Best places to find cheap plane tickets to Asia, along with a snapshot of the days expenses.
Day 1: Living in Thailand
Today $400 is equal to 11,900 Baht taking in to account bank fees.

Total for the day: 120 Baht $4.05 - Total Remaining: 11,780 Baht
What you can do now long before arriving!
- Lunch Khao Soi 25 Baht - 85cts
- Gas for the motorbike 40 Baht - $1.35
- Groceries 55 Baht - $1.85

This has cost me thousands of dollars, figuring it all out, learning everything on the fly is also extremely time consuming.
What comes to mind is "a wise man learns from others mistakes"
Lots of people are now set up in Asia earning a living through the Internet.
Getting to know some of these people before arriving, could allow you to land in Asia hitting the ground running,
saving you a lot of time and cash. If you’re thinking about quitting the 9-5 and going it alone online,
