“People who don’t travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what’s in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live. Martin Tan ”

” In both business and personal life, I’ve always found that travel inspires me more than anything else I do. Evidence of the languages,cultures, scenery,food and design) sensibilities that I discover all over the world can be found in every piece of my jewelry. Ivanka Trump”

Almost everyone dream of taking a trip  at some point in life . Wether it is hiking machu picchu, gondola ride in Venice , visiting the ruins in Rome, sleeping under the stars or relaxing on a beach in the Caribbean.

I am not rich .

I have too much bills to cover .

I am too old/young.

I need a travel partner .

One think I know about traveling is you can’t always have it your way you need to change your mindset in making your dream a reality . So if we are on the same page lets get down to buisness.

Flights

Tickets are normally the most expensive part of your trip . Therefore it’s imperative that  you do a lot of research in this area ahead of time (at least 3 months ). There is a lot of search engine dedicated to finding flights such as: Jet Rader, Airtreks, kayak, vayama,skyscanner,momondo, google flight search. Please note most of the time budget airlines are not feature in these search you can check flight stats to find the airlines that goes to a particular airport.

Accommodation

Different types of accommodation are available all over the world from expensive hotels to affordable hostels,couchsurfing, airbnb,apartments, house watching/ sitting ,camping or even overnight transport.

Food

Food ,food oh how I love food . Whenever I travel  l love to indulge in the local food it’s a way to immerse yourself in the culture. While traveling food can be expensive depending on the place you go. Food will be expensive in the tourist area but the same food can be 50% cheaper. There are apps that you can download on your phone to get cheap, delicious food . Don’t worry you won’t go hungry .

Transportation

Transportation can put a hole in your wallet. Rome to Rio is great application to find the cost of transportation from point A to point B using all different type of transport and it suitable to make comparison. Local transport is always cheaper.
