Of course, you have to be realistic about this, you can’t just declare that it is alright now to use all that time and spend all that money right?
Well, here are some ways you can do to make travelling on a tight budget happen.
One, you have to do a lot of research about currencies. If you have 1000 dollars right now, at this time, try to google its currency conversion into your country of destination. After having done so, you will notice that this will give you more relief because you will be able to have a better estimate of all the expenses you have incur. This will also save so much energy and time from all the worrying you are doing right now because of these travel budget issues. If your 1000 dollars is quite huge in that country, now you are on the right pace, but do not worry if that place is a bit more demanding in terms of money, you could always find another time to plan in getting there, say summer of next year, for you to still save more money and time right now.
Once you have successfully done that, well you need to search the time right now in that particular country. Why? Because you just have to. You will realize that maybe right now, it is a time for festive occasion in there, or a political turmoil.

No, it will even save you from the horrors of budgeting a connecting flight because you are stuck in trouble and you just want to leave right away.
Third, know your lifestyle choice. Are you the type of person who is a manic shopper? Are you a hoarder? Do you like to dine in an expensive resto? Are you not comfortable with lodging places? Do you have many vices? Are you on a medication that costs a lot of money?
