You're ready to embark on a new adventure, and a fun loving friend wants to go, too. The two of you make a great team. Money could be a problem, so you should probably look for the most economical arrangements possible. This could work to your advantage, as it will give you an opportunity to mix with locals, instead of fellow tourists. Don't let your pride get in the way of travelling rough. The comforts of home will be that much sweeter when you return.
