This is my friend and favorite travel buddy, Ruth. Unlike me, Ruth doesn’t work remotely. She is a nurse. She’s from Scotland and lives in New Zealand (here she is visiting Hobbiton). In the last year, she’s managed to visit Scotland, Ireland and England. She also backpacked for a month around Fiji and spent seven weeks exploring Malaysia and Thailand.
This week she heads off again on a six-week trip back to the United Kingdom followed by the Canary Islands, Iceland (with me!!), Montreal, Ottawa, and Detroit.
She often gets asked, "How can you afford this!?" And I know a lot of you wish you could afford to travel more so I asked her to share her secrets on the blog. Check it out at herbagswerepacked.com/travelmore (link in bio)
