Monday, May 14th, 2012

The six thousand eight hundred fifty-two islands of the archipelago of Japan sits in East Asia. An extremely wealthy nation, Japan has one of the biggest economies in the world. Japan is a country filled with the old and the new. Rich in history, Japan showcases many temples, museums, gardens, haikus, geishas and kimonos.

Does Your Trip Have A Name?

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.


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…)

Vagabondish recently posted a great article about budget travel and the idea of “stereotypical backpackers” which we felt was worth sharing.
