Travel- More Affordable Than Uni & Learn More.

Forget University. Instead, travel with your kids and get them on an around-the-world plane ticket and watch them excel above their peers in terms of understanding.

People think it costs a lot of money to take this route and is very difficult, which is funny, considering that University is interestingly a lot  more expensive and student loans are the most difficult part of all, loitering in a person's debt background for most of their lives usually...
Becoming an indentured & fully indoctrinated servant of the slavery system (The Money Scam) does not come at low cost.

So what's holding people back? Nothing, really...except the obstacles in their own minds.


James Holman, known as the "Blind Traveler," was a British adventurer, author and social observer, who is best known for his travel writings. He was totally blind and suffered from debilitating pain and limited mobility. In spite of these obstacles, he went on a series of solo journeys that were unprecedented in their extent of geography and method of "human echolocation." Yes, "human echolocation." What in the world is that? We'll get to that soon. But first...

Holman became the first blind person to circumnavigate the globe in 1832. He continued traveling, and by October 1846 had visited every inhabited continent. State-biologist Charles Darwin even uses his writings as a source.

So how did that echolocation work? Well, Holman had a knack to sense his surroundings by the reverberations of a tapped cane or horse's amazing adaptation if you think about it. The human mind and body are truly marvelous, as is all of nature.


One man recently traveled to every country on Earth without using an airplane. Graham Hughes used buses, taxis, trains and his own two feet to travel 160,000 miles in exactly 1,426 days. He is the first person to travel to all 201 countries without using an airplane. He did this on $100 a week. And boy does he have some stories to tell. He spent four days 'in a leaky boat' to reach Cape Verde and was jailed for a week in Congo. But he still put everything into perspective:

The main feeling today is just one of intense gratitude to every person around the world who helped me get here, by giving me a lift, letting me stay on their couch, or pointing me in the right direction.

Hughes notes how people tend to wonder how he got into the farther-out countries like North Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan, but he says those were the easy countries to get into. Which is a thought nearly impossible for your average American to compute, probably.


44-year-old Mike Spencer Bown just wrapped up his twenty-year trip of the world at the end of 2013. 
He recalled "taking local transport across Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and hitchhiking through Iraq during the U.S. invasion, including a visit to Saddam Hussein's hometown."

He made headlines as the first tourist to visit Mogadishu, Somalia, in over 20 years. Bewildered officials first tried to put him back on the plane to send him off, thinking he was a spy or something. But eventually they let him stay for a few days.

"We have never seen people like this man," Omar Mohamed, an immigration official, told the blog Middle East Online at the time. "He said he was a tourist, we couldn't believe him. But later on we found he was serious."


There is no shortage of great quotes to drive home the point that travel might just be where the heart is for some...

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." - Saint Augustine

"Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen."
- Benjamin Disraeli

"You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world." - William Hazlitt


I have heard all the worries, concerns and fear of travel from Westerners but they don't realize that their fear of travel is simply irrational.

People from Australia may often say, "I hear it is unsafe to go to Morocco because I hear you can get pickpocketed" while getting pickpocketed against their will for nearly half of their income every year in one of the highest taxed nations in the world by the Australian government, which is more often than not used to feed their own corrupt desires... a form of theft they have just grown comfortable with to the point of believing it is just a natural part of life. Worst still, Australians attempt to convince themselves that Australia is better off than most parts of the world, and that being forcefully robbed of almost 50% of your income is just the price of living in the 'lucky country', but it doesn't take long to realise, once a bit of critical research is exercised, that Australia is not much different to most other parts of the world. In fact Australians fork out more tax than most other countries to a highly corrupt government who continually lies to their country's people about war crimes, their own lavish lifestyles and corporate tax fraud.

Others from the Australia say, "I hear it is unsafe to go to Mexico because the police are corrupt and may extort you for money" while not thinking twice about how the act of them refusing to vote in fraudulent elections results in an extortion letter being sent directly to their home in the form of a "failure to vote" fine, which if they don't pay, they get their drivers license canceled... or worse, having armed Government Body Guards, called "law enforcers", commandeer them and their vehicle under any pretense usually resulting in further extortion.


You learn through travel, not by sitting in rowed seats being brainwashed by 19th century propaganda.

Were you aware, for example, that currently Iraq has one of the most lucrative economies in the entire Middle East and almost anyone doing business in the region considers it important to have an office there? Or that the Mexican stock exchange has gone up 400% in the last ten years?

If you get most of your information from the mainstream Western media you will never really know what is going on... and that is very dangerous to your finances and investments.

Luckily it has never been easier to travel and even expatriate. James Holman, the blind traveler would chortle if he heard that an able bodied person with $5,000 in the bank with access to intercontinental air travel and all information on Earth in their pocket in the form of the Internet and smartphone was fearful of traveling.

To make it even easier, however, TDV Groups is a part of the TDV newsletter which has a network of hundreds of people worldwide in over 60 countries with whom you can connect and get info directly from those who have blazed the trail before you and expatriated and made a living for themselves in places from Argentina to Uzbekistan.

And there has been no better time to travel and leave the West as The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) will make life increasingly uncomfortable for those who choose to stay through the collapse.
