When it comes to transportation, how much we spend depends on what kind of transportation we take. Like rather than take a taxi, it would be cheaper to take a bus or a train.
Of course, the cheapest option ($0) would be to walk.
It's easy to do if we are touring around a certain city, with a map that shows us which streets we should take in order to reach all the other places worth seeing: museums, towers, etc.
However, imagine if you have to walk a longer distance. Like, really looooong.
Imagine walking from the tip of South America up to the Northern reaches of Alaska.
Crazy, right? Well, meet crazy Ian, the guy who is taking that route by feet.
No, even if he will be saving a looooot of money by walking, he's not doing it as part of his extreme budget travel plan.
"The whole thing, the idea, the desire, the actions taken, the rationalizations and philosophies thus formed…they were all spurred by one thing: a llama."
Yes, a llama. I told you, he is crazy. And I am saying that in a positive you-are-my-god kind of way.
To date, he has walked to 4 countries: Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Perú.

Now, the next time you complain about walking several blocks in order to save money, think of Ian.
