Zero To Travel Podcast : National Geographic Type Adventures, Lifestyle Design Like Tim Ferriss Plus Inspiration Like TED

In today's episode of the Zero To Travel Podcast, I speak to Paula Pant from Afford Anything, to get her top tips on money and travel.

Paula is an expert on this stuff because several years ago, she quit her job, sold her stuff, and backpacked around the world for almost three years. She now helps people afford whatever they want, saying you can't afford everything but you can afford anything.

Whether you're trying to save for the trip of your lifetime, or you're in debt and don't know whether or not you should pay off what you owe before you take off, Paula's tips will be able to help you out.
