The joy of new experience is the most wonderful thing about world travel — and new experiences are free. Couch Surfing and WWOOF are two phenomenal online networks that help travelers connect with local hosts.
Things like food and shelter are much cheaper once you get outside the United States.
If you have a skill, such as cooking, animal husbandry, massage, musical ability, or basic carpentry, you can barter for free food and accommodation as you travel the world.
Universally appreciated skills like cooking are best, though niche skills that are in high demand, like website design, are also useful.
They want you to choose a world travel experience the same way you would choose a new jacket at the mall. The tourism industry doesn’t want me to reveal the simple secrets of free travel, but I’m going to share them with you anyway. Climb to the top of a hill and watch the sun set over the ocean. Indeed, as long as you believe that time is money, you will spend money all the time. You don’t need to worry about paying the bills, because there are no bills to pay. Many people are willing to open their homes to travelers.
It can be scary to travel the world with nothing more than optimism and good-will, but personal freedom begins with a leap of faith. You will explore new places, meet new people, try new foods, and learn things about the world — and yourself — that you never imagined were possible. The simple joy of being in a new place is just a matter of…wait for it…going someplace new. The modern American economy is built on the false premise that people need to buy new goods and services all the time. People need fresh air, healthy food, clean water, exercise, creative stimulation, companionship, self-esteem, and a safe place to sleep. Chip in with a few chores, and they will give you a free meal, too.
Native English speakers can often travel for free by teaching language classes in each destination they visit.

Couch Surfing members are willing to give travelers a place to sleep for a night or two.
WWOOF connects travelers with organic farmers who want to trade room and board for an extra hand.
Many members of both Couch Surfing and WWOOF are seeking an alternative to high-impact consumer culture.
The idea that travel is expensive and difficult is bullshit peddled by tour companies, hotel chains, and corporate media. See #5 below for ways to obtain food and shelter for free. Instead of buying a plane ticket, catch a ride out West, or remodel an old sailboat, or just hop on your bike and ride away from town. You don’t need an oven, a washer-dryer, electricity, cable TV, a gym membership, a sofa and loveseat, or a closet full of clothes.
The tourism industry wants you to buy cruise packages and stay at all-inclusive resorts. If you live in New York and want to take a 2-week vacation to Africa, it will be very difficult (though not impossible, see #8) to travel for free. The slower you travel, the less money you will spend. You don’t need a suit and tie to wear to your job because you don’t need a job.
Although it’s possible to travel for free in a big city, it’s damn difficult.
