A little about myself..
The past few years I've been in medical school grinding away to become an ER doc. There are only small windows of time where I can fit travel in, but the larger hindrance is monetary. Even though I worked 90-hour weeks and had occasional 30-hour shifts, there is no pay. Medical school costs around $65k/year times four years, plus four years of $43k/year of undergrad and interest over the life of the loan, and I end up with a tab of around $800k.
That said, I've still managed to travel quite a bit without exacerbating my financial situation. It's been a fine art of getting my credit score as high as possible, taking advantage of bonus offers for airline miles and credit card offers, and various ways of earning points here and there. It's quite surprising how much traveling I've done in the last 5 years.
