Carrot and ginger soup is so yummy but it takes it to the next level when you add spiced roasted chick peas!

A question I get asked all the time is “how do you afford to travel so much?” and “how do you travel on a small budget” so today I want to give you all of the advice I can possibly think of to help you to understand how I manage it! I’ve travelled to many countries in my life but in the last few years I’ve experienced first hand being a long-term backpacker, I’ve worked on farms lived in hostels for months on ends and lived in my car along the way.
