Budget Travel Notes Introduction

by admin on January 21, 2010

When you come back from a trip are you surrounded by notes and scribbles in notebooks, on magazines, in your phone and elsewhere with details of places you’ve been, cheap ways to do things and much much more?

No?  Ok, maybe it’s only me.  I’m passionate about travel but normally end up with these notes scattered around various notebooks and backpacks and the little nuggets of information in them end up unviewed and worthless.

This site will become a glorified place for these notes.  It’s the intention to appeal to all travellers, but with a definite slant towards budget travellers – whether that means a backpacker, a career breaker, or someone at the upper end who just wants to save money on their one week break.  It could be a place to visit, a new way of travel networking, websites of use, or good gadgets or gear to help your life on the road (or plane / train / boat!).

There’s three principles I just made up :

  • Get value for money (that’s not be a tight arse, I’d just rather stay for 2 weeks than 1!)
  • Find out about local cultures and communities (that could be as simple as knowing not to put your feet up on the chair in front of you so as not to offend!)
  • Travel responsibly – if you wouldn’t trash your own place, don’t litter when you’re away – that kinda thing.

There you go.  That’s it for now.  I hope the future posts will speak for themselves.

Give me a while to make the site more appealing, and please feel free to subscribe to the feed!

Happy Travels.
