How to Travel the World on the Cheap.

Most people think they have to save a ton of money to experience something that most of us all dream of, traveling around the world. If money isn’t an issue, the most often used excuse, is that the time is just never right. We are too wrapped up with our busy lives to ever take off that much time. How could you possibly do something like this.  Well, we are creatures of habit and we often do the safe thing, the thing we are used to, working and busting our ass off just to make ends meet. And for what? So we can buy more crap that constantly needs upgrading and eventually becomes obsolete?We are like hamsters on a wheel, going around and around, doing the same thing, week by week, year by year. Every once in a while you just got to hop off and go a new direction. The things is, you don’t need much to travel, “Someday” is not a day of the week. Get lost! No I mean it. Go, Go Somewhere. Experience life. When I was traveling through Cambodia on my motorcycle, no map, no mobile, amused friends would  later ask, didn’t you ever get lost? I replied, “How could I get lost, if I didn’t know where I was going?”  and that is the great thing about traveling, it is an open book of new adventures and new friends, new lands and new stories just waiting to happen and later be told. I would come to a fork in the road and take then that looked more interesting to me.   You do not have to be smart to leave it all behind, but you will be much wiser for it.Travel writer Tomislav Perko, 29, from Croatia talks on Tedx : http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB and shares his unique adventure and tells you how you can do it too. After a career as a stockbroker, fell apart after the financial crisis, Tomislav travels the world on little money, hitchhiking and couch surfing from country to country. ...

Howling fun at the Full Moon in Koh Phangan

Top 5 Reasons to Howl at the Full Moon on Koh Phangan Legend has it that it began as a New Year’s Eve send off for some travelling Aussies in the 1980s and word quickly spread that these islanders knew how to party. Others claim that a group of hippies hopped up on the local party favorers figured out that an all-nighter was the best way to experience this end of the island. Whichever story you prefer, the Full Moon Party on Had Rin beach, located in the southeastern point of Koh Phangan, Thailand is today’s premier party spot in Southeast Asia – and shows no signs of slowing down. So, whether you’ve been dreaming of hitting this infamous party for years or are new to the idea, here are our top five favorite reasons to make the trek over to land of rice and sunshine. And come on; did you really need more than one?   1.)Location, location, location Sure, you may have partied on the sand before, but unless you’re from Thailand, we promise your view didn’t come close to this. Set on the sunrise-facing southeastern point of the island, nestled in one of the worlds premiere archipelagos, long before the first bucket was poured Koh Phangan was already famous for her soft white sands and stunning views. As an added bonus, when the beaches on this island fill up, it’s just a quick boat ride over to one of her deserted neighbors’ shores; ensuring that you’re never short of a spot of sand to call your own..   2) Loose morals and even looser bikini straps Let’s be honest, no self-respecting tropical trip is complete without a wild hookup story to share with all your friends upon your return home. And friends? This island will not disappoint. Word of mouth may have turned this monthly beach bash into the 10,000+ person party it is today, but we have it on good authority that it’s the endless flock of beautiful people that keep many attendees coming back for more..    3)Music Mecca  As it’s name implies, the party pops each month on the full moon; giving party goers a full twelve opportunities a year to make their travel dreams come true. Twelve nights a year sounds pretty good to those of us with tight schedules, but it also sounds pretty good for the musically inclined. What started as a sandy stage for a lone guitarist close to 30 years ago has blossomed into an emerging DJ’s dream come true. Like music? Think 15 sound systems blasting anything from Electronic, Trance, and Goa to Reggae and Dub. That’s what we...

But Goa makes our list of  Hot Travel destinations, because it offers killer ragers and a more cultural experience. PAW loves Goa because it is a truly magical hotspot with a gorgeous paradise with a lush landscape and a richly complex culture. Goa’s party scene will take you to the stratosphere, but it’s Goa’s natural beauty that will rocket you into outer-space. The small Indian state offers 63 miles of incredible coastline, behind which lies rolling emerald hills. In those jewel toned caverns lie ancient temples, humble farms, and an exotic animal kingdom. Exploring some of Goa’s river sanctuaries and ancient Buddhist caves will put you in the meditative mind so you can really unwind when they start to pump those techno beats. For centuries, Goa has been a meeting point of races, religions, and cultures. In 1510, Goa’s breathtaking beauty called settlers from Portugal, who ruled over the location for 450 years leaving a distinctly European mark on the local culture. Lax laws make Goa a place where you can get wild without consequences, but it’s this Portuguese influence that makes Goa super sexy. You know personality counts! We at PAW love any place on the planet that features new and amazing ways to get crazy, but Goa really tops our list because of its a tropical splendor and unique history!

If you go to Tibet, you will certainly change your life and come back completely renewed. If you really visit the country with cleverness, you can visit temples and caves that date back hundreds of years, and learn from a culture that has more knowledge to share than what anyone would ever be able to handle on their own.
