Creative travelling tips for you
Travelling means feeling free and exploring how big, multifaceted and wonderful the world is! From time to time it’s important to break out from the daily routine and to jump into a small (or a big) adventure, to gain new energy and some fresh air. There are so many destinations to go: Big cities or countryside, mountains or seaside, desert or jungle, far away or nearby – every place is worth to be discovered!
It is not expensive
Travelling changes your mind and broadens your horizon, because you get in touch with different types of food, landscapes, cultures, people, ways of living.
And nowadays travelling doesn’t have to be expensive. There are so many opportunities to spend a great time without paying much money for it. Just be creative and open-minded!
Lot of opportunities for the trip
Of course there is the good, old hitchhiking that never goes out of fashion. But there are also a lot of cheap long-distance busses, trains, low-cost flights or you can join someone who drives by car to the place you want to go to. Or you can go hiking or do a bicycle tour.
For the accommodation there are as well plenty of opportunities: Of course there are a lot of cheap hostels, especially when you travel with a bigger group of people. But you can also search for an apartement to rent, for example on www.airbnb.com. And there is my all-time-favourite: Couchsurfing! If you register on the website www.couchsurfing.org you can find great people from all over the world who offer to host you – for no money at all.
But in my opinion the greatest part of that is not safeing money, but getting to know the place where you are staying much better, exchanging thoughts with someone you never met before and maybe finding friends for life! A lot of couchsurfers have travelled a lot around the world and you could spend whole nights listening to their stories. You can cook for them -a traditional dish from your homecountry maybe- and go out with them during the night. You will discover secrets of a place which you would never have discovered as a normal tourist.
