A TOOWOOMBA woman has swapped a life of debt for a life of travel and wants to encourage others to do the same.
Meagen Collins and her partner Tom Williams have visited 23 countries in two years and earn a living from travelling the world and podcasting the secrets of their lifestyle.
The couple started a travel blog called the Five Dollar Traveller to show people it is possible to travel and live on $29 a day.
Ms Collins said it was surprisingly cheap to travel full-time.
"We rarely stay in dingy hostels and normally we find amazing accommodation at a very good price or for free," Ms Collins said.
"Our favourite country so far is a toss up between the Philippines and Greece," she said.
In 2011, the couple discussed settling down and two years later they had saved enough for a house deposit.
After deciding not to live a life of debt, the pair changed their minds and started travelling the world.
Ms Collins said she wanted to encourage other people to travel full-time.
"I used to sit in an office for 60 hours a week and was way too tired to do much more than sleep afterwards," Mrs Collins said.
"I don't have that problem now.
"Our new podcast is all about encouraging others to discover their travel freedom.
"There is an amazing world out there to be discovered and it's cheaper than you think to travel full time," she said.
