1. This looks absolutely amazing! You probably get this a lot but HOW are you able to travel this way? Could you perhaps write a guide for those of us who want to see these kinds of places but have no idea how to go about it? Example, how to plan the finances, how to look for good deals etc…

      Hi Nihaad!

      Traveling on a budget is not is easy because it takes tons of research, planning and priority setting. I find the planning part fun! It gives me so much more insight into the places I’m going to and makes me appreciate the journey so much more. However, it can be super stressful. As a starting point, I always try to get info from people who have already visited the places I want to go to. You are welcome to ask us anything about the places we have been.

      I wrote a guide previously, do check it out http://suitcasesandlattes.com/diy-travel/

      Thanks for your support

      • Hi Imaan

        Thank you so much for replying! It is my dream to travel to unknown destinations, but it can be incredibly daunting. So I have been gathering information from all kinds of sources to help me plan and also to find advice that would best suit me. It is incredibly frustrating especially in SA and our current economic situation, to do what you want to do but to me it seems people are traveling now more than ever before! It baffles me, I feel as if I am missing something, and I’m making it a mission to find out what it is :p

        I love your blog, you ladies inspire me to make more of an effort to see the world.

    I know exactly what you mean! The rand sucks! That’s why I personally avoid the euro and pound zones. There are beautiful places to visit on a budget. See my post on Cambodia- one of the most amazing and cheapest places to visit. The far east is always a winner. http://suitcasesandlattes.com/what-a-trip-malaysia-cambodia-and-thailand-trip-summary/

    For me, loving traveling means choosing between new shoes, cars, gadgets and the experience (I’ve been qualified less than 5 yrs- so defs not balling). In a world where my peers are all driving BMWs, I would choose travel any time.
