By airbnbing our guest bedroom and second bathroom, my husband and I saved enough money to help fund a year-long trip around the world. Here’s how you can earn extra income as an Airbnb host to pay for renovations, a wedding, a dream trip - anything. Use this link to signup and earn a $50 bonus after hosting a trip
Our one year trip around the world includes 27 countries in 12 months. We’ll take all forms of transportation, and stay at hostels, Airbnbs, and hotels. We’re also planning activities, which are generally more expensive, like gorilla trekking, scuba diving, and kitesurfing. Parts of our trip will be expensive while other parts will be cheap. We expect everything will balance out to roughly $100 to $150 CAD per person per day, or roughly $50,000 per person for the year. An amount blog posts tell us we’ll need, too. Our savings come down to three things: save as much as you can, generate extra savings, and make those savings grow. Here’s exactly how we’re doing it.
We're leaving for a year to travel the world. It’s a decision we made together. Mauricio and I had the privilege of travelling a lot while growing up, and we attribute many of our successes to it. Travelling has taught us to open our minds. Everyone has different beliefs and perspectives — some vastly different than our own. It has forced us to learn new languages and to express ourselves in new ways. It has taught us courage by stepping outside of our comfort zone and trying something new. Most importantly, it has taught us to be more loving and accepting of others.
