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

  • Опубликовано: 9 фев 2015
  • 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:
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    I’ve not had a permanent address for 2 years now and everything he says is right. People are way friendlier than you would think. It is fun and exciting, but it gets lonely after a while and you crave long lasting relationships. But I suppose a trip back home will fix the loneliness. This lifestyle is rather addictive though so tread carefully.

    I am currently 19 and I have the same dreams to travel around the world. When I ask to my parents to let me go to explore my own country by my own or with my friends they just say "you are not old enough right now to travel by your own or with your friends" I just kinda hate this line. Everytime I ask them they only have one thing to say to that you are not old enough right now.
    Currently my aim is to do my graduation and get a good job so that I can earn handsome amount of money and after graduation they will not say anything to me.I will be free like a bird and then I will start living my life,I will start exploring new places,i will make new friends listen to their stores and experience as I always believe that 70 years are too short to explore the world fully.
    Hope i will live my life just as I wanted to live it right now.
    Peace ☮️

    With almost no money?! Almost?! So what were the expenses - visa costs, insurance, flights... initial budget? funny presentation but not very useful. Also you have to be a certain kind of character. Most are not suitable for this. Extroverts and men have major advantages going forward like this. Introverts just don't have the energy to be around people 24/7 and no, it has nothing to do with shyness ;-)

    Never pay rent or bills, stay for free with "friends" who do have to pay the rent - never pay for food, always turn up at dinner time and get a free meal off others. There is a word for that - Parasite.

    I like the idea of traveling. But how is the communication like Wi-Fi, and phone services. How you managed to make appointments with the couchsurfing website?Did you really didn’t have any negative experiences? I access the website, and the search is pretty big! How you decide to choose a place to stay?

    I came back to the UK after being in Australia for 1 year and I currently feel in limbo, working 9-5 and living at home with my parents again. Saving up and hoping to go travel again in the summer, I have itchy feet!!

    I like to propose something. tell where you are from, and something to visit in your country. i begin: I´m from Spain and the most expensive zone is south, because of the beaches. I recommend to pass quickly around there and go to Asturias or Galicia, in the north, which are more beutiful and also people is more friendly. Perhaps you could visit Portugal first, then go to the north of Spain, and end your jurney in France. I would like to add that Spain is really nice, and there are other places like Barcelona, the coast, Madrid or the San Fermines in Pamplona that are worth it
