map of the most affordable US states

map of the most affordable US states At the end of the holiday season, one question always looms: “how much money that I don’t have did I just spend?” Most of us answer this sometime in January, but the truth is that Americans are big on spending year-round. However, a map from HowMuch.net shows that the amount Americans spent in 2017 varies quite a bit state-to-state.

Much of the rise in visitor numbers has been caused by ongoing security concerns over travel to north Africa and Turkey. Travel to Turkey suffered last year due to a…

What traveling taught me about money

What traveling taught me about money I’VE BEEN fortunate to fill the last eleven years of my life with travels and adventures: day trips, weeks away, months abroad, and even years wandering the world.

It took me several months of frustration and dissatisfaction to come to terms with the idea that full-time traveling is more about learning, planning, and actively engaging with the changing environment than just visiting and checking places off my ever-growing want list. In the first months of my travels, I felt disappointed about how I was facing my new life, especially the correlation between how much money I was spending…
