12 months from now you could be quitting your job and starting your journey around the world.
In the next five minutes, I'm going to show you how to do it.
It starts six years ago.
Back then, I had a desk job, just like you.
I had been dreaming about travelling the world, just like you.
But every day I seemed to be sitting at the same desk, in the same shirt and tie, wondering how to make it happen.
Honestly, I was tired.
Sometimes my friends and family would ask me, “How’s work?” and I would always reply politely, “Yeah, it’s pretty good.”
But my half smile wasn’t fooling anybody.
Every morning when the alarm clock went off I knew something wasn’t right.
I felt trapped.
I wanted to quit this job I didn’t care about, drop everything and set off to create adventures.
These were my twenties! Weren’t these supposed to be the best years of my life?
I wanted to go. I wanted to walk the winding alleys of Istanbul, eat through the markets of Bangkok, hear the singing in the streets of Africa, hunt for the Northern Lights, drink sangria in Spain, eat endless bowls of ramen in Japan, swim in the crystal clear oceans of Zanzibar.
I want to go somewhere. Anywhere.
But how would I pay for it? Would I be safe? It all seemed so impossible.
Cubicle days, 2011
Finally, in 2011, I decided I had to do something.
I don’t know what pushed me over the edge – I guess I’d just had enough. Amid the naysaying of my friends, my girlfriend, my parents and my boss, I quit my job, packed my bags, and took off to see the world.
I landed on the other side of the world with a nice little savings account and a backpack full of clothes.
That was it.
I didn’t take a phone, a laptop.
Not even a camera.
I had no idea how to find a cheap flight, a cheap bed, get travel insurance, make friends, find things to do or create the travel memories I had dreamed about all of those years.
I’m not exaggerating when I say: I had absolutely no idea what I was doing.
It didn’t matter.
I was determined to see it all. And you know what?
I did it.
I walked the winding alleys of Istanbul. I ate through the crazy markets of Bangkok. I sang in the streets of Kenya. I found the Northern Lights. I ate all the famous bowls of ramen in Japan. I guzzled jugs of sangria in Spain. I swam in the sparkling oceans of Zanzibar.
I did all the things I’d dreamed of in that office cubicle, and it was incredible.
I wouldn’t give those memories back for anything in the world.
Hiking through Norway, 2016
It wasn’t easy.
Over my first two years of travel, there were a lot of challenges. Emotional challenges. Physical challenges. Spiritual challenges.
But the biggest challenge was the financial challenge.
I ran out of money. Quick.
Knowing what I know today, my savings should have lasted me through at least five years of full time travel. I blew through it in two.
I can’t say I have any regrets, because even my mistakes made my journey special.
But when I look back at all the extra countries I could have visited, friendships I could have made, places I could have seen, the tens of thousands of dollars I could have saved, I can’t help but feel a little silly.
Teaching in Tanzania, 2012
There’s a silver lining.
Today, I’ve been on the road for over six years, and in that time I’ve learned a few things.
As someone who lives and breathes budget travel, I can honestly say I’ve done it all. Between setting foot on every continent in the world, I’ve hitch hiked thousands of kilometres, hunted through dumpsters for food, slept on floors and couches and beaches, stayed in mud huts in the most remote villages and mansions in the nicest cities.
Through these experiences, I’ve learned how travel works.
I’ve learned that in today’s world, anyone can travel the world on $30-$40 per day.
You can see all the sights, eat all the amazing food, meet the incredible people of the world, and still sleep safe and comfortable each night.
$30 per day. That’s $11,000 per year. And I know it can be done.
How do I know?
Because I’ve done it.
Sahara Desert, 2016
After remembering how little I knew when I started this journey, I decided it was up to me to offer people a resource.
Something to help and inspire those would-be adventurers out there; people like me and you, who wanted to see the world, but had no idea where to start.
What if I could provide you a resource that would help you realise your travel dreams?
Show you that you don’t need buckets of money to see this incredible world?
Give you the support you need so you can get your questions answered and travel the world with confidence?
So that’s what I did.

What others are saying:
"hooked from the first chapter"
"Being an avid reader of Brendan's blog, I expected this guide to be a compilation of the tips and advice I had read from him before. I was ecstatic to see that most of the content was not only fresh, but so cleverly and concisely organized. I was completely hooked from the first chapter... Brendan spoke as if he were a best friend, grabbing my shoulders while looking into my eyes convincing me that "you CAN do this!" It was exactly what I needed to take the leap and book that flight. Particularly useful were the sections regarding visas, banking/money exchanging and hammering into my head the mindset of a frugal and smart traveller- that I can travel for much longer by choosing the right destinations and using his tips for living like a local. I can't thank him enough for all his work and the experience he has passed on."
