Ever wanted to experience living abroad? If you have no commitments holding you back, now could be the time to give it a go. Living abroad allows you to travel whilst earning money making it suitable for people on all budgets – getting there and back may be the only cost you need to save up for. One of the biggest factors to consider when living abroad is where you will stay. You ideally want accommodation that’s inexpensive allowing you leftover money to spend in your free time on exploration. Here are just a few alternative ways to experience the thrill of living abroad.
The historic city of Angers is in western France. Situated in the Loire Valley it is a popular place to use as a base to explore the surrounding areas. But visiting a city can really tug on your purse strings which is why I have tried and tested these 10 free things to do in Angers, France. It’s just a train ride away from Paris and London; it is well worth visiting even if just to see its Gothic Angevin architecture style. Angers was the fourth city I visited on my grand tour of Europe where I lived and slept in my car.
The opportunity to travel is one that everybody should have. Seeing the world is something that can open your eyes to different cultures, beautiful places, and fascinating pieces of history. Of course, whilst you may want to travel, you may not think that you have the resources to travel cheap. You only have so much money in the bank and you can only take so much time off work. How will you possibly see the world?
On the 26th November 2016, I boarded a flight at Manchester Airport. On the 27th November, I landed in Seoul, South Korea. Today marks one year of travel and what a year of travel it has been! One year on and I am at home again. Not to stay but on a visit and to drop off my Camping Car after a summer in Europe before heading once again on a long haul flight.
I was asked by my sister-in-law if I ever got homesick. Well what you are going to read about my year of travel will make you understand why I don’t. With people all over the world welcoming me into their lives and making their house my home. How can I?

The adventure traveller is not one to settle for the usual activities when it comes to travelling to different places around the world. If you happen to be one such thrill seeker who is looking for something to do during your travels that not a lot of people have done yet, then visiting a cave is precisely the kind of activity you’re looking for.
Right now, it might feel like the summer is a long way away but many people are already making plans about where they’re going to spend the most glorious months of the summer in 2018. There’s nothing wrong with getting ready early and being prepared, in fact it’s what more people should be doing right about now. However, those preparations have to involve a little more than finding the best flights, great accommodation and handing over the money. If you want everything to go to plan and to culminate in an enjoyable and memorable trip, you need to know how to get prepared properly and fully; that’s what we’re going to help you with.
City breaks are a wonderful way to see the world and discover different cultures. Short breaks are an increasingly popular holiday option, as they’re easy to plan and you can take advantage of inexpensive flights. There’s also an incredibly diverse range of options available. Even if you feel like you’re a seasoned traveller, there are bound to be concrete jungles out there that haven’t yet been explored. If you’re an urban adventurer and you’ve already ticked the major players off your list, here are some next-level locations to inspire you.
If you’re a traveller who seeks out cultural experiences and fast-paced adventures then you probably know that the best destinations to visit are cities. Manmade jungles can offer just as much beauty as natural ones. You get to experience a land which might be foreign and new to you but in an incredibly compact manner. If you want to pack as many experiences into a short journey as possible then there’s no better way to do so than by visiting the bustling streets of a popular city.
Eating out alone is something I would never do at home. However, life as a solo traveller means that I have had to get used to it. Unless I forever wanted to find a friend, eat at my accommodation or make a packed lunch, I have had to toughen up. Now it is second nature when travelling but would I be as confident doing it at home? No!
There’s not one person that doesn’t spend time checking out the best bargains for city breaks while they’re at work. It’s the number one pastime when stuck in a stuffy office full of people! Planning out a city break instead of the usual beach or country location isn’t easy, and that’s mainly because of the sheer choice available to you as a traveller. Your chosen trip away doesn’t have to be one that replaces a hot beach holiday, but when you want to break up those long winter months, a mid-week trip to the city can be just what you need; especially in the run up to Christmas! There’s nothing more exciting than having something to look forward to, and a city break is the ticket to adventure.
