A Bad Tourist, economic aka cheap traveler

I’ve come to realize that I am a really bad tourist because I try not to spend a lot and stretch my dollar to it’s absolute limit. I don’t do tours or stay in super nice places and don’t buy much of anything if it isn’t transporation, food or a roof over my head. I …
