How to travel the world with almost no money | Tomislav Perko | TEDxTUHH

Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse - lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to.

Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way.

Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website: http://tomislavperko.com/en/.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

What an awesome talk! You really can't put a price tag on the life experience gained through travel! I've handed my notice in for my job and my partner and I are backpacking through Europe in July - I can't wait! I definitely agree with the balance - I still want a place to call home but would like to live in a way that feels right, not just working 9-5 to survive.

Amazing story :)))) So you were paid 20 AUD per hour or USD for job as a traffic diverter in Australia? Assuming you were working 8h per day, it's about $2000 for 13 days, so it's really very cheap for travelling 8 months worldwide... I wish I had so much courage to travell this way

Yeah, this is super kool. But as soon as he said hitchhike, most women began seeing this talk an option for someone else. It's not impossible, and I wholly encourage women to travel alone, and be adventurous.. to not be fearful. However this suggestion is just beyond the line of comfort, and beyond reasonable safety for women in most every society. We live in a world that does not value the freedom of women the same way it does men. Enjoyable to watch, but aimed at those of a certain privilege.

I want to see the world so badly experience it and learn that way I hate those stupid book in school I want to see it for myself.

but yeah I'm 15Years old now. I'm afraid of falling into the usual pattern school, college, work family all these things I want to live my life!!

I probably should just go through these years of school first.. should I travel after highschool and then when I'm back start college? Or first do my whole learning process and travel. I'm a bit afraid of travelling and then after it it will be hard to get back in school.

Best way to travel! If you travel with bling, you will get robbed. Also, perhaps this works for males, but I don't know if it'll be the same outcome for young females. :/ Bad weather, accidents, and the unpredictable can be more then some can handle alone. You do need to be rather clever about planning it.

So by your logic, traverse the world with little to no money, would in essence just make you temporarily HOMELESS. You didnt even really go any place significant...i mean Iran, Middle East, Australia? The whole thing looked liked a shitty adventure, if you want to call it that.

The first time I got the idea to travel, I went to the library and read a bunch of travel books. By the end of the day I had narrowed them down to two: "See Europe on $75US/day", and "Lonely Planet: India", which said that if I was willing to live like the locals, after transportation costs I could get by for ~$3US/day. (Not a typo, three US dollars a day.) If I sold everything I owned I might be able to afford three or four weeks in Europe, or an estimated 6 months in India. My girlfriend and I ended up spending 12 months in India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, flying home two days before our 1-year open-ended plane tickets would have expired. Together, aside from the cost of plane tickets, the two of us spent $2300US. Rent for the one-bedroom dive apartment we'd lived in before the trip was $500US/month plus bills; enough money for three months at home turned into a whole year traveling. On the road we spent even less than the Lonely Planet guide estimate, partly by renting an apartment in Varanasi for 2500 Rupees per month - ~$60US at the time - and cooking our own meals.

After we got home we immediately started planning for our next trip. But it is much easier to do those things when you don't have kids, don't own a house, and aren't paying off student loans so travel *first*, if you can. (If that decision would require a time machine, travel *soonest*.)

The biggest thing we learned: money is NOT the thing holding you back. You might *think* it is, but unless you have special needs it's not. Convincing yourself to take that first step is what holds people back. Convincing yourself to let go of the excuses and the fear and the numbing comfort of the familiar. Trusting that there are good people *everywhere*, and if they can survive where they are you will too.

It won't be easy. But everyone I know who took that first step considers it to be the defining moment of the rest of their lives.

My dream is to travel around the world and know many cultures, go to many places, that's one of the things that I would really like more than others things in my life, I just want to travel the world because I've always been fascinated about other cultures and knowing this small planet. But to be honest, I don't think I have the guts to do what he does, especially hitchhiking and asking people for money on the streets. I don't care about money, I don't want luxuries, but I guess I'm not as adventurous as he is.

You know...
If you are just a student or something you can always find an exchange program to another country (if you're not daring about just going to a new country all by yourself like that) there will be groups of people who will help you. Now in college level, you can even work in some countries (e.g. Germany).
I was an exchange student in Germany and the US.
Best of luck!
