    Meet Russell Eric Dobda, author of "How to Spin the World Around with Cheap Travel, Technology and Mindfulness". Russell writes, "In 2013, I embarked on a yearlong journey around the world. It started with a series of synchronicities, and ended with insights I never could have imagined … living on under $10 a day in some places and averaging about $60 a day across the entire trip around the world, including all of my transportation, lodging, and food … [and] massages, party favors, and tourist activities. I visited 24 countries on 38 flights that averaged less than $100 each. I stayed for free with locals, who I didn’t meet in person until I arrived at their home. I lived like a local in every city instead of as a tourist hooked on tour books…" Tips for "Solo Travel 101: What Every Single Woman Should Know". www.spintheworldaround.com
