Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Even though I now live in New York, Vienna will always be my home. Recently, I had the chance to return home and make a trip back to Vienna. Upon arrival, I quickly remembered all of the great things about it that I love, especially the food!

Does Your Trip Have A Name?

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Travel is a source of inspiration. Being in a new place stirs the emotions and forces the brain to ponder new concepts. So, it’s no surprise that some of our users here at Budget Your Trip have shown us some of their creativity. Sometimes when we travel, we simply refer to our trip as, “that time we went to the beach” or, “summer vacation.” However, every now and then, a trip comes along that deserves something better and bigger. It deserves a real name – a name that stands alone to let the world know that you’re going out there to find something amazing.

Duane and Kim: Wright2Travel

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Recently we found out about Duane and Kim, an Australian couple planning a trip around the world. As we are huge fans of long term travel and extended career breaks, we naturally wanted to learn more about this intrepid couple and their exciting trip. After all, they have no set date to return home! Their plans will take them from Australia to Southeast Asia, and then into China, over to Europe and then to the U.S. We asked them a number of questions about their trip and their planning process, so read on to find out what they said.

Peg Legging Around The World – Top Pirate Locations to Plunder

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

If you think about it, Pirate Travel is a completely sensible topic for posting about. It’s always good to get back to our (ancestral??) roots and remember that they were the original pioneers of the randomised, inquisitive and adventurous ideals of travel. Plundering their way around the world cove to cove, finding the unexpected and bathing in the riches on offer sounds faintly familiar. Many a traveller will bounce from hostel to hostel, enriching their lives, perhaps not through treasure but more through experiences and photo shots. So here’s to tracing the footsteps (or peg steps!) of history by outlining a few treasures of pirateyness left unplundered around the world. (more…)

Skott and Shawna from Get Up and Globe

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

A few months ago, recently married couple Skott and Shawna left their home in Saskatchewan to travel the world for a year or more. That sounds like a nice little honeymoon to us! They started in England and then ventured over to the mainland where they’ve taken in some terrific sites on their journey, including a 35-day hike along the Camino de Santiago. We caught up with them in Morocco to find out what else they’ve been up to and how their trip is coming along. (more…)

Jet Lag: How To Get Over It

Monday, May 9th, 2011

In a few weeks we will begin our trip to China and Mongolia by suffering through a 14 hour flight from Atlanta to Tokyo. As much as we are looking forward to this grand adventure, we’re really dreading the long flight. Sometimes the worst part is having a layover in an unfamiliar airport between two long flights (Tokyo, in our case). You’re exhausted and just want to sleep, but all you can do is sit and wait, trying to keep yourself awake. Finally, once you arrive at your destination, you want to have the energy to explore your new surroundings. However, your internal clock will soon overcome any adrenaline rush, forcing you to retire to your new hotel.

Yes, jet lag really sucks.

Some say that it takes an entire day to adjust for each timezone that you cross on your flight. That could be up to 12 days if you’re traveling to the opposite side of the world. Who has time for that? It’s different for everyone, though, as some adjust faster than others. Younger travelers, or those that exercise often, are said to adjust faster. (more…)

Meet Plan Go Recap: How To Budget Your Trip

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

I was honored to be on the panel of speakers at Meet Plan Go in Austin, and it was a great event. I hope everyone learned something and became inspired to travel! Naturally, I spoke primarily about budgeting (being the co-found of Budget Your Trip and all that).

When it comes to long-term travel, everyone always asks, “how much does it cost?“ My wife and I have done several long-term trips, and over time we’ve learned how to put it all together. It’s hard to get all of that “expertise” out in one night during an event such as Meet Plan Go, so I wanted to try to put some words down in writing that will hopefully educate those of you planning a trip. No, we’re not accountants or financial planners or professional tour guides. We’ve just done this enough times to the point where we’re comfortable hopping on a plane, knowing what to expect when we arrive, and how to figure it all out along the way.

Here’s what I talked about at the Meet Plan Go event in Austin (both on the panel and to individuals after): how to figure out your budget, factors that affect your budget, planning not to have a plan, and how to save money. (more…)