"Full of practical advice"
"Just brilliant. The guide is full of practical pointers for the would be traveler. Brendan's section on how to find cheap flights is worth the price alone. Honestly, I enjoyed this better than Rolf Pott's "Vagabonding", which had been my bible up until now! Whether you're a long term global wanderer or short term holidaymaker, you don't want to go past this resource."
THE EXPAT CHAT PODCAST
"Eye opening. Worth every penny."
EPIC TRAVEL GUIDE
"Triple Your Travel was really eye-opening and worth every penny. It encompasses every aspect of travel planning, and details a lot of things that most travel blogs gloss over. The chapter on finding cheap flights had a lot of cool tips and hacks that I've never seen before and the section on the different travel seasons was so helpful. Personally I liked the sample itinerary on Thailand the most - it's the most concrete "how to" section and showed the cost of everything which was really useful. It's the perfect guide to go back and forth to when you're dead set on making your adventure happen."
"One of a kind"
"There may only be a few people who have the experience Brendan does - but the ability to write it so well and so clearly, in such an easy-to-read manner makes this one-of-a-kind and there probably isn't anything else quite like it out there. I think it will particularly appeal to the younger, hi-tech-savvy generation who go on longer travels, but it contains invaluable advice and information for all ages and all kinds of travellers. I really liked the advice about travelling off-season, information on finding your own apartment, and how to find the travel style that suits you - such wise advice and very helpful. When I travel they're usually month-long independent trips (book an apartment, and take my computer to write and hang out in coffee shops) and I will be surely referring to this guide again each time I travel. I really think it could become one of the must-have travel books out there!"
"an invaluable resource"
"This is an invaluable resource for any first-time solo traveller. Even as someone who has traveled solo before I found this guide to be extremely helpful in planning for an upcoming solo travel adventure. Unlike most guides you'll find on the net it's not padded out with fluff or affiliate links, it's succinct and to the point without skipping over any of the important details. I have the guide saved online and will no doubt refer to it whilst on the road. I should add I have also emailed Brendan a couple of times with questions since my purchase and both times he has got back to me within 48 hours with a genuine attempt to answer my questions. I definitely owe him a beer if and when our paths cross on the road!"
Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Triple Your Travel better than other travel guides out there?
Many guides only focus on one aspect of budget travel, such as how to prepare for a trip, how to find cheap and free accommodation or how to find cheap flights. Triple Your Travel is a complete resource, and covers absolutely everything you need to know to successfully travel the world on a budget.
As a purchaser, you also have direct email access to me to ask any questions, queries, or to simply bounce ideas off as you plan and enjoy your travels.

Let’s make your adventure happen
Here’s the question you’re probably asking yourself right now:
Do I really need this?
The answer is no, you don’t. You could just jump on the plane and do it alone like I did. You might blow through several thousand dollars in the process, but you’ll get there.
You could also buy a new Lonely Planet Guide for every country you visit, but that will cost you hundreds and will probably keep you very closely tacked to the tourist trail. But again, you’ll get there.
You could also just keep reading blogs, Tripadvisor, travel books and guides, and those could work for you too.
But I want you to be very honest with yourself: Have you been talking about travelling the world for years?
Adding things to your bucket list with every new Buzzfeed article?
Constantly feel pangs of envy every time someone uploads a new travel photo on Instagram?
And you’re still sitting at your cubicle every day?
Let me give you the hard truth: You don’t have forever. You need to do something. Today.
I want to help you make your adventure happen. You don’t need to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on travel courses or guides and you don’t need to spend endless hours browsing through the internet looking at travel tips. I have spent six years travelling the world, and spent hundreds of hours creating the ultimate resource for you.
And you know what the best part is? I was once in the exact same place as you – sitting in a cubicle, dreaming of travelling the world. And I travelled to every corner of the globe, learning from the best travellers in the world, and all that information is now compiled in this resource, for you.
I’ve seen what this journey looks like. Let me take the best of what I know, help you create the trip you’ve been dreaming of, give you the support you need, and help you stop putting your travel dreams off until tomorrow.
I can show you how how to enter the weird and wonderful world of travel, starting today. Anywhere, on any budget.
And not only that, I can guarantee it.
Remember – with Triple Your Travel, I take on all the risk. If you read it and don’t love it, for any reason at all, I’ll send you 100% of your money back. No questions asked.
So make something happen today. If you’re ready to see the world, you have a risk-free chance to get started. All you gotta do is take the first step.
