Bring Your Own Snacks
Being on an adventure and living out of your trusty backpack can really drain you. Snacks might seem like a silly addition to your gear, but it can really help you keep energy levels high between meals and rests. Even in the cheapest countries to visit, local vendors know that snacks are necessary during travel, and they tend to jack up the prices on quick bites to eat; dodge this unforeseen expenditure and bring your own protein or granola bars.
Buy a Train Pass
In a lot of places, especially Western Europe and all over Asia, there are train passes you can pre-purchase. These passes can allow you to travel all over the country you’re in, without worrying about cost after that initial purchase of the pass, for a set period of time. If you’re gonna be bouncing around a certain region, a train pass can save you hella money over the course of your entire trip. Train-hopping can really get you a great view of a country.
