Our Year of Travel

Summary: one year of travel, check out where we’ve been, how we travelled, the highlights of our trip, our ups and downs. Here we are, celebrating our first year of traveling around the world—our first year of continuous travel and adventure. Time flew by so quickly! One year ago I was still living in Toronto and Bassel was in Cairo finishing his paperwork. We agreed to meet in the mythical city of New York, where we started our trip. During this first year of travel—with the exception of some small details—we stuck to our original plan, which was to do the United States, two countries in South America (Ecuador and Bolivia), and later Europe (France specifically)....

On the Road Expenses and Statistics, Month Eight

Is it expensive to travel around the world? How much would you spend while traveling? This series of posts is aimed at helping travelers plan their budgets before hitting the road. When we started traveling we were always worrying about how much money we would need, so we decided to share our expenses, as this might help other travelers. Our eighth month of travel was for sure one of the best months we have had in our ongoing journey around the world. During the first 10 days of the month we were still in the gorgeous islands of the Galapagos, and just before leaving we decided to visit a different island. Therefore, we left for San Cristobal—the land of the smiley and...

On The Road Expenses and Statistics, Month Nine

Is it expensive to travel around the world? How much would you spend while traveling? This series of posts is aimed at helping travelers plan their budgets before hitting the road. When we started traveling we were always worrying about how much money we would need, so we decided to share our expenses, as this might help other travelers. Our ninth month of travel was definitely one of the most active so far! First of all, we moved a lot. Second, we tried some physical activities and sports that were new for us (as we usually only walk or swim, and sometimes climb [but not very much!]) So it was kind of a challenge for our lazy bodies! But we survived! This month was...

Lying on the white sands, sunbathing with marine iguanas after a swim with reef sharks, and being surrounded by blue-footed boobies and lots of other different birds. Yes baby, we are still in the Galapagos! We spent our seventh month of travel on the island of Santa Cruz in the Galapagos. We had originally planned to stay in the...

Now we have completed our first six months on the road. Prior to this week we were still in Rurrenabaque in the Amazonian basin of Bolivia,– where we celebrated our marriage anniversary....

Statistics from Six Months of Travel

Posted by on Feb 18, 2013 in Monthly Expenses | 0 comments

A detailed post about our first six months on the road—expenses and statistics from our around-the-world journey. Well, six months of our journey around the world have passed—six months traveling from one place to the other, jumping between hotels, hostels, private apartments or CouchSurfing here and there. Between when we started (with losing my bags in NY subway actually!) and now (planning for the next stage of our travels), we hardly even realized that we’ve been on the road for six months. Crazy how time flies! We have enjoyed our travels and sightseeing, but a big part of our joy has been from the friends we have made: fellow travelers we met along the way,...

After few weeks of doing almost nothing but working and eating in Cochabamba, it was time for us to hit the road again and search for our next location....

When we started traveling we always had the worry about how much money we would need—so we’ve decided to share our expenses, as this might help other travelers. Our fourth month has been all about relaxing—very laid back. It also contained a few unexpected and unplanned events. It all started after our second night in Cochabamba, when we discovered that there would be a curfew the next morning and we could not go out or else we would get arrested. What?! Yes, it was the census day in...
