So you’ve got time. And you’ve been bitten by the travel bug. You’re thinking of getting out of your rut, but where?

Here’s a few ways that can help you reach a decision:

  1. Skyscanner. Did you know that you can input “Everywhere” on Skyscanner‘s search engine? With your chosen country of departure and travel period, Skyscanner shows you all the different destinations in the world you can go with their lowest prices, opening up your possibilities to destinations you never knew. If you can’t decide on the dates to go, you have the option of choosing “Whole month”!

  2. Look for friends living in the local area. You might probably be able to get a travel companion or even be offered a place to stay (like I did in Bristol and Ulm)! In turn, you may turn out to visit a beautiful town that you’d never considered or even known about.

  3. Festivals/ Carnivals/ Parties happening in that period you’re travelling. Events like that spice up the entire town and you absorb more cultural immersion this way!

3. Cheap deals on various transportations websites. Sign up for their newsletters! Regional trains around Europe include SNCFTrenitalia or Thalys. Budget air flights around Asia include Scoot, Jetstar and AirAsia.

4. Speak to people who’ve been there, done that!

  1. Read travel blogs or Pinterest or be inspired by travel quotes. More often than not they’ll turn out to be your sources of travel inspiration! Some of my bookmarked travel bloggers include Travel? Yes Please, A Cruising Couple, Adventurous Kate, Just One Way Ticket and Whitney Blake.

Life is short. The world is vast. Don’t settle! 🙂
