Travelling is far less expensive than you many think especially if your trip is done mainly independently!!

If you have got the money you probably struggle for the time. Then again we all waste a lot of time and life is full of opportunities to get away if we really look for them. It is about seizing those opportunities. Whether between jobs, before you start your first one, school/college holidays, sabbaticals, retirement or just using normal annual leave from work to the maximum potential (as many do). You don’t need to travel for months at a time and you can see and do an amazing things in one weeks (or less) if that is all you have. If you really want the time you will make it. However, a word to the wise: don’t put it off. If you have the opportunity to travel, take it. It only gets harder as you get older. Getting richer/older normally means getting busier and having more commitments.

Other societies and ethical norms function pretty similar to the one you know and what’s more there are thousands, of other travellers there right now moving around safely, enjoying themselves in what is a highly researched & experienced infrastructure of tours, transport, accommodation, food, etc. by our team. All geared for people just like you to make your trips as fun and easy as possible (in exchange for a some money of course!) and mainly we are not far away only a question away from giving you far better local advice you can ever find on the internet.
