Some people keep postponing their dream of travelling. They think they don’t have the time or the money for it. Although a few adjustments will be needed, most people can reach their objective of seeing different parts of the world, throughout the year. Here are some of them.
This may seem impossible, but most often it is not. Almost any work that someone does as a job, can be turned into an independent one. Of course, you need to have some entrepreneurial qualities inside you, or else you will only end up unemployed and without money to go anywhere. The problem for couples is often for the two parties to be able to take holidays at the same time. If one becomes independent, it will be much easier to align schedules for trips.
Sell the House
If your goal is to be outside the UK most of the time, you can certainly do with an apartment whenever you are in between two trips. You can find out right away how much your house is currently worth by estimating its value on RealAdvisor, for free. By selling your house, you will suddenly have the budget that you require to travel.
Change Your Daily Habits
Saving money is not as hard as it seems. You just have to decide that you want to do so. If you take a closer look at how much you spend on restaurants, drinks in bars, theatre plays and films as well as the gas you need to fill the car to go to these various locations, you will see that you can actually pay the plane tickets and the hotel room for at least three to four days a month.
Choose your Destinations Wisely
There is no point in being stubborn, especially when you start travelling. You will end up seeing your dream cities at one point or another. Instead, search for the best deals that you can find online, on travel sites. Don’t be afraid to spend hours looking for the best deal, instead of watching the latest film on Netflix. Always keep in mind the cost of living of the destination that you choose. If you find cheap tickets for a week in Oslo, you can be sure that it won’t matter in the end. Your holidays will be very expensive because everything costs a lot in this city.
Prepare your Itinerary Ahead of Departure
If you are travelling on a tight budget, prepare a list of everything you want to visit or do and write down how much each will cost. That is also true about restaurants. Nowadays, you can find a restaurant where you will eat well at a lower cost, thanks to some great travelling apps. Define each day according to where you will be in the city, so you don’t waste time, but also to save money on transport.
Don’t postpone the life that you want till tomorrow. If you do, tomorrow may never come. Travelling is what makes you understand life better and puts you at peace with the rest of the world. Say to yourself “It is time to sell my house in the UK,” and start planning.
