11 Thoughts A Budget Traveller Will Have

Budget travellers are a special breed. We are willing to sacrifice a lot of dignity for a dollar. Becoming a budget traveller can often mean changing your mindset and outlook on life. Thoughts you may never have at home suddenly crop up everywhere. It’s crazy out there.

 

Think you’re a budget traveller? Well, you truly are if you’ve had these thoughts.

 

How far can I physically walk to avoid paying for transport?

via GIPHY

 

 

If a hostel includes free breakfast then I am freakin’ staying there

via GIPHY

 

 

The only word I know in this language is ‘beer’

via GIPHY

 

 

I can’t even remember the last time I slept in a room by myself

 

via GIPHY

 

Heavy/expensive souvenirs…

via GIPHY

 

Yes, I am willing to spend the exact same money on beer that I refused to spend on food/activities/souvenirs

via GIPHY

 

New international friends are not only cool new international friends but they are free accommodation next time I visit

 

via GIPHY

 

Heck yeah this museum is donation entry

via GIPHY

 

Only ever filtering accommodation by ‘Price Low To High’

via GIPHY

 

If I only eat porridge for two days I can totally afford the Eiffel Tower / London Eye / etc. etc.

via GIPHY

 

Getting to know all the “home brand” supermarket products from every country

 

via GIPHY

 

If you’ve had some of these thoughts when travelling then congratulations — you are a true budget traveller! It can be a tough slog sometimes (especially when you hear about the extravagences of those not on a budget) but budget travelling is a truly fulfilling experience.
