Shared Living = New Money for Travel

One of the circular benefits of living with a roommate – which does mean less alone time for you – is that you will (usually) free yourself up to spend more time alone, if you wish, because you’ll have at your disposal the equivalent of half a month’s rent/mortgage plus utilities to spend on something other than rent or mortgage or utilities. Something that could take you out of the house for a time just for you, doing just what you want. That could mean travel – to favorite places, or places you’ve never been, or doing things you’ve never done. You might now be able to consider escapes you’ve always longed for but could not afford: an occasional week-long writing retreat, or a health & wellness spa experience, or a hiking adventure, or an itinerary in a country you’ve never before seen. Sharing a home can mean more alone time, of the highest quality.

Think of these travel possibilities, for example – taken from an article on six affordable trips featured in

Cambodia’s Angkor Wat – a UNESCO World Heritage site – you can eat for $15 to $20 a day and get lodging for $30 to $150

Morocco – $25 to $50 per day for food; $100 to $200 per night for lodging

Machu Picchu –  $25 to $50 per day for food; $75 to $150 per night for lodging

The full article in Grandparents gives three more great suggestions, along with a host of tips for saving money and getting around safely.
