Jul 08, 2020, 07:00 AM

Do you consider yourself to be a budget traveler? There’s an entire industry built around the idea of budget travel, and I get why - travel is expensive. In this episode, we're joined by Kate McCully and Danielle Desire in discussing all things budget travel. How does mooching happen? How can we travel cheaply and also give back to the communities we visit? How can you make saving for travel realistic? We discuss how budget travel is done, but also, what happens when budget travel goes too far. Because, spoiler alert, budget travel can sometimes do damage, but rest assured there are ways to get it right!
