First of all, I'm currently a full-time student, I got loads of semester breaks, holidays and days off though which allows me to travel that much. As a globetrotter with heart and soul I use every free day I have to see something new, something more exciting than my apartment. I have grown up in Germany so I don't really feel the need to explore my home country that much. After my graduation in 2010 I lived in New York City for over two years which I could only afford because I lived with a hostfamily for whom I worked.
Secondly, what about now? I am very fortunate to have family on Mallorca, an incredibly beautiful Spanish island, where I spent my entire past summer before I started my first semester. I made loads of friends during those summer months who always offer me a place to stay.
Thirdly, tickets aren't that expensive by now, for those who live in Germany or in a different European country I can totally recommend RYANAIR, they offer ridiculously cheap flights to Mallorca and other magnificent countries.
This is how I can afford traveling to Mallorca almost every second month. I wrote my first exams in January and had a semester break of six weeks after that, lucky me, I spent almost two entire months on my favorite island.
So guys, if you live in Europe or even in Germany, traveling is really not that difficult, there's always a cheap flight waiting for you and we, as Europeans, are very lucky to have loads of different and diverse countries so close. Even overseas flights are not as expensive as they used to be. I recently booked my next flight to New York City and didn't really pay much.
So take the chance - go out and see the world, believe me, there's a lot of great adventures waiting for you ;-)
