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
Hello, like you said, after seeing this video i though "Wow, I wish i could travel like that". For me this conference is one of the most interesting of TEDx. What's better to travel with almost no money ? Really, you're inspiring me to make my own opinion of couchsurfing, go live an incredible adventure and meet people. That's seems to be so fun ! Be independant and just go out of our boring lifestyle...! I have no words, now I just wanna go and never comeback !
But how you were allowed to visit countries after countries with no visa? Because to get an approval of Visa to visit countries like Australia is not an easy or short process.
Of course you didn't cover the hardest parts of traveling the bordered world we live in today.
Realized tonight how cheap travel can be, even when you are looking for air fairs, hotels.
This video showed me how you can make travel VERY cheap. Cheaper than I was imagining.
Now I’m debating. Do I wanna be boojie n posh, or north face/REI af
I'm so fan of Tomislav ! A man wtih a normal life who sees his life turning upside down and decides to travel to different countries. I wish been like him ! To travel around the world without money, without knowing where to sleep ! If only my life was like hers, as much epic...
I totally diagree with your point of view. "You don't have to be brave", yes but no. You may be courageous to go in a foreign country without an accomodation where you can sleep. I'm pretty sure you can't get out of you comfort zone, so give up ( I know, I'm pessimistic).
I like ur journey experience but you are from developed country so no more restrictions but some developing and under developing countries guys can not think about travel to there it's more expensive for them
U just blown me away...far far from my home..ur life experiences are thrilling bro... one thing I think all the hitchhikers got for sure, an awesome attitude for experiencing so much places, people, events, landscapes which keep them alive everyday till the last breath of their life 💓💕
Travel without money? Go to Afghanistan and become a Taliban. You will visit a few countries in the middle east then probably you will travel to the US after refueling in Europe, and then to Cuba.
note: Hi Echelon guys, i hope you are all doing great!
I am an expat in a very poor country doing development work. Been here for years. I have seen my share of adventure tourists who are so humbled by the hospitality they experience with local people and those tourists are so touched by the locals' generosity and (semming) joy of life. The tourist comes from a rich country, takes off and lives on the culturally mandatory hospitality of locals. Of course they share, of course they are welcoming. But they pay the price! The tourist leaves, happy and touched. The locals stay, food gone. Their share? Knowing they might make it to a photo presentation somewhere else in the world, at least their picture... Dont get me wrong, travelling is great and i am a couch surf host too, i am just saying please do not exploit the local (poor) community to make your dreams come true
Sir, you're an inspirational. this video inspired me so much.. wish I could travel like you oneday but I have no talent and no money at all.
Yeah, I think I could hardly manage to live in any place and travel to any places by following your tips. But problem is there will not be enough money for VISA for different countries when you are about to move on to next country. Continues travelling and doing some volunteer works in exchange food, by doing that you can't earn enough money for visa I guess. for that need to have enough money by yourself in startle itself and in my case I have nothing at all.
And I'm still confused about the visa thing. On a continues travelling, when you're still in current country how can you apply visa for the next country? Don't you have to go back to your own country to apply for next country's visa?
i know its possible to do this, but to be honest I can't even walk my dog at my own apartment without getting harassed by someone, so it's pretty daunting. LADIES, you can do it, but be very smart about it and i'd say don't be alone.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
