So, how to travel the world as a student… This is a topic I could go on about until the cows come home. Since I’ve got a heckuva lot to get through, let’s just jump straight into it! The most blatantly obvious way to afford to travel as a student, behind relying on the BoD (Bank of Dad), is to just save money. Yes, it…
