Travelling Around The World
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel around the world? Maybe take a year off, sell everything, and go see what the rest of the world has to offer?
Well, luckily for us, there are plenty of people who have done exactly that. They’ve sold everything they own and set out on an epic journey to discover new cultures and ways of life.
But rather than just reading about their experiences, we can actually follow in their footsteps.
The road may be slightly different for each of us, but with a little planning and perseverance it’s not impossible.
So if you think you have what it takes to take on The Challenge... Let’s get ready to Travel Around the World!
Research your route
Before you even think about selling what you own, you need to start by researching your route.
Where do you want to go? Do you want to go east or west?
Do you want to go north or south?
If you don’t know where you want to go, then how will you know where to start?
You’ll then need to work out the best route to get you to your destination.
You’ll also need to decide how long you want to be away for.
Do you want to go for months or do you want to go for years? Once you have decided on a destination, it’s time to do some research.
Sell everything you own
If you’ve decided to sell everything and travel around the world, you’ll need a lot of money.
You’ll need enough to not only fund your trip but also sustain yourself until you’ve managed to find work abroad.
But before you rush off and start trying to sell everything, you’ll need to make sure you have enough money to survive.
You’ll also need to make sure you have enough to get you started on your journey.
There are a few things you’ll need to do before you start flogging your stuff.
You’ll need to make a list of everything you own and come up with a price for each item.
You’ll also need to decide what you’re going to do with your stuff while it’s being sold.
You might want to take it to a car boot sale or a local market or you might want to hire a storage unit.
Find a trustworthy camper van
Once you have found a few things to sell, you’ll start to build up a nice little nest egg.
But how are you going to convert that into cash?
Well, you could always take out a huge loan and buy a car outright, but that’s not very practical.
It’s also not very sustainable. Instead, you might want to look into buying a camper van.
You can find some great second-hand campers for a fraction of the price of a car.
You may just want to buy a camper van outright or you might want to buy one that needs a bit of work doing to it.
If you’re buying a camper van that needs work doing to it, you may want to find a trustworthy camper van repair company.
Hiring a motorhome or RV
If you don’t have the money to buy a camper van or you just don’t feel like buying one, you could always hire a motorhome or an RV.
This way, you don’t have to worry about finding somewhere to park it or paying for parking all the time.
You can just drive to where you want to go, park up and stay there until you’re done.
You can either hire a motorhome or an RV directly or you can find a company that lets you rent a camper van.
You can then find a place to park your camper van for free. Hiring a motorhome or an RV, however, can be expensive. You may want to look into ways you can reduce the cost of hiring a motorhome or an RV.
Travel by train
Trains can be very cheap and very comfortable. You may want to purchase a pass so you can travel as much as you want for a set amount of time.
If you want to go to a particular city but you don’t know where to start, you can visit websites like Seat61.com.
This site allows you to search for the best deals and find out what time the trains are.
You can then decide which one to take. When booking your train tickets, you should book as early as possible. This way, you can make sure you get the cheapest tickets available.
When you travel around the world, you’ll likely fly a few times. If you can, try to fly with an airline that offers rewards in the form of points.
If you accumulate enough, you can exchange them for free flights in the future.
Some airlines reward points for booking specific flights at certain times. You can use a flight booking website like Skyscanner to find the cheapest flights.
Be aware that the cheapest flight isn’t always the best flight.
You may want to fly with an airline that has a good safety record. You can use websites like AirlineReporter.com to find out which airlines have the best safety records.
If you’re going to travel around the world, you’ll want to start saving early. The earlier you start, the sooner you’ll be able to save enough money to go.
You may want to consider getting a part-time job in the evenings or weekends so you can save up even faster.
You may also want to get a second job or find a way to make money online.
You can use the internet to make money while you’re on the road. You can write travel articles or try to make money online by doing things like promoting products or services.
You can also use the internet to help you with your journey.
You can use sites like Google Maps to help you navigate your way around the world.
