Quick Hit: Best Country to Visit on a Budget?

Quick Hit: Best Country to Visit on a Budget?

We spent 6 months visiting 15 different countries. The best place to travel on a budget has to be Vietnam. You can sleep for $10–15 dollars a night (potentially less if you share a room with others). The food, particularly in the south and in Hoi An, is amazing and can be had very cheaply. Street food is abundant, delicious, relatively safe, and obviously very affordable. Long distance travel is manageable via bus and is also quite cheap. To top…

Why you should quit your job to travel

Ever thought about quitting your job to travel for an extended period of time? We’ve all sat there at our desks in the middle of a workweek and wished that we were roaming the world. Well, we’ve done more than just contemplate this. We’ve actually done it. We’ve taken the plunge. In the spring of 2015, we did something that on paper was really stupid. We quit jobs that paid us well and that we both liked. No alternative or backup plans….

The Tongariro Crossing: Better in the Winter?

The Tongariro Crossing is one of New Zealand’s seven Great Walks, and is definitely up there as one of the best walks in the world.

New Zealand: Making the Most of Your Vacation Days

Why You Should Go To Cuba ASAP

Why You Should Go To Cuba ASAP

Cuba is about to change. The last remnant of the Cold War, the frozen, embargoed and rhetoric-laden relationship between the United States and Cuba, is warming. President Obama visited Cuba in March 2016, the first sitting president to do so since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. Cuban President Raul Castro, brother of communist icon Fidel Castro, has promised to step down in 2018. President Castro has set in motion some reforms (though Cuban expats would love to see more of this),…

The Traveling Professionals: Helping You Make the Most of Your Vacation Days

You love to travel. You’ve been bitten by the wanderlust bug.
