When I graduated college in 2009, I had $74,000 in student loans and no financial help. But I didn't let that stop me from seeing the world.
With only $800 in the bank, a credit card with a $400 spending limit and a pile of student loans, I traveled to Asia to start a software development company with my business partner.
With a strong U.S. dollar plus a low cost of living, I was able to live on just $1,000 per month. I traveled to Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia, and Vietnam despite my massive student loan debt.
When it comes down to it, there are many ways you can stretch your dollar when you travel. Here are a few methods that helped me travel abroad with substantial student loan debt.
