Most young people would love to take off a time to travel the world to see amazing places, meet interesting people and experience different cultures before they kick-start their careers. But due to various reasons, most people could never fulfill their fun plans. However, there are some ‘fortunate’ people who could fulfill all their plans and desires with ease. And one such people is Anthony Botta, a young man from Brussels.
Anthony Botta visited eight different countries in two months, and stayed with 21 different women along the way.
The 26-year-old was determined to spend his final stint of freedom between finishing university and starting work doing something fun, and came up with a rather unusual way to do it all for free – through Tindersurfing.
Anthony would try and match with lots of women in different cities on the app, and when he got a match he would asked if he could come and stay with them for a few days.
Anthony Botta admits he had a mix of replies. In his own words:
A lot of people said it was really cool but it just wasn’t for them, which was fine. “Some said I couldn’t as they lived with their parents.Advertisement
Some people thought it was gross and that I was a bit of an a***hole. I understand that, but it’s a great way of travelling.
So fortunate is he that he had a lot of offers from several women offering to show him around their city, and more importantly, a place to stay.
Indeed, he got to meet so many people in a short period of time. He says that it was all about meeting new people and discovering new places.
What is most interesting about his tour around different countries is he didn’t spend any money at all on accommodation the whole time he was away.
During the two months, Anthony travelled to Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
He said that of the eight countries he has visited, Poland was his favorite by far.
Anthony documented his whole travelling adventure on his Youtube channel, so his friends and family could see what he was getting up to.

Anthony has stayed in touch with a lot of people he met along the way, and he’s offered to return the favor if they’re ever in Brussells.
