When You Learn, Teach. When You Get, Give. – Maya Angelou
Since my first trip abroad to Vietnam when I was 20, I’ve been learning everything about traveling one flight at time. Tips, tricks, hacks, mistakes. They’re all a part of it. Most I learned from experiencing, some I learned from experts and those who came before me. And some from my fellow travelers. I learned how to travel for cheap. And then cheaper. I learned how to save time planning. Or not plan at all.
