How Two Canadians are travelling the world cheaply.
Last weekend we were profiled on Postmedia newspapers – the article below was published in the Vancouver Sun, Toronto Sun and Edmonton Journal. It is entitled “How Two Canadians are travelling the world cheaply”. We were thrilled to get such Canada-wide coverage.
You can click above to see any of the online versions. Otherwise I’ve included a copy of the article below.
A few background articles to “How Two Canadians are travelling the world cheaply”
In the article I refer to some places and events. I’m linking a few articles for those looking for a bit more detail on various aspects of our travels.
On living a year in Croatia. We had visited Croatia 3 times and decided we wanted to stay longer. We even entertained the idea of working towards Permanent Residency. Anyone even thinking of staying a year in Croatia should have a look at this post on how to get Temporary Residence in Croatia. In the end, extending past 1 year wasn’t for us and we wrote about it: the complications of working towards permanent residency in Croatia.
My 2 years as a child expat covers the years I lived in Zambia and how the experience changed me.
Random acts of Kindness when you travel covers some of the incredible generosity we’ve encountered travelling, including my story about meeting those two men in Sarajevo.
A recurring theme is how we travel. We’re “slow travellers”, usually staying somewhere at least a month. A post here on what slow travel is and why it’s how we travel.
Downs and Ups in Eastern Europe. I mention our negative experience in Poland. I wrote about that in detail here: Why a month in Poland was enough for us not to come back. We then went to Ukraine, which we loved. Lviv was our highlight destination in 2018, I questioned here whether it’s Europe’s most underrated city. We then went to Kiev (Kyiv) which really impressed us. About Kyiv and its attractions here.
I also mentioned being “taxed” in Marrakech in this post: My 5 week Morocco itinerary. And on dealing with liars, scammers and bullshit. Morrocco is beautiful (and I’ll probably be back with Lissette one day) but I have a love/hate relationship with it.
I mention solo trips and “El Chepe” in Northern Mexico. I wrote about it here: Why Riding El Chepe through Copper Canyon is just mind-blowingly amazing. I saw a lot of beauty. North Americans should discover more of Mexico – my mom lives in Mexico and I’ve been lucky enough to discover much of the country over the last 6 years.
There are quite a lot of destinations I mention in “How Two Canadians are travelling the world cheaply”, they can easily be found under the destinations tab above.
