Whether you are looking to save a little money or just want to be creative, this is the place for you.

Hi! I did a similar sort of trip 2005-2006 after graduating undergrad. I planned to be gone for a year, but ran out of money (and energy) at 10 1/2 months. It was quite an adventure, and your hub was a pleasant reminder of all the wonderful experiences I had – especially your pictures of New Zealand. They are fantastic! I’ve been to somewhere around 30 countries and NZ is still my happy place. Thanks for sharing!
