    posted a message on How to travel on a budget

    Hey guys!


    It is not a secret that traveling full time is something many people want to do, but only few actually end up doing it. The main reason against it is mostly the high costs than are connected with touring around the world.


    I have traveled through 100 countries and full time for the last 3 years, writing down every single euro in the process and on average just spent 9.563,74 euro per year! That includes everything from flights, food, entrance fees or a local haircut. Considering the fact that I have been to some pretty expensive places such as the Caribbean, West Canada and Greenland, it is a number that could easily be lowered to something like 3.000 euro if you would stay for longer in a cheaper place.


    Now I am always asked the question of how I manage to travel for so long and that's why I took some time to write about it. If you are interested in my top 10 tips on how to travel on a budget, please check out the link below and leave me some feedback in the comments!



    I would also love to hear how much other people spend in a similar situation for instance and perhaps I missed something very important? Thanks so much! :)



    Cheers,
    Chris

    I was driving in the rain through bali's country side when suddenly the clouds opened up and the sun reached this Temple gate, showcasing it in the most amazing light.

    The amazing Ban Gioc Waterfall in Vietnam. It takes a bit of time to get there and China is right on the other side of the river! Totally worth it, one of the best waterfalls I have seen in all of Asia!

    posted a message on 10 Day Voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula

    Hey!


    I would like to share my journey to Antarctica from March 2015. Our small vessel was the last one to depart this season and luckily, we were not stuck in the thicker growing ice! I have also uploaded the video , summarizing the complete trip. I just posted the pictures here, if you like to read about the story, just click on the headline below.


    Ushuaia and Drake Passage, Antarctica



    25/03/2015 After a bit more than two weeks in El Chaltén and El Calafate, it was now finally time to leave Ushuaia and begin my voyage to the coldest, driest and windiest continent of our planet: Antarctica. Not too many people have the opportunity to go there and I felt very privileged to be one of them. Together with around 80 other passengers, we would take two full days to cross the rough waters of the Drake Passage before we would be able to set foot on Antarctica, probably one of the most impressive places that we can visit.

    This next picture features the way down after spending a night on Volcan Santa Maria, I really loved the ambiance at that time and its one of my favorite pictures from that trip. Maybe I should have cut it a bit more on the right side though?!

    This is the best shot of the northern lights i could capture in the pitch black darkness with a tripod I had never used before and after a long rum-coke session waiting for the clouds to disappear.. haha. Maybe you got some better shots? =)

    Playa Madame in the Dominican Republic. Takes a but of hiking to get there but it's certainly worth having a beach like that for your own!
