I Quit My Studies At The Age Of 18 And Traveled To 97 Countries Since Then

Bored from studies I quit everything when I was 18-years-old and started traveling around the world. Now I’m 27 and have visited 97 countries, From Nigeria in Africa to North Korea in Asia.

I always travel on a low budget and I never use guidebooks. Here are some of the hidden beauties around the world.

You have never mentioned where you get the money to travel . At 18 you could not have worked a long time before starting out.

Traveling the world IS an education. I do have to say, though that traveling the way you do in most parts of the world is much easier for a male than a female.
