To travel Europe for free you need to be able to network, know the right applications or websites and have the will to travel.
Travelling to another continent thinking about the money you have can be frustrating, due to the insufficiency, so many expert tourists opt for futuristic websites/applications and nomadic techniques in order to enjoy the magnificent Swiss Alps, the French Louvre, the Greek landscape, the Venetian squares and much more without paying anything.
How do these sites work?
A person seeking to travel for free can start by looking for opportunities on travellers’ social networks such as Internations or search for European programmes for international volunteers.
The websites and apps allow one to get in touch with people or organisations looking for volunteers for international programmes, house-sitting and/or warehouse-sitting and the like.
