Travellers by necessity are quite mean with money. Scant lifesavings- a few thousand pounds if you are lucky, a few thousand more when converted into dollars- doesn't get you very far these days. International flights alone will eat through half of that like an army of ravenous ants. Coupled with this, as the rest of the world rises economically, the places where one can live like a king on next to nothing are getting fewer and far between. This is a good thing. I think.
