Permanent traveler, world nomad, there are many names used to describe us by the ones more afraid to leave everything behind and follow their dreams to live in total freedom and explore this beautiful world. Truth be told, whatever the name might be, there is only one thing that connects all these amazing people roaming the planet and collecting experiences wherever they go, that is the love to discover, to meet, to see and to do everything before their feet cannot help them anymore.
Many think that this is the life and there is nothing better than being a permanent traveler. They are not far from the truth, though there are also downsides and times are never as marvelous as depicted in those fascinating stories and photos you might hear or see. Being a permanent traveler implies a great level of risk and dangers, plunging head first into the unknown for the sake of the experience.
What do you have to do to become a permanent traveler, one might ask... Well the first thing would be to be ready to leave everything and everyone behind, as you might go for weeks or months with little or no contact with family and friends back home. You also have to adjust your standards of living and have a decent budget upon living, as there are few people who are able to travel for little or no money at all.
Finding the best deals and offers for traveling, as well as not minding third world travel conditions, should also find a way in your repertoire. Browsing the internet to find the cheapest hostel deals, couch surfing, working to get food and shelter, even sleeping under the stars should not frighten you if you wish to become a permanent traveler. There are hundreds of ways one can save and get better deals on travel services, but most of them will come natural after a while.
The most important and first thing you should ever worry is having meaningful experiences, knowing new people and their stories, immersing yourself into the local culture and learning from everything you see or hear, these are the real benefits from traveling the world. So, the best advice I could give anyone is to find joy from traveling, having fun and feeling filled just by the knowledge and friends you find through your travels around this magnificent world.
