Traveling is one of the things worth saving money for. It doesn't matter if you love chilling on the beach, exploring picturesque streets of ancient cities or going up to the mountains. Going on a trip to a strange place can be challenging for students, especially money wise. Still, there are so many students traveling all over the world trouble free. How do they do that?
