/// ASK: What’s The Cost of Living For a Vagabonding Lifestyle?
The way you travel the world as a way of life has inspired me and now that my consulting business allows me to work anywhere without an office, I want to follow in your footsteps…So, can you answer, at least on a general scale, what the cost of living for you is while vagabonding?-Alexis A.
Short Answer : The cost of maintaining my vagabonding world travel way of living is about $20,000 USD / 18,500 Euros a year.
That includes all operational costs of my current lifestyle; accommodations, food, transportation (including flights), entertainment, clothing, gear, insurance and anything else that I need to function.
That’s right, my cost of living is LESS as a nomadic world traveler. It may seem impossible but this is typical for many, if not most lifestyle travelers.
Contractual Housing Rent
Cable TV Service
Contractual Cellular Service
Credit Card Debt
The cost of living as a modern vagabond will obviously fluctuate depending on the location. Europe and Australia will be more than most parts of the world whereas South East Asia will be less than the rest.
But the fact remains, a life of travel, at least to me, costs less than a life at “home”.
