Cheap ways of traveling


Firstly I want to say that people do love travelling. Sometimes they can, sometimes they don’t. There are several reasons why they cannot, the first reason is they do not have money for this. But this is not an excuse, because there are cheap ways of travelling, and in this article I am going to share my experience of cheap travelling.

The first problem is transportation, to reach the point of destination, point of dream. Actually it depends what are your dreams and all. It depends you want to go to the country which is your neighbor or the country which is far from you.

If you want to go to Europe there are cheap flight with Wiz air airlines that goes to Poland, Hungary and some other countries as well. The ticket costs approximately 30 euros (tip for you will be to buy ticket much earlier, because it’s cheaper) afterwards you go to Poland or Hungary you can hitchhiking, It’s free.

Here are some tips for you if u want to hitchhike.

  • It’s more possible to catch a car if you are not alone, if you are with friend or anyone, I have no idea why but with my and my friends experience it works better.
  • Do not stand in the city center or village center, it’s more possible to stop a car if you stay on a highway, or on the road where no houses and civilization are.
  • Accept every suggested destination, it may be from 1 km to 10 or whatever. Because firstly its more interesting and secondly the time goes faster.
  • The only price you have to pay is your communication and your talk with the driver. But it is not obligatory, it depends on driver, some of them don’t talk at all. And yes, never say that you do not like the city he/she lives.

The second expensive thing of travelling is accommodation. But here we have couchsurfing. It is a web page where people register and have their applications filled, people suggest their flats or houses to you. You only have to fill your own application and write to the people who live in the city where you want to go. Almost 98 % will refuse but 2 percent is enough to have roof over your head. (www.couchsurfing.com).

Why people do stop the cars? Why do people host you for free? These are questions I want to answer in the second part of my article.

May be they are kind ones. Maybe they are trying to improve their karma. Maybe, but I think people want new experiences, people are bored from the ordinary way of living.  Imagine you are driving from one part of country to another all alone, you have no one to talk with no one to share your impressions, it’s sad, you will probably be bored. And all of a sudden you have an opportunity to have a passenger, why would you refuse?  With every new person you communicate with, your knowledge, your experience and personality grows, it doesn’t matter is it a good or bad experience. Everything will teach you, and if you do not want to develop you will probably pass by. There are all kind of people in the world, and the personality changes even in the same culture but in another culture imagine how all is different. It is interesting, is not it? When you hitchhike or do couchsurfing you don’t get only a free kind of things, you receive an opportunity to get to know with the different culture, and believe me the best way to do this is to live under the same roof with the native person. Of course there are people who do not want to talk or something, but it is experience as well. But from people who talk, and who communicate, you will learn so many interesting things it will blow your mind, you will find out that kind of places which are not in the travel guides. About their habits, about the best places and etc. and of course you will make friend with them and that’s the best gift both of you can make for each other.

Frankly saying if you do not want to feel the culture, do not want to have friends, do not want to have new experiences and only thing you want to check in the place and make your friends envy, this kind of thing as couchsurfing is, will probably be tough for you and my advice will be to collect money and rent some hostel bed, it is cheap without any responsibilities.

Now I give you an example of a host, who receives about 10 guests from coushsurfing per month. The first question I asked him was why did he accept guests so often, and he answered that he want to communicate with them to help them exploring his beautiful city, to tell many stories about his country, history, culture and many specific things. He also mentioned that he enjoys listening as well and wants to know about others culture. He is a 65 year old man living in Amsterdam. He lives alone, he told me bunch of breathtaking stories from his life, shared his experiences and I was glad to know him. Once I asked him if he was happy, and he answered that he is. Actually he was not looking happy, at least as other people include me think what happiness is, but I believed him. Everybody has it’s own meaning of happiness, he is too clever and to open to lie about that question. And yes I believed him, he I happy. Maybe someday I will write an article about him, time will show.

To conclude I will tell you that everybody can be happy everybody can travel, we just need to want it, we just need to try. Everybody can be happy, so be happy, it’s possible, it’s easy.
