I am somebody who loves travelling – discovering new places, learning fascinating things about those places and meeting interesting people. Like most keen travellers, this means having to balance this with working to earn the money to visit these places. Until recently this was a dilemma for me – how to travel frequently enough to fuel my passion, but work enough to fund it: how to travel on a time budget. Then, after a short weekend away, I realised that with a bit of planning and organisation, anything is possible.
So 2016 was the year I experimented with this and found that I was able to visit 10 different places with just my annual leave allowance, plus a few bank holidays thrown in. It is true that you have to be really organised, and at times creative (see my “top tips” ), but once you start, you’ll be amazed at how many places you can see in a short time.
This blog highlights some of the interesting things I have seen and done whilst travelling on a time budget. Whilst I try at times to flag some of the main sights worth seeing, I realise that there are many blogs that already do this. So I’m trying here to hone in on something that, for me, was one of the stand-outs from my short time in these places. I hope I have achieved this, but please do let me know if you have any thoughts on my posts. Likewise, if you have any suggestions for other destinations to visit on a time budget, please get in touch.
Thank you for visiting my blog – I hope my posts have given you some inspiration. Happy travelling!
