This is something that my friends have asked me many times, how did I save enough money to go travelling, and do the things that I have done so far. The simple answer is that is can be put down to self control, determination, but most of all patience. Lexi and I saved for our last trip for around 2 years (a gap year in Central America), whilst being full time students at university, and working at the same time. As we were students this meant that our time to earn money by working was very limited, as we still needed to attend lectures and tutorials, finish assignments, and study. Not to mention still maintain friendships and be social.
