Matt Kepnes has spent years traveling the world on the cheap. For the past 5 or so he's been blogging about it under the name Nomadic Matt, sharing his secrets and tips with other wannabe explorers on a budget. So now Kepnes is the proud owner of a wildly successful website, plus a bestselling book How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, plus the bestselling book's latest follow-up, How to Travel the World on $50 a Day: Revised. In other words, Nomadic Matt can now afford to travel more like a baller than a nomad. I wonder which he's going with these days.
How to Travel the World on $50 a Day: Revised treats the idea that extensive travel is too expensive for the average person as a myth of Loch Ness Monster proportions. The book points out that the media constantly presents and touts expensive hotels, resorts, cruises, and packages because that's what makes them money. On $50 a day, Kepnes insists anyone can turn that system on its head and score free flights and hotel rooms, enjoy alternative accommodations, and gain comped access to attractions.
Outside the spendy mainstream, globetrotters armed with their daily $50 might even stumble upon Nessie.
