Our Approach to Travel
We are a couple from Kolkata, India, who are travelling the world with our limited budgets, while working our 9 to 5 jobs. We want to share this experience with others like us who think traveling requires a lot of investments and equal amount of free time.
We do not travel through the year, but do it at regular intervals. We ensure we travel at least one month every year, spread across the entire year. That way we do not need to quit our jobs yet we get to travel a lot. And, we plan every holiday in advance, sometime even 2 years in advance. Plans do evolve with circumstances but, till now we have not had to reschedule any plans that we have had made.
As for finances, we indulge in a lot of travel hacks, earning air miles and redeeming them. We always try to ensure that we do not have to spend on our flights, which is the major expense in every holiday.
Another important part of our travel is the fact that we do not involve any agents. We plan and book every part of our travel ourselves - hotels, cars, boats, everything is done by us. This not only saves us money, but also allows us to learn a lot, make new friends and understand the language and culture of the land we are travelling to.
Read our blog to know more about our experiences and to learn how you can also travel the world like us. Better still, you can even join us in one of our future travels and have these once-in-a-lifetime experiences with us.
As we always say, 'it is never too late to start, but it is always better to start early', we urge you take the leap of faith and join us in our travels escapades to explore the world...
