This upcoming summer, I am planning on attending a summer program that travels across the world. I have never been on a trip across the world, but I have heard that trips like these are once in a life time opportunities that are usually never forgotten. My hope is that I will have this kid of an experience.
However, now that times are tough economically, it is extremely difficult to afford this great trip.
The Process of Saving Up
Nevertheless, I will describe some of the ways that I have been trying to afford the trip.
1) First of all, I have been doing my regular daily job, as well as a side job. The money helps, but I need to afford rent and food on top of the cost of the trip.
2) Next, I have asked for grants from certain organization that fund trips across the world. I have heard from only one organization so far, and they were willing to chip in for part of the trip. This indeed helped.
I know that at one point I will get the amount that I need, and I hope that it was worth the hassle of saving up for the trip.
