[TSE 132] Live Like the Rich in a New Destination for Half the Price with Tim Leffel

Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 35 comments

132 - Tim L QuoteHave you ever wondered what it might be like to live in another country for an extended period of time? Wouldn’t it be great if you could live like a King or Queen in another country for less than it currently costs you to live at home?

Well in my experience, traveling the world is often cheaper than the cost of staying put in your home town. You don’t have mortgage or car payments, you don’t need to buy stuff for your house, you don’t join gyms and community groups and start paying left, right and centre for all sorts of extras.

One person who knows more about this than most is Tim Leffel. He’s been living with his wife and daughter in Mexico for the last 2 years on half the amount that it costs him to live back home in the United States!

Tim is a travel writer who backpacked around the world for three years before the Internet was mainstream. His blog and book on the World’s Cheapest Destinations is a must-read for anyone looking to move to another country either for a short or extended period of time.

As a digital nomad who is always on the road, I found Tim’s book to be full of helpful ideas, tips and case studies that I can use when planning my next trip.

You’ll have to listen to this podcast to find out where I am going next and to hear Tim’s stellar advice to help me plan my upcoming trips, you also stand a chance to WIN a generous bonus package from Tim and me.
