‘If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to travel cheaper, turn your dream trip into a reality, save money, or travel the world, you’re in the right place’, reads Nomadic Matt’s ‘About’ page. Nomadic Matt takes all things ‘travel’ to the next level, with an endless amount of information about planning your dream trip, how to save money before you go, what gear and insurance you will need, cheap airfares and accommodation, and more, readily available at your fingertips. There are more than 1 400 articles on Nomadic Matt’s website, which may seem daunting when it comes to finding the right information that you are looking for, but it only means that there is so much more to read and learn about, as well as that much more travel inspiration. For me, the most important lesson on Nomadic Matt’s website would be that you don’t need to be rich to travel, and if you budget right then you can make your travel dreams come true.
