How to travel (almost) for free ;-)

1. get an internship at a travel agency

2. become friends with the people at work

3. become friends with their friends (the ones who also work at travel agencies and/or as†guides and†have good connections in the whole country)

4. pretend to be inspecting all the facilities you send your customers to

5. enjoy the weekend!
