Traveling without Money

Book: Steps Towards Inner Peace

The Peace-Pilgrim was a woman living almost 30 years without money, in the walhalla of money: the United States. She made many walking trips and took only little on those trips. She lived just from what people gave her and she never needed any money!

Her message was about an inner peace that is reachable by anyone. You as well! It's the ultimate form of happiness, always in peace with whatever is there. Always be at peace with yourself.

"Steps Towards Inner Peace" is the book published after her death. The book is available for free. You can order it at the website about the book and there is also a digital version in Dutch and other languages.

Dumpster Diving Tips

 trash turned treasure

There's enough food for everyone, but a lot of food is chucked. Stores, consumers and producers simply dump a lot of good food! You can find this food by checking the bins you find outside of stores. Dumpster diving can also be a lot of fun!

No money for food

No money for food? Looking for free food? What now? On Moneyless.org we have quite a few tips to get food without money. There's no reason to starve if you don't have money. On the contrary. You can ask for food and you can search for food. If you follow some of these tips you might even eat tastier food than if you had bought your food.

Moneyless on the road

I have just returned from a first successful trip without money through the Netherlands. Over three weeks walking from spot to spot, just with a hammock, some toiletry, sour dough for making bread and extra clothing.

Effective Refusal

Last summer I was traveling in Portugal. Walking and thumbing. I hitchhiked from North to South and enjoyed all received hospitality. In those three months I have not spent any more, except sometimes when I received money from people and needed a break. I didn't have anything myself.

I didn't have plans and so I ended up in many adventures, not in the last because I was open to meet new people. And thus I met quite a few characters who were excellent at effectively refusing.

For example a man in Porto who was sitting on a bench holding the entire world in his hands.

Go Camping

Living without money is easier if you don't have to pay rent for a room or house. A tent as a temporary home is a perfect way to live without money, and if you're traveling an excellent way to get in touch with the world.

First step

I've traveled without money before. Three months through Portugal on foot and by thumb. Soon I hope to also travel without money in Holland. I'll go on foot and live off of what people give me.

Go hitchhike

A car costs a lot of money. A whole lotta money. Insurance, maintenance. Initial buying costs are very high and gas prices are mainly rising. And many cases you don't really need a car. Forget about it and go hitchhike!
