What type of traveller are you?
Are you the one that agonises over your travel outfits, pulls out the biggest suitcase, fills it up with all your favourite dresses, tops, trousers, scarves and 20 pairs of shoes for a week’s holiday and then only wears two outfits the whole time?
Do you find it a struggle packing for your next trip? More often than not, packing clothes and shoes is the most difficult part. For those of us who travel with only a carry-on, what we carry in our toiletries bag can have us ‘pulling our hair out’ with all the regulations in place.
How daunting it is to pack for your holiday! It is confusing, tricky and frustrating, but I think I got it right – now, after 5 years.
Since 2013, I have been travelling the world. I first out with a 100-litre bag, then a 65-litre bag and now just with a carry on and a daypack.
It’s hot, very hot! The turquoise blue water is glistening and there is only a gentle movement of waves as our ferry glides through Sydney Harbour on our way from Manly to Circular Quay.
Sydney, Australia is a spectacular destination to visit, but the distance to travel here can take anywhere up to 24 hours depending on where you live, so you need to plan your visit well.
If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit Ireland. But prepare yourself in advance, you just may have too much ‘craic’ and you may just not want to leave.
We had so much fun in Ireland that Hurricane Ophelia must have read our minds and delayed our departure for a day. We did not complain too much at all.
When Lonely Planet listed Porto as one of their ‘must see’ destinations for 2017 we just had to include it in our itinerary for the year.
We are celebrating another full travel year on budget! This article summarizes our 2nd year of travelling the world on USD $72 for a couple per day. It is much cheaper for us to travel the world than to sit on the couch in our hometown of Sydney, Australia.
