So I guess that I should start out by telling you why I’m even here writing a blog. Well, I think it has been a long way coming. Now just seemed to be the time to actually get my act together and do something about it. Also, I convinced my sister to contribute.
I just came home from a 7 week trip, travelling through 3 continents. And whenever we’ve been talking to friends and family about what we were doing, where we were going and what budget we were going with, people seemed surprised. We would have people say; “You got ALL your plane tickets for that? That’s almost what I’ve (or insert someone elses name) paid for just going to (insert far away trip)”.
So what I’m trying to say with this is that I thought I’d share our travelling experiences and tips. Between my sister and myself, we’ve travelled to 37 countries, 5 continents, and travelled in many different ways. Generally also trying to travel on a budget, but still experience the places.
I don’t think you can ever get too many tips on how to plan your travels (always cheaper doing it yourself), or hear about too many recommendations on places to visit/see and things to experience. I know I’ve been fortunate that I’ve got to travel a lot. I grew up in a family that valued experiences rather than getting a new TV (Please don’t think I have anything against people valueing differently). We would also choose to go new places each time.
This is what I want to share. My love for travelling and to pass on something to others who share that passion. Hopefully, I’ll also learn some things from others. Life is about learning. I might expand, if I really get into this blogging thing.
