For a while now I've been interested in creating a reoccurring post about the joys of traveling BROKE... something I know all about. This is the first of those posts and it's all about a traveler's favorite experience: Food.
When traveling on an extreme budget, it's best to choose your meals wisely. I try to eat a solid breakfast, maybe even a local one. Then at lunch, pack your own! I like to shop at open air markets or a local grocery store. If you make or buy a type of trail mix or dry mix to snack on between meals. Finally, dinner is a best from a cheap cafe or dive bar.
Another good tip for cheap meals while traveling is favor packets like this.
Look forward to the next post on Backpacker's post!
