I offer valuable information so you can prevent a great trip from becoming a bad one. For starters, running out of money half way through the trip is no fun. Having traveled to almost 600 destinations definitely was not cheap for me…but it was feasible. Yes, the rumors are true. I figured out ways to stay at 5-star hotels for free (think overlooking the Louvre museum from your balcony). However, most people cannot pull that off and until becoming a travel expert, neither could I.
My tips go beyond how to budget and get stuff for free. Much more important to saving money is how to travel safely. In my teens, I was violently robbed in Barcelona, Spain. Although it never compromised my enthusiasm for traveling nor for my love for Barcelona (I returned and am glad I did), it taught me a thing or two about safety. This is an exercise I get better and better at each year as I continue my journey.
Nothing makes me go berserk like when locals try to scam me. The majority of such experiences I have had are in what I still believe is the most beautiful country on earth…Italy. Although there is no perfect way to avoid scammers, I have learned how to take effective precaution without making it a chore and killing the beauty of getting lost in culture.
Ultimately, it’s all about the experience: the food, outdoor adventures, architecture and not least, the people. There is nothing better in the journey than to familiarize with and immerse in culture. This is a never-ending mission and I would not want it any other way. I am here to help you choose the right places for your needs and desires and to prepare you for the journey. The Tricks Only Travel Experts Know is an interesting and entertaining e-Book that shows just how to make your fantasy trip a reality.
