READY, SET, JET! 3 QUICK TIPS TO TRAVEL CHEAP AND SEE THE WORLD

When it comes to traveling, one of the questions I get most often from family, friends and readers alike is “How do you do it?” Most people automatically assume that myself and so many other young millennials you see on social media posing in Rome at the Coliseum, or catching a ride in a tuk tuk through the bustling streets of Bangkok are spending our life savings to travel the world. This is absolutely untrue, and if they are; they’re doing it wrong.

KIA ORA – MY (MIS)ADVENTURES IN NEW ZEALAND

Kia Ora-an informal Maori language greeting often used by New Zealanders to say “hello.” Prior to visiting Sydney, my friend and I went back and forth deciding whether to visit Melbourne, or to take advantage of being so close to New Zealand and take a quick trip there.
