We saved and sacrificed to fulfill our dream, the one that so many people think they can’t accomplish or are afraid to embark on, traveling around the world. Our lives in Los Angeles were filled with Blackberrys, Starbucks coffee, endless traffic, meetings and insane works weeks. We traded in everything we knew for backpacks, instant noodles, one inch thick mattresses, bed bugs, twelve hour bus journeys and the most amazing memories we could ask for. We were on a tighter budget than most, trying our best to live off $50 a day for both of us (TRYING is the key word) and blogging the truth of our travels. Traveling for us has opened our hearts, our eyes, our taste buds and our minds to the lifestyles of people around the world. We feel we have given ourselves a wonderful gift that will not only shape who we are while we’re away but for the rest of our lives! Where there is will, there is a way…you don't need have to have a lot of money to travel, just get out there and do it!!
We've been back for a year and a half now since enjoying a trip around the world which lasted over 2 years. It's been a hell of a year or so, dealing with things we weren't nearly prepared for...even things as seemingly simple as trying to re-integrate into the "real world." That "old pair of pants" just didn't fit when we came back, but we've since found our ways and are heading back out on the road (just for a couple months this time). Just the mere thought of heading back to our love (Asia) is enough to make a giddy like little school kids! So, we're off to Thailand and we'll see where else tickles our fancy.
We have committed to help those that are planning a trip or are currently exploring the world with the Traveler Tips we post in each blog. Please send us a message if you need any advice, we'd be more than happy to help.
