I have always wanted to travel but have no idea how to see other countries without spending tons of money? Has anyone ever travelled while being frugal? Thanks

    The trip over to the other countries is what will cost you the most-

    the flight, cruise, etc.



    Aside from that, you can save money by buying food at grocers wherever

    you are, knowing the language is a perk for that, as well as by staying

    in smaller out of the way places- hostels are great for this, as they

    are often dirt cheap. The upside- saved money. The downside- sharing a

    room with 1 or 2 (or more) strangers.

    I have traveled both domestically and internationally,

    always while on a budget. The best tip I can offer you

    is to utilize youth hostels. They aren't just for

    young people, and in fact many of them have "family

    rooms" which are private. There are ones right on the

    beach, ones situated in an old lighthouse, a cabin in

    the woods, all sorts of locations and types of

    buildings. You also meet people from all over the

    world, even if you're in the U.S.. I would stick with

    ones registered with Hostelling International. Here is

    the website for hostels in the U.S.:

    Happy Travels,

    Suzanne



    P.S. Not sure how old you are, but Contikki Tours

    (http://contikkitours.com/) offers great trips to all

    sorts of foreign countries, for less than a

    traditional tour company. It is intended for people

    18-35, but when I went, most people seemed to be 18-25

    or so and single. Very fast-paced, but a whole lot of

    fun!

    Hi Lynne:



    I do it every year with my family. Your best bet is to do an

    All-Inclusive hotel like, RIU,Beaches, etc. We just got back from a

    week in the Dominican Republic and for $3000 for (2) adults & (1) 15

    yr old, airfare, basic room , transportation to and from the hotel and

    all the food and drinks. You don't realize how much the cost of food

    is when you start paying here and there. At an all inclusive hotel,

    you can eat and drink all day long. They also include activities on

    the property, snorkeling, etc.



    I have done Beaches and they are a little expensive, but worth it! I

    also recently did RIU resort and I would definately go back to any

    RIU, they are very clean, friendly, and the food is good.



    Hope this helps a little. If you have any more questions, please let

    me know.



    P.S. most all countries in the Caribbean do speak english!!
