by Matt Kepnes


Most people want to travel the world, but many believe that it's simply too expensive to do so. Big corporate travel companies push the ideas of expensive flights, five-star hotels, and fancy tours to generate revenue. They have you believe that a luxurious vacation will ease the stress of your daily life, if only you have the money for it.

Matt Kepnes is on a mission to change that mindset. Kepnes wants to help people travel not just for short trips here and there, but to embrace travel as an integral part of life. Decades of nomadic life experience give Kepnes first-hand knowledge of the ins and outs of budget travel, and How to Travel the World on $50 a Day is his way of passing that insight on.

Learn how to live on the road, and see the places of your dreams for a price that you never could have dreamed of.
