We are a mature couple working our way around Australia and saving for an overseas trip to Europe ,
We are seeing new places as we go which is great fun.
Organise a working holiday , cut back on unneccesary expenses etc .
Planning too much of the trip takes the fun & adventure out of it and as we are not into wasting money on fancy accommodation when we spend so much time outdoors that leaves more money for exploring !
We treated ourselves to a beach shack for a couple of nights which was amazing at Cape Leveque Western Australia - cooked on the fire ! Very romantic !
You can make friends camping & staying at hostels rather than flashy hotels where people keep to themselves more .
