    Penang Cost of Living for 6 Weeks

    Can you believe I stayed in Penang for nearly 45 days? When I was taking care of my accommodation and travel plans before arriving, I actually thought it would be nice to settle for a little bit more than a month for once. I was wrong. 6 weeks felt way too long! I think my ‘travel bug’ sickness isn’t ready to go away yet. I spent my days fairly similar to each other, not much was out of the usual this time around. I’m sharing my Penang cost of living below, but I also previously wrote about a few other places I’ve lived if you’re interested in reading those! As…

    Kuala Lumpur Cost of Living for 1 Month

    If you didn’t know, I’m all about budget travel. Sharing my costs of living while traveling country to country is really exciting for me. First reason being that this is how I can show people that travel can be affordable! For me, it is more cheaper to live abroad rather than in my own home country.

    I recently spent a month in Kuala Lumpur, but I’m not done in Malaysia just yet! Penang is where I’m currently living for the next 45 days.

It always makes me nervous when trying a new route of transportation because the last thing I want to do is miss the departure! Or even worse, when taking a bus or train, missing the destination stop. Personally, I boarded a bus to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Penang. However, flight or train actually would have been my first…

    Malaysia is a Digital Nomad’s Hidden Gem

    You might be wondering what a digital nomad even is? The phrase has been around for many years, but up until recent popularity of the lifestyle, it has resurfaced. It’s the equivalent of being able to work remotely mixed with being a traveler. It’s also referred to as being location independent since you don’t need to rely on a specific place to conduct work. Due to this nature, I’ve found Malaysia to be the ideal destination. Malaysia is the Next Digital Nomad Destination Since my arrival in Kuala Lumpur, I have absolutely fallen in love with this country because it has everything I could ask for in a home base.…
