Whenever I was starting to plan my first big adventures, one of my biggest questions was, how do people pay for these experiences? What I've learned is that there's no real secret out there. It's a lot of grinding, budgeting, side gigs, sacrifice, asking, etc. The process of funding your adventure is honestly an entirely separate and equally difficult adventure. For me, the preparation and planning was half the excitement and joy of adventures, and often was a much longer experience than the trip itself.
This won't be a super organized or hugely insightful episode, just more of my thoughts and experiences on the subject.
I hope you enjoy and I hope you share your adventure-funding tips and tricks with us!
