How much does a life of constant travel cost? It’s a fair question, as it’s a relatively curious and out of the box thing I’ve been doing over the past 18 months. If you’ve been following along with my ‘cost of travel’ posts over the last year and a half, you’ll know that I keep a pretty dang detailed record of how much I spend whilst traveling. Each month, I Continue reading What Does 365 Days of Travel Cost? Less Than $50/day.
I’m obviously a bit late in getting this ‘cost of travel’ budget roundup out, and I apologize! Things were a bit busy in the travel world during both those months, but now that I’m finally settled in once place for a while, I’m playing a bit of catch up. Look out for a post on the cost of 365 days of travel pretty soon! In the meantime, here’s what the cost Continue reading The Cost of Travel – December 2015/January 2016 Roundup

I didn’t Continue reading The cost of travel – September/October 2015 budget roundup
Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to do some incredible things during my dabble in long term travel. From trekking to Mt. Everest Base Camp, to SCUBA diving between tectonic plates in Iceland, to hiking the Great Wall of China and becoming a beach bum on the island of Koh Lanta in Thailand. I wouldn’t trade a single second of anything I’ve done in the past 13 months. Continue reading The Downsides of Long Term Travel

A spot in an 12-18 Continue reading How to Save Money on Accommodation by House Sitting
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I quit my job and set off to travel the world by myself. It’s also fitting that this is my 100th blog post! SO much has happened since then. So much has changed. For better and for worse. That’s the thing about travel. As anyone who has ever done any sort of extensive travel, it never goes as planned. Ever.
