Have you ever said one of these things:
“I wish I could travel more but I can’t afford it.”
“I wish I could travel more but I don’t have the time.”
“I’m not sure how to start planning my trip.”
“I don’t know if I can save enough money for a trip.”
“I don’t know where to begin.”
I’ve been there. Like you, I used to think travel was something I could never afford to do. I didn’t grow up with much money and my family or friends didn’t travel much – and when we did it was to hotels and resorts. As grew older, I worked all the time, my parents didn’t pay my way, and I was unsure where to find the tools I needed to make travel a reality. I saw the commercials, watch the ads, and read the travel magazines and thought “I’ll never be able to afford to travel.”
But then I went traveling and realized everything I knew about travel was a lie. Travel is way more affordable than people make it out to be. It is something that is possible for anyone – and I want show you how.
I am here to tell you that it is 100% possible – no matter where you are from or what your income level.
I’ve spent the last ten years traveling the world and the last eight showing people how they can do it too. I am here to tell you those dreams in your head don’t have to be just dreams. They can be a reality.
It’s my mission now to help traveler like YOU to realize YOUR travel dreams the same way those five backpackers helped me realize mine.
My advice has been featured on the following major media sites because, time and time again, it’s the best budget advice out there:
I put all my knowledge, the advice from this website, and tons of information you won’t find here in one easy to reference book!

Here’s what other travelers thought of this book
“This is a great practical book that will make you rethink what’s possible traveling on a budget. The philosophy, country details, and online resources provide an outstanding guide to help make your dream a reality. This book was key in the decision to quit my job and travel the world once I realized how affordable it can be! Best budget travel book out there!” – Justin
“I’m a pretty frugal traveler and subscribe to Nomadic Matt’s blog. So, I was curious what he had to say in his new book and whether it’d be better than what’s already on his blog. The verdict? It’s BETTER. While many of these tips might also be on his blog (though I know not all of them are), his new book organizes the tips in a very logical and helpful format.” – Peg
“Great starter travel guide. Following the guidelines from this book and a few personal tweaks I was able to start traveling immediately without much money. I am cheapskate but I want to travel in comfort. This book taught me the beginnings of how to get that done!” – Lothaire
“Lots of truly useful information and we’ll worth a read. Most of the tips are oriented more for the traveler than the tourist, an important distinction. I’ve used quite a few of these techniques over the years and can verify they work and in many ways (if not most) enhance the traveler’s experience rather than hinder it. If I was new to travel, is read it at least twice, then keep a copy on my Kindle or smartphone for reference on the road.” – Anne
“This book gave me loads of INVALUABLE info for my upcoming trip to Europe! Little things that I never would have thought about otherwise. Matt gives the reader tidbits about every possible thing one could think of, and then you can expand your research from there, on the subjects you deem important for your personal journey. If you are a first time backpacker, you must read this book. I paid something like 13 bucks for it. As a very budget conscious traveler, It is worth its weight in gold!” – Heather
“Got more out of it than I ever expected! Great stuff! Worth your money, big time!” – Hannah
“I learned so much from this book. It is/was very helpful in planning my trip to Europe this summer and gave me some good tips on how to survive while in Europe. I would recommend this book to any traveler.” – Aimee
Whether a two week, two month, or two year trip, we all want to stretch our money further. We want to find ways to travel longer and more often. My book will show you how to go anywhere you want without breaking the bank. I will show you the tips that have kept me traveling to where I want, when I want. No matter how long you want to travel for, now you can.
Grand Egyptian Museum Granted Three ISO Certificates Reflecting Its Excellence
Another reason to be proud of our Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), as if we needed more reasons!
Major General Atef Moftah, General Supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), received on behalf of the museum two ISO certificates: a certificate of accreditation of international standards for environmental management systems (ISO 14001: 2015) and certification of the international standard specifications for the quality management systems (ISO9001: 2015).
Engineer Mohamed Habib, General Manager of OSS Middle East and Dr. Tarek Rizk, consultant of OSS Middle East and witnessed by Dr. Hussein Kamal, were the ones to present the certificated in the presence of General Director of the GEM Conservation Center, Dr. Eissa Zidan, Director of Executive Affairs of GEM Conservation and Transportation, and Dr. Elshimaa Eid, Head of Health and Safety at GEM.
This brings the total of certificated that the museum has been awarded to three, as the museum obtained the ISO certificate for occupational safety and health last September.
It’s also worth mentioning that this makes the GEM the only museum regionally and internationally to obtain three ISO certificates in less than 60 days!
These certificates resemble the positive impact that the museum have on the area and its surroundings, it also positions the museum as a sustainable and environmental museum.
Diving & Scuba Activities to Resume in Parts of South Sinai
As of December, diving and scuba activities for yachts on cruises will resume in six nature reserve diving sites in South Sinai, according to a statement made by Egypt’s Ministry of Environment.
The diving sites include: the Temple, North Laguna, South Laguna, White Island, Electricity, and Map.
The decision by Egypt’s Environmental Affairs Agency follows the cessation of diving activities that lasted for nine months, in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Egypt’s health ministry announced Wednesday that South Sinai, Minya, Suez and Ismailia have recently seen a drop in infection rates, unlike Cairo and Alexandria.
According to the statement, “These sites were chosen after carrying out a number of field studies and scientific surveys, and after ensuring that they are distinguished by all the appropriate environmental requirements for diving sites to achieve the enjoyment of those involved in diving activities,” quoting Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad.
43 Floating Hotels & Nile Cruises Obtain Health and Safety Certificates
So far, a total number of 43 floating hotels and Nile Cruise ships have obtained the government mandated health and safety certificates.
These hotels and ships have started the resumption of their trips in October and ever since, they have been obtaining the certificates that are approved by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Ministry of Health and Population and the Egyptian Hotels Association (EHA).
According to a statement from the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, these floating hotels obtained the certificates for meeting the health and safety requirements set out by the Egyptian government and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The ministry’s inspection committees approved 26 floating hotels between Luxor and Aswan last week, including: Nile Dolphin Hotels; Solaris 1; Premium; Amo Boat; Abercrombie 2; Zaina; Medea; La Travita; Tosca; Beau Rivage 1; Château Lafayette; Esmeralda; Champollion 2; Abercrombie Nile Adventure; Crown Jewels; Royal; Regency Louvain; Miss World; Nile Plaza; Nile Shams; Emilio; Miss Beau Rivage 2; Nile Marquis; Blue Shadow; and Farah. In addition to these, the Nile Vision and River Boats in Cairo also received ministry approval to resume their trips.
The inspection committees will continue looking at the rest of Egypt’s floating hotels, the ones that submitted applications for the certificate.
