Ms. Nina Fuentes from

The third talk is the one I’ve been waiting for, Ms. Nina Fuentes. I’m a follower of her blog since 2011. I’m a fan of DIY Travel and her itinerary and tips help me to organize my own DIY travel with my friends. Anyway she discussed with us about wandering on a budget. But first, she introduces herself. She starts travelling on 2005. She tells her stories how she travels on Greece, Morocco and other Asian countries like Japan and Thailand. She gave us pointers how to fund our wanderlust. 
She gave us advice to how to save our travel fund by cutting our daily expenses. If you are a coffee lover, spending P 100 buying a coffee a day or 4 times a week do the math means you spend around P 1600 for a month. She also told us the 52 week challenge. If you save P 50 a week and double it on the other week and so on, you can save around P 70,000 a year. 

How to fund your wanderlust

She’s been to Greece and Morocco, but how she funds her travel? She gave us tips.
 She share to us that she funds her travel by working and earning money doing online jobs. Be alert on seat sales by subscribing to different airline, skyscanner and airbnb. Travel with group to cut down expenses.
