Guest Post: Make the road your home for pennies on the mile

I visit students around the country encouraging them to travel. Many of them ask about the cost, after all they say, “We are just poor students.” They think travel is a cruel joke — when you are young and have the knees and time to see the world you don’t have the money, and when you are older you have the money and not the knees for it. I tell them the world is cheaper than they think it is.

I will always welcome others encouraging students to see the world. That’s why I’m happy to introduce you to Everett Pompeii, a student who is traveling the world on less than $8/day. He’s writing a book telling how, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to: Earth. He launched a Kickstarter campaign in support of his book project and is almost at his goal of $2,500.

Take it away Everett!

To Those Seeking a Higher Education,

I have a ticket to anywhere, and it’s yours for the taking. There is nothing that I can say or do to convince you take it, but if you want it, it’s yours. I’ve hitched the US’s Eastern Seaboard, backpacked Europe, and done all of the above while Down Under. And all that way, everyone kept telling me, “I could never.” Well, I’m here to tell you, YOU CAN! With a little sense of adventure and a bit of cunning, you can make the open road your home for pennies on the mile. A Prius would blush at what you’re capable of.
 
The key is not only to know this but to act on it. I’m a college kid too; We have no true commitments beyond the next week. Classes are cyclical. There’s no wife, no kids, no mortgage. All we have is potential, and it need not be squandered sitting idly in our youth.
 
“Much travel is needed before the raw man [or woman] is fully ripened.”
 
 Set the dates and make no other plans. It’s time to travel; it’s time to live.
 
Everett Pompeii runs the site Nemo’s Travels, and he is the author of ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to: Earth”, which is available on Kickstarter until June 29th, 2012.”

When hopping around to the Greek Islands a long while ago, my friends met an American boy named Darren. He was invited to come stay at our house (3 students living together). He showed up one day and stayed for a couple of months. Free boarding and stay for small work around. You can always help around on your way. In Europe you have the Youth Hostels and private room for rent. You have to be friendly, open-minded and flexible and random things will happen….

Bente, That’s a great story. Thanks for sharing and thank for taking in a traveler. I rarely get to return all of the hospitality I receive traveling. No one ever visits Indiana!
