How to Save Money for your Trip to Cambridge, UK

Cambridge, UK

Cambridge is a hugely popular destination for tourists, the streets are always flooded with visitors snapping their best shot of the stunning University buildings, Harry Potter-esque winding streets and river laden with punts. It’s not hard to see why Cambridge is such a popular city, it has an unbeatable charm and authenticity that draws you in one red telephone box at a time. Ok, it’s my hometown, I might be a little biased but that does also put me in a good position to share my top tips for visiting the city as well as how to save money on your visit!

Use the buses

It might be an obvious one but taxis in Cambridge can be extortionate, trust me! Especially in the evening where the price appears to creep up pretty fast. The buses are actually quite simple to use and the drivers are usually helpful if you need a little direction. I would also recommend jumping on the bus for the slightly out-of-town sites such as the American Cemetery and Botanical Gardens, which by the way are well worth a visit!

Freelance Write Your Way Around The World

BeachBeing a digital nomad seems to be a fabulous way to live, but the reality is a touch less glamorous (and a lot more hard work) than people imagine. I threw myself in the deep end by quitting my corporate job and showing up in Vietnam a couple of months ago with no steady stream of income and almost no savings. But here I am, building my blog for motorcyclist and traveler community; writing for pay from a beach chair in Bai Xep, a small fishing village on the coast of Vietnam. Every morning I put in about two hours of work.  Then, I get the rest of the day to live…snorkeling, riding my motorcycle along the back roads of Vietnam, lying on the beach, or scoping out some historical pagodas. Here are some of the things I’ve figured out in the past few months that have helped me make a living off of my freelance writing.

1. You don’t need a lot of money to travel

Chose your first few countries wisely and you can start to build up a client base for your writing while you are living in some very cheap destinations. South East Asia is the obvious hotspot – the people are friendly, the Wi-Fi is ubiquitous, the food is delicious, and the scenery is incredible.

Below are a few ways you can get started on setting a reasonable goal amount for your campaign and get the most out of your fundraising.

Consider your network

Your core group of family and friends are going to be the initial funders of your campaign. Can they help you hit at least 30% of your goal amount? By sharing your campaign on social media and through emails you will be able to reach your core group of friends and family. These people will be the ones helping you raise most of the funds necessary to travel. Your core group of family and friends may also be able to help you reach a larger audience if they share it on their own pages, which is how campaigns go viral! Continue reading
