When you travel abroad, particularly when you’re backpacking you don’t want to be tied down to one particular area or idea. Instead, you want to have the freedom to go where you want and do what you want. For many travelers this isn’t possible. The way they book their holiday means that they have to be in one place at a certain time. Others have specific itineraries or where to sleep, eat and what activities to do on any given day. For people traveling as a family or with kids, this might be great. It could take a lot of the stress out of the holiday. But what about for those people traveling alone. Surely, they want more freedom and excitement. Well, here’s the answer.
Get A Long Visa
The first thing you need to think about is the visa. If you’re traveling abroad, you can still get a visa for a vacation or holiday rather than business. But you can also get an extended visa. These are a little more tricky to obtain. But if you can get one it will certainly be worth it. It will allow you more freedom to travel to more places and participate in many more activities. You can arrange your visa online and make sure you tell them this is purely entertainment, not business. Otherwise, they’ll be checking your employment history as well.
Hire A Car
You don’t want to rely on transport available in your chosen location. This might severely limit where you can go. Particularly, if you want to travel out of the city limits and away from popular tourist destinations. Instead, you should hire a car, and this will give you all the freedom you need. Make sure you look at a car hire quote online to ensure that you’re not paying a fortune for this service. You’ll be able to keep the car until the end of the holiday, and the best part is most damage is covered. You won’t have to pay an additional fee.
Log Your Blog
If you’re thinking about staying in an area for longer, you will need to make money while you’re there. The best way to do this is with a travel blog. That way you can fund your vacation without working a proper job. Every evening you can simply update your blog with new activities and experiences. By doing this, you’ll grab the attention of a lot of readers who will be interested in your stories. You can then start to make money off your holiday.
Last but not least, rather than booking a hotel, I suggest you go camping for the entire duration of your stay. This means that you won’t have to stay in a specific location. You can go anywhere you want. Buy a quality tent before you travel and make sure that it comes with a thick travel bag. You don’t want it getting lost or damaged on your trip. You don’t need to worry about carrying it around because as soon as you get to the airport, you’ll have your car.
