7 Tips On How To Crowdfund Your Travels

Author, global nomad, and public speaker, Francis Tapon, has some interesting thoughts on crowdfunding your travels in this guest blog post on Gobackpacking.com:

It sounds like an impossible dream: a bunch of people throw money at you so that you can travel around the world.

However, it’s now easier than ever to travel the world.

Throughout history it seemed that only rich people could travel the world, yet even they rarely went far. That’s because most people who are rich enough to travel to around the world for months would rather sit on their ass in their cushy mansion.

Still, there were exceptions. For instance, I just read A Voyage Across the Americas about a wealthy dude who left Switzerland and explored the Americas in the 1850s. And then there’s the most famous self-funded traveler, Marco Polo.

However, my favorite is the Duke of the Abruzzi (1873-1933), who didn’t just travel all around the world, but was also a hardcore mountaineer. He not only climbed North America’s second highest mountain (in Alaska), but he also found the easiest way up K2, the second tallest mountain in the world. Although he never got to the summit, that popular route is now called the Abruzzi Spur.

But wait. Not all world travelers were filthy rich. Some were just filthy.

Crowdfunding your travels is actually old news. Many famous explorers of yesteryear crowdfunded their travels.
