How to travel the world with almost no money | Tomislav Perko | TEDxTUHH

Оценок: 140042 | Просмотров: 5132459
Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse - lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to. Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way. Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website: http://tomislavperko.com/en/. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

i'm sad that being a woman stops me from doing all this. hitchhiking is not even an option if you're female.

Interesting how almost everyone here finds their own magical excuse to not travel. Whether it is fairly reasonable (My passport is bad) to simply ridiculous (I'm an introvert). You're all missing his point
Eugen Golubic (14 дней назад)
Well, he is from Croatia. The best way to travel for us is without money because we don't have any.

Hands down, one of the best Ted talks i've seen about budget traveling, inspiring and entertaining. I agree on the point of balance and it really resonate with how I feel about this lifestyle.
Jessica Sanchez (16 дней назад)
That's all well and good but truth is, hitchhiking is SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS for women.
I AM INFINITE (17 дней назад)
Flawless presentation. I love the fact that he mentions it may not be for everyone. Yes, he is very persuasive in regards to the reasons why people should travel, but he also implicates that there are many downsides to be aware of such as hunger, sickness and even post travel depression. Overall, great information for anyone who is thinking about backpacking. Tomislav, you are on point with this one!
Tracy Frantz (18 дней назад)
I totally identify with some of the points made here. It's very lonely but once you realise why you're where you are then it becomes somewhat rewarding in a way.

dj Delazion (24 дня назад)
its definitely possible to travel on a shoestring... however it really depends on your DISCIPLINE too.. Especially for those of us from more rich countries where we grew up with everything, perhaps in Croatia he learned from an early age to be frugal. its important to learn NOT to over spend when traveling, its important to learn some quick maths so you can calculate the exchange rates quickly and NOT get ripped off. its also important to have discipline, maybe you will be traveling with people who have money and want to stay in nice hotels or go our drinking to clubs every night... The style of traveling he did is not the same,,,,, what he is advocating its a different road less traveled compared to the gap year students backpacking on their student loans... but still dont let that dissuade you, learn discipline and enjoy the simpler things...

For people saying women should travel with a male companion thats just such a great solution!! So this world is unsafe for women due to males animalistic mindset and the solution is to become dependent on them. Thats equallity and democracy. Such great idea, just unbelievable!
First Last (19 дней назад)
umm... not all men have animalistic mindsets and even if they did there would be nothing we could do about it, being naturally more agressive is part of their biology. Also, do you have a better solution for women? Even if a woman learns self defense there's still a good chance that an average man can just overpower her with raw strength. Equality? Do you suggest that every woman should take testosterone and steroids just so we can be "equal"? How does democracy play into this? (ps not trying to be rude I just can't make any sense of what you said)

Davegetaway (1 месяц назад)
As a traveller I can say that this is totally true!!! You don t need money you just need to go out there and experience and stop believing that conventional things are the only way to live a life. That s what other people tell us because they are afraid to do what we do

I think one of the most important thing is to know how to behave with different people in different places, because the way you behave in one place can be absolutely inappropriate in another one. Also you have to know the places to never go to. People might not to kill you somewhere, but might involve you in the actions that are difficult to get out.

Adelaida H. Buteler (1 месяц назад)
I traveled for almost 4 years, doing all that he said. I did hitchicking so many times, i worked as volunteer in more than 15 hostels . I really think that travel is more control your mind than anything else. You have to trust that everything is going to work out. And i'm completely agree about that famous crisis when you go back home. When you feel that you dont belong to any place. And all your friends are around the world. When you came out of the bubble is not easy to go back. But in the end you know that you need to be part of something. As he said, you have to find the balance between have a home and dont stop exploring.

What does '' Almost no money'' means, exactly? For those who say that hitchhiking is dangerous... I must tell you guys.. Everything is dangerous. Everybody has to sacrifice something. You cannot have it cheap and safe in the same time (but if you do, please share ). Plus you know i can just come and kill you at home too😉➕

i have untreatable major depression, severe ptsd, anhedonia, etc for 10 years. ive been eating like 9 pills a day for 3 years. ive lost all my friends and family. i recently found out that i can live a life that maybe has meaning, by volunteering work in social and charity work, through sites like wwoofing, workaway, helpx , where accomodation and food is provided. i think i might want to live out my entire life volunteering and doing charity work until the day my body is unable to. i really need to find out if this is the cure i have been looking for for 10 years. i would like to see even a candle, in this dark place i still cant escape from. i just need about $1,000 - $3,000 worth of gear though. i dont even have hiking boots. heck, i don't even have a backpack. and some of these volunteer sites expect you to camp out on site. my illness has taken everything away from me, and left my bank account at near $0, while I get food stamps from the government, and am unable to secure a job, nor hold on to one. do you think anyone would help me if i set up a gofundme or something along those lines? im not american though. may peace be upon us all. <3

In India you have to show your bank statements to even apply for travel visa and then you have to buy travel insurance and air ticket to apply for visa. If its not there they won't accept the application also. LOL!!! Only easy for people who are either rich or born in Europe, US, UK, Canada, etc... You are even granted visa on arrival for so many countries.

It wanted him so bad to stop moving so his head would be between the E and D letter (some OCD maybe?) But amazing Ted Talk. Love his slight humor and all the tipps he gave are so helpful for someone who alsways wanted to move on in his/her life but is too fearful (yeah, because maybe someone could you). LOVE IT !!
Christian (2 месяца назад)
There is a reason why everyone lives in his own safe house, because we don't know everyone. If we stay and hitchhike at some stranger, the chances are pretty high they are up to no good. Yes the media makes things worse than it is, but there is always a true side behind it. Always have a backup and be careful of people you don't know.

I really like your story. Your life seems to be an adventure. I love to travel but can't because of some personal commitment but i have tried couchsurfing, and it was an eye opener for me. I came across another concept called work for accommodation on Hippohelp. Have you tried it?
