Is backpacking for you?

Backpacking is a very common way of traveling for many young people and the adventures at heart. It’s very common among young people because it is arguably the cheapest way to travel.

The definition of a backpacker is very open ended but basically, means anyone who keeps all their traveling necessities in their backpack while they travel. How long you go for and the level of comfort is completely up to the traveler. Some people go for months or in the extreme even years traveling and living out of their backpacks while others may only go for a few weeks. A huge thing is having the right backpack so you don’t hurt you back or shoulders. Continue reading “Is backpacking for you?”

Can you actually travel for free?

youth-570881_1920I’m sure you have seen plenty of people claiming that you can actually travel the world for free, but is it true? Can it actually be that easy as they make it seem? There are hundreds of websites and bloggers claiming they can show you how to travel the world for free. But if that’s really true why isn’t everyone doing it?

Well because the truth is that it’s not that easy. Truly traveling for free is like winning the lottery, it’s possible sure, but not very likely. The only way to really travel for free is to win a trip in a contest (and even then they often have expenses associated) and that’s just the honest truth about it. So can you actually travel the world for free? No. Nothing in life is really free, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to travel for very cheap.

Traveling for cheap only requires a bit of work on your side and can be 100% worth it. Over the years I have found a few ways that really do work, and work well. So here are the best four ways you can actually travel for really cheap. Continue reading “Can you actually travel for free?”

My review promise

All my reviews of are 100% things that I own, have owned or have tried personally, not second-hand opinions.  I promise you that you will always have my honest opinion of products I have tried myself!

So many times I have read a review bought something, only for it to break a month later, or even get something completely different! You have my guarantee you won’t find that here.

9 proven ways to get a cheaper flight

Ever wonder how some people always seem to get super great deals on flight tickets, when you can never seem to find them? It’s probably because they knew these awesome tips.

 

1.Check one-way tickets from different companies 

Sometimes it will be cheaper to book a flight one way with one company and then fly back with another. Its a bit more work to look it up, but it can save you hundreds on the right day.

 

2.Don’t group buy

If you’re booking with 25+ people, go ahead, save a headache and book a group flight.

If you do it individually you can save normally a hundred or more Continue reading “9 proven ways to get a cheaper flight”

My top 10 travel tips

Over the years of my travel I have definitely learnt a few things to help me out on the way, and some have been learnt the hard way.
