One of the many beautiful distant paradise like getaways, Fiji, is a surprisingly easy trip to make from the US. If you’re lucky enough to reside in NZ or AUS, you’re a close flight to this destination. Direct flights from LA land you in Nadi where you are able to stay or catch a boat to one of the other 300 islands from a series of ports.
Hello my wonderful readers, if you are indeed reading this you are probably planning to travel, and if you are smart, doing it as inexpensively as you possibly can. I have been travelling from when I was little, no, not like a travelling guru on Instagram, but every year or so I'd visit different overnight places, many times overseas. Whilst travelling I've learned different ways to cut the costs and spend as little as I can while getting the most out of my travelling experience. After finding myself using these ways in friend groups and family vacations, I have found that what I have learned has not even been on a person's mind before, which I found surprising because to me it was obvious. So, instead of having to explain this to everyone around me, I'd much rather create this blog so it could help everyone else around the world. Here are the TOP 5 ways to travel for cheap AND have your trip be fulfilled to the fullest.
If you enjoy hiking and picturesque views, then Ben Nevis is the place for you.
A few months back in August I found out that one of my favorite artists, Eric Clapton, would be playing his very last concert at The Forum in LA. Due to me living in Austin TX, airfare and hotel stays would have been outrageous if I were to fly out and stay in a hotel just for the concert. So we had to do some real research on the best way to make my concert, while still getting the full California experience and staying within my budget...
Me and my best friend Priscilla decided to go on a super spontaneous trip to Austin, TX even though we were SO broke! We both had roughly $300 each so we knew we'd have to watch what we did. We sort of had it planned out but partially we were winging everything the whole time.
As an adult, and a child, I had always envied people who could travel all over the globe. I had always thought, “I can’t do that, I’ve got to save money, and I make minimum wage.” There has always been some barrier that prevented me from traveling. Money, people, family, possessions, love, time, the list goes on.
Yes, you read that right. I know that it sounds too good to be true, but trust me, it's completely true. Travelling under $25 a day is possible, as long as you're willing to do it.
"How do you have all that money to travel?" A question that is constantly asked when people see friends consistently in exotic locations and seemingly never home. Well, traveling doesn't have to break your bank account, in fact, there are plenty of affordable destinations throughout the world. You can even affordably leave the United States. Whether you want to go to Central America, Europe, or even Africa, here are the best vacations on a budget.
Sin City is a dream holiday for those of us in the UK. We see it in films like The Hangover and our curiosity is peaked. Is it every bit as amazing as they say? Are the lights really as bright?
Let's face it, we all want to go to Disneyland. It is, after all, the most magical place on earth. Sometimes those wonderful adverts pop up on TV, and we have a quick peek on the website to see how much it would be... and suddenly that little happy impulse comes to a very quick stop.
In September 2017, I travelled to Prague, Czech Republic for two weeks. I was specifically going for a course for university, but I still was privy to all the sights and sounds of Prague. I was lucky that included in the cost of admission to this program was my room and lunch every day, but I had to pay for everything else. Prague isn't an expensive city per se, but it definitely helps to know some tips and tricks to travel that only a (broke) student would know. With the cost of the program and my flight, along with all the other sightseeing and food things I did in Prague, I spent a total of $3027 Canadian. Not bad for a full two weeks in the city!
Driving across the country seems scary, seems like a massive, and impossible trip. However when I was 19 years old, I took on this so called crazy drive, in the middle of winter, in a punch buggy, with just my dog and not to brag but we survived!
