Many people who travel are on a tight budget. As a traveler, you may pass up high quality for low cost, taxi rides for bus passes and fine dining for street food. Couchsurfing, hitchhiking, and houseswapping have all risen out of the need for low cost travel options. Is there a limit to how far you would go to save a buck? Have you ever spent a long night in an airport, sustained yourself on pasta and marinara, or walked a couple of miles to save on taxi fares? Is there an ethical, social, or commonsense limit to what you would do to stay on budget? What's the most extreme thing you've done to keep your budget in check? Please share your stories below.
