Long Term Travel Tips
Tips to help you manage your time and stay safe and sane while on the road for long term travel.
Yesterday we wrote about the 10 things we Hate about Travel. You didn’t think that we would just leave you with that would you? We had to counter that negative post. We love to travel and believe me, we love more things about travel than we hate. Otherwise we wouldn’t be doing it. The problem with writing this post was narrowing it down to only 10 things.

We could talk about touts and scam artists or getting ill and lacking the comforts of home. But we don’t hate that either. We could talk to you about a lot of things.

Here are some signs that told Dave and I that we just may have a little bit of travelers Fatigue.
We have received a few emails lately asking us how we travel the world. People want to know what we do in our day to day lives to save and budget and people want to know how we afford it. Many people are so afraid to take a chance to follow their dreams that they forget to live. As travelers, we view life as living, not the amount of things that you have in your possession. If you are feeling the same way, you just may want to check out the links that we have listed above.
