes also work as graphic designers and IT specialist (online).
