Study abroad can be expensive. And if you travel a lot, it can be really expensive. Here's a simple plan for preparing for life abroad.
You can get great deals at restaurants, markets, and museums. Apply for one while you are in the states, they will mail it to you in 4-6 weeks.
Everything from train and bus tickets to hostels to little restaurants with friendly owners will give.
Groceries are far cheaper than eating in restaurants. Cook any chance you get!
Price-wise local public transportation is always the better option over taxis (except at night when taxis are much safer).
