I always wanted to try this form of traveling. Living in a camper van. Finally, we did it!
Is it a real thing, that people ride campervans around New Zealand?
Hell yeah! You would be surprised how commonly is. Now it’s quite a low season, but still, tons of vans are on the road. I can’t even imagine what’s the situation when it’s actually warm, and high season.
I know, there are times when you have no money at all to travel, or even for a long weekend somewhere. I was in this situations not even just once. The question is, what we can do in this situation? Walking with closed eyes on the street avoiding to see any of those tempting advertisement about spending the long weekend in Paris. Deleting all the friends on Facebook, who’s laying at the beach at the moment?
The answer: NO, not at all, do the opposite!
Whatever you want to reach, you need to pay attention to it. Start to train your conscious, that You gonna travel! Because first You need to believe in it!
I remember, a couple of years ago I said to someone that I will teach yoga one day in Thailand at the beach in a nice open bungalow. What was the reaction? Laugh…and of course, I got uncertain about what I just said. But it wasn’t a joke. Today, I can certainly say, with a small amount of organizing I know I could do it. And that feeling is the best one on the world. I know when we want to reach something, we start to work for it, believe in it, it needs to be a success. But I didn’t believe in this for so long!
What can You do to reach your dream to travel?
There are situations when a car would be handy to take you home. You are abroad without a car, or you don’t even have a car, it’s night and you don’t want to take the risk using the public transport. Of course there are the taxi companies, but they charge you with a crazy amount of money…I don’t even talk about being a foreigner, because then you might be tricked with double, triple of the normal price.
There is a cheaper option, and this is Uber! I met this app in Los Angeles, we were about leaving a club at 2 am, and a car showed up and took us home, even stopped at a burger place to get some takeaway food. What a nice driver was! In the United States it’s a really famous application, and you can use it in almost every city.
Here is some q&a, and some useful tips about Uber! It’s gonna be super easy to travel in a cheap way around the big cities!
