Travel Around the World Guides

1-Price your trip as an “Around-the-World” ticket.
For train travel. Amtrak is the national rail company in the United States. In Europe, consider buying Eurail (for non-EU citizens) or Interail (for EU citizens) international railpasses. In Asia the Trans-Siberian railway goes from Moscow to Beijing where you can connect to Shanghai then Tokyo.
For bus/coach. In the United States, Greyhound provide bus travel. In Europe, Eurolines provide a pass to cover travel between more than 45 European cities. Megabus provide intercity bus travel in North America and Europe.
For air travel. Air travel is generally the most expensive way to travel. Use flight comparison websites such as travelsupermarket, skyscanner and kayak. Use flight brokers such as travelocity, expedia and opodo.

If you want to go by plane, or by plane for parts of the trip, there are Around-the-World tickets. These tickets allow you to fly from city to city around the globe on your own schedule for significantly less than you’d have paid for individual tickets. Pay close attention to restrictions. Many “Around-the-World” tickets mandate that you must always be going in the same direction, ex. L.A. to London to Moscow. You could not go L.A. to Paris to London, this takes significantly more preparation.
For ship/ferry travel. Cruises can be cheap if you consider accommodation and meals are included. Cunard operate transatlantic cruises. TheCruisePeople compare cruise prices.
2-Get accommodation. Some ideas for housing are hostels, which are located all around the world or if you have friends or family who live internationally, staying with them.
3-Buying groceries. Making your own meals will dramatically cut costs, as opposed to eating out every meal.
4-Stay in touch. For safety purposes, every few days find an Internet cafe and email your parents or friends, so they know where you are in case of an emergency.
5-Spend time with the locals and be aware of your surroundings.
6-Set a budget. Based on where you are going, how long you will be there and whether the country is 1st, 2nd or 3rd world. Obviously, first world countries are the most expensive (Europe, Canada, USA, Japan). Second world countries are a bit harder to define, but are usually somewhat developed (Mexico, Eastern Europe, China, Egypt). Third world countries are the cheapest but most difficult places to travel (most of Africa, Bolivia, Peru.
