    Instagrammable Destinations to Add to Your Bucket List

    Did you know that 2/5th’s of millennials actually choose their holiday destinations based on how ‘Instagrammable’ they are? I came across a survey that was conducted by Schofields Insurance about this topic and I thought the results were pretty surprising! The insurance company surveyed over 1,000 people between the ages of 18 and 33. They simply asked what is their number one motivator for choosing a holiday destination. The concern of how Instagrammable the destination is was the number one response. What shocked me was that people are willing to choose a city based upon how many great photos they can take; rather than immersing themselves in the culture. These…

    Travel the World for Less than $10,000 a Year

    Many people think to travel the world is a luxury and that it is very expensive, I even believed it was. However, I am in shock of the comparison between my cost of living in America versus hopping country to country. This post was originally going to be based around traveling the world for $12,000 in a year; that’s $1,000 a month. Then I did the math of my own expenses and found it to be even lower. To my surprise, even lower than $10,000. Yes, you read that correctly, LESS than $10,000! Since I have readers from all around the globe, here’s a few conversions for a point of…

    How to Get Almost Free Drinkable Water in Thailand

    You may be concerned about the water quality in Thailand. Questions like, “can I drink the tap water” or “can I even cook with it” may arise during your stay. Upon arriving to my Airbnb in Bangkok, my host informed me that I should not drink the water or cook with it.

However, that amount can easily add up over time…
