There’s a saying: youth is wasted on the young.
Cutting down this saying, it essentially means that young people don’t tend to live their life to the fullest potential. Some of them, instead of enjoying their life and meeting new people and just simply having a great time are letting it go to waste.
Instagram blogger Bridie Wilkins managed to completely overhaul her life and is currently living the dream; she takes lavish vacations all over the world, and she has now revealed her secret.
I don’t know how many of you would be able to cope with this type of lifestyle, but the 23-year-old London-based blogger has revealed that the secret to being able to take amazing vacations like she does is to live off a meager $131 a week. She would have to ditch public transport and get used to walking, and also prepare very basic meals mostly consisting of canned tuna.
“I don’t think twice about restricting my diet to things such as canned fish – if you love something as much as I do travelling, the sacrifices you make don’t even cross your mind. Travel has changed everything. I absolutely love seeing new parts of the world. It has made me into a more well-rounded person.” she told the Daily Mail.
As you would expect, she added that this change in lifestyle wasn’t easy to adapt to, and the area that’s suffering from her $131 per week the most is her social life, but if you keep an eye out for good deals and book on time you can potentially get a fantastic vacation without even having to save up as much as Bridie does. Her Instagram page currently says that she has visited 19 countries so far, and she plans to visit Copenhagen, Mexico and LA next.
“You’d never imagine it was possible to stay at some of the resorts I do on my wages, but I make it happen. I’m a live-in-the-moment kind of girl and, so far, it’s taking me far.” she was quoted as saying.
