or informative for you about travel or photography. I have done some
traveling and some photography and want to improve at both. I am reading
about photography and I signed up for a class in a few months. I hope
to be better when I land at our first stop.
I travel on a budget, but it’s more than $50 a day. I would double that
amount. I travel with a partner and she pays her own way. So $100 a day
each and we can do Europe. Most likely we will spend less than this, but
a budget is a really good idea. For far less we can do South America and
South East Asia.
I don’t stay in a room with 10 other people at a hostel. I do stay at a
hostel with a private room, usually a private bath too, but I have been
known to share. We usually stay at a Bed & Breakfast or a small hotel. We will be trying out airbnb. I am not doing it cheap and I am not doing it 4 star. We
will go off the beaten path a bit and see things that most tourists do not
see. If you have 2 weeks on a tour in Italy you will see some really great
things. You will also not meet some great people and not see much of the real Italy.
We will be visiting Europe on our first two legs. Each leg will be 3 months.
Then we will hit South America and then off to South East Asia.
Our only extravagance will be the Galapagos. Fifteen days and stopping on
9 islands. There are multiple stops on some of the islands. This will cost
us as much as the next 2 months in South America.
I will go into the travel gear I have and why I purchased it. I will go
into planning and not planning as an option. I will go into the cameras
I have and why I purchased them. I will give credit to people who I read
and got an idea from. I will go into how I did my budgeting and how I saved
for the trip.
I hope you like the blog and will stay with me for the trip. I am sure my
ideas will change as the year progresses. I want to share everything I
learn alone the way.
