So I had been asked many times to talk about how I manage to travel so much without spending so much money. The above video was made to address that and help with traveling on a budget, but if it isn’t sufficient you could leave a comment or contact me for specific information,
I also wanted to add that before I went to school in Serbia, most of my trips were sponsored by government (ministry or parastatal), some company (through the NGO I was under) or family, as I mostly only attended conferences before my masters (Oh and we would do publicity in return). Very few holiday trips.
Getting to Europe for my masters I had some savings from work, but then also I would braid hair or make clothes, added to what the scholarship was giving me every month (like 30k), sometimes my friends would split my ticket or some family member/friends would just remember me suddenly and send me small pocket money (never really more 50k Naira though), once Bae paid, and yeah no sugar daddy’s or anything like that (fortunately or unfortunately). So, it’s not like I’ve ever really had so much money at a time, I just find a way to make the most of the little I have, it did really help that I was already in Europe.
I hope that covers most of it though.
Ps: My roomie used to sometimes give me an advance on the scholarship stipend, because my body sometimes itches me to travel, and can’t wait to gather everything, then would pay her back as I get my stipends. (She was also on a scholarship from Nigeria, so she got a lot more money than me, that only had the Serbian scholarship).
