About Chantell

An Aussie-born minimalist who went from being stuck in a regular 9-5 to a full-time digital nomad and budget traveler.

My bragging rights include visiting 59 countries and 40 U.S. states. For the past year, I’ve been slow traveling in Australia and living out of Airbnbs.

But this location-independent lifestyle didn’t always come easy to me. Growing up in a working-class family who rarely ventured outside their home state – globetrotting sounded like a fantasy.

It took an earth-shattering job loss, horrific breakup, and going broke to realize what I really wanted.

From that point on, I put everything into saving money for my first international trip.

Over the years, my style has evolved from backpacking to moving abroad to working remotely. Yet, always remaining financially savvy.

I believe that every Babe should have the opportunity to work, earn, and travel on her own schedule.

About Budget Travel

“Budget travel” can represent whatever you want – from backpacking solo to a cheap vacation with girlfriends, and everything in between.

Traveling on a budget provides the opportunity to roam more often and for longer as your money goes further. It gives you access to authentic experiences you miss if (always) staying in all-inclusive resorts.

If you’re starting your remote work journey, it can help you keep your expenses low while you grow your income.

I encourage everyone to try local transportation, cuisines, and activities to get an insight into how other people live.

When you share conversations, laughs, and meals with people from other cultures, you’ll see incredible similarities and fall in love with the differences.
