How to travel the world with almost no money | Tomislav Perko | TEDxTUHH



Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse – lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to.

Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way.

Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website:

  1. 16:30 Really like the end of this talk when he talks about the not-so-rosy part of traveling long-term. Even if you keep on seeing all the wonders the world has to offer, it won't make you feel fulfilled all the time. You might find your happiness being mostly affected with the people around you, so it's good to invest in those relationships that matter to you:)
