How did you afford your travels and unpaid internships?

My first big trip was to Africa in 2005 when I was 23. I paid for this trip by working a couple jobs, grants, a loan, and not wasting my money on things I didn’t need. I kept these habits through all of my 20’s as I continued to pick up paid and unpaid jobs around the world; Usually, the unpaid jobs lead to paid jobs. 😉
