How do you inspire a wanderlust life without spending loads of money? At the end of each Christmas season, I’m simply exhausted and burnt out from the constant flow of shopping oriented emails flowing into my inbox. Has the internet really degenerated to this; a massive shopping mall?
Looking to fuel your wanderlust life without spending a dollar? These are some great eco ideas!

Tips On How To Fuel A Wanderlust Life On A Budget
Old National Geographic’s From The Op Shop, Garage Sales Or Grandma
National Geographic Magazine is the pre-runner of the internet, except it is consistently well researched and photographed. The best thing is, people are quite liberal with giving old Nat Geo magazines away. There is no better magazine to inspire wanderlust travel than Nat Geo. We just got a box of about 40 magazines from the late 1990s and not only was my wanderlust life ignited, but I was also inspired intellectually.
These articles are highly researched and spoke to my intellectual curiosity in the world.
Have A Film Night With Your Family Of Your Own Travel Films And Wanderlust Life
This is also known as a slide night. My mother used to explain that in the 1970’s when someone returning from overseas travel would host a slide night to share their best photos and stories of their travels.
As a kid, we used to do this with 8mm home movies, and later on video films. Inspire your wanderlust travel and value your travel by setting up a night to enjoy and celebrate the places you have been with some of your best friends!
Go To The Library And Spend Some Time Browsing
Like reading a well-researched magazine, there is nothing quite like a good travelogue filled with adventure to inspire us to more powerful travel! It really depends what kind of adventure you like, but some of our favorite travel writers are [easyazon_link identifier=”0965478521″ locale=”US” tag=”world06006-20″ cart=”n” localize=”y”]Ted Simon[/easyazon_link], [easyazon_link identifier=”B07DKZM24V” locale=”US” tag=”world06006-20″ cart=”n” localize=”y”]Paul Theroux[/easyazon_link], [easyazon_link identifier=”163557076X” locale=”US” tag=”world06006-20″ cart=”n” localize=”y”]William Dalrymple[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier=”0767903862″ locale=”US” tag=”world06006-20″ cart=”n” localize=”y”]Bill Bryson[/easyazon_link].
Drop your favorite travel writer in the comments; we are always looking for some good quality inspiration!
Groan? I debated as to include this on here – yes it’s free, but it is so unreal.
Visually, nothing tops Instagram! Beautiful pictures, stunning scenes, and carefree people living their best life. Oh, but actually, we don’t know whether they are living their ‘best life’. Even when Instagrammers share the stories of their trials and tribulations of travel it doesn’t read like a novel is and so is slightly disjointed. Visually, Instagram is a great inspiration, but in terms of conscientious adventure travel, I am not so sure.
