Traveling is a passion and those who travel frequently know best how much they connect with people while their wanderings. It is not a selfish enjoyment rather coming out from a limited shell and sees the world around you with different eyes.

Unfortunately many travelers, especially nomads find different outlandish tricks to save money on the road. These tricks are often cheating, stealing or illegal skimping secrets.
