Matt Gross known as the frugal traveler for the new york times traveled around the world in 90 days with only two rules lodging for less then 100 and food cost at 40. I was hoping to read some tips for traveling in Asia but Gross focused most of his travels in western and eastern europe and manages to meet his budget by staying in small towns and/or getting to sleep for free at someone’s house. His articles are not as useful as i thought they would be, but i really like the user comments to his articles giving him suggestions for his travels. Alot of the suggestions are useful because its local ‘insider’ knowledge. I’m hoping to do the same with this blog.
