Writing blog posts isn’t exhausting, but sometimes the thought of it is. I’ve been exhausted myself these past few weeks — with the unexpected travel, the Birds of Prey Ski races — working and spectating them — my mom traveling to visit me for the weekend, and my entire schedule being turned on end.
So it’s not the blog post that’s exhausting, but the thought of doing it almost feels like the straw that broke the camel’s back this week.
But luckily! Here I am with some travel tips for those on a tight budget. I book marked this page late last week and I’m glad I did because now I have something easy and useful to present to you.
Hostelworld is one of my favorite places to book international accomodations. The setup is easy, user friendly, simple and quick — while offering cheap accomodations and cheap protection so that you retain your money to use again on their site should you not be able to make your trip. I can’t tell you how many times this website, their prices and their reservation protection, helped keep my budget intact while I was studying abroad.
Last week Hostelworld published this article about traveling on a budget which offers some simple tricks to help you make the most out of your budget so you can explore as far and as wide as possible on this big green earth. For example — Travel Tuesday isn’t just alliteration and a kitschy hashtag, it’s also traditionally the cheapest day to fly!
Check out the article and comment about what travel destinations you’ve set your sights on for 2019. Maybe I’ll pick one to write about next week!
