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.

Eurail a great way to experience Europe

Europe by Rail Looking for a budget vacation and a few European adventures along the way? What about designing your own route around Europe to see all those dream destinations? You can spend a weekend in romantic Paris and see the Alps before checking out the ancient architecture in Rome. Read on for how to use a Eurail ticket to plan your vacation because Europe is a lot cheaper than you think. Travel by trail is easy and efficient in Europe today and there are hundreds of destinations to choose from all over the continent. Eurail is an excellent way of seeing as much or as little of Europe as you like. The passes are split into a variety of combinations and price brackets so you can plan for a four country visit or a whistle-stop tour of the major European nations. The tickets are designed to either travel on consecutive days or on a set number of days within a given time period. And with a journey planner within the website itself you can start designing your dream journey today as well as set a budget. A Global Pass gives access to 28 countries and starts at 297 Euros whilst a one country pass is priced from 59 Euros. The four day passes start at 114 Euros so there is a lot to choose from when creating that journey. Over 300,000 people take a Eurail journey each year with some on the vacation of a lifetime and others preferring to focus on one or two countries in depth. That means that when you plan your accommodation, chances are that you’ll meet fellow Eurailers along the route as there are many hostels and budget hotels that are on the main Eurail routes. Eurail tickets are ideal for taking in the classic cities of Europe from Budapest to artistic Amsterdam and ancient Athens. Many ferry routes are included too so you could spend time on the Greek Islands or explore Sicily. Another feature of Eurail is that so many classic rail journeys can be completed using these tickets including the famous Bergen to Oslo route in Norway. Or, you can sweep across the Alps on the Bernina Express which winds through Switzerland and Italy. There are high speed trains too like the Altaria which sweeps through Spain from Madrid to Algeciras in just a few hours. Or, you can take it slow and ride one of the Alpine cog wheel railways up Europe’s highest mountains. Why not plan for a special event such as the Oktoberfest in Munich or the Carnival of Venice? Eurorail passes are just the thing to...
