Today’s world is really getting smaller. A trip around the world (13 stops) could cost
$1385 USD with visa fees, stopover fees some exclusive, according to secretflying. A cruise from Portugal to Brazil for 10 days all inclusive costs 290euro while you can still study Spanish or Portugal in the boat. A round trip from Kuala Lumpur to Copenhagen costs only $438 USD with Thailand Airliane. Promotions for Perth to London return trip costs $907; Los Angles to Portland $86 return by American airline; Well, budget airlines in Europe, they call it Airbus offers even cheaper deals from Hamberg to Norwegian cities.
In China, buget airline even has payment options by third party, which costs 2rmb per month for interest, such as a flight to Japan, it allows to charge 34rmb per month for a year. Deals from Spring air such as a trip from Ningbo to Nagoyo, Japan costs 9rmb plus tax, total 379rmb. For small investment, you can all the way around Asian countries. Now you wonder why so many Chinese are busy with work, kids, family, they could not find time to travel.
Couchsurfing in Nagoyo, you could find many international travelers who had 100 references and traveled lots of countries already. You can find English speaking Japanese or couples who had traveled a lot and like to accept you as a Guest.
True, you could have a busy life, as I say, you still have choices for your income, lifestyle, kids education, family outings. Some can travel just out of the house gate and enjoy a free walk and a simple picnic, a cheap outing does not cost any money, you can wrap up your own food and drink. It involves personal time management and efforts to make life work better.
While I booked a resort room in Vietnam, I encourage my dear friends to go out and have their family time, and I could provide free trip ideas for them. A room costs only $12 per day for 2 persons, I highly recommend my dear friends to enjoy this benefit with me. Nothing beats up actions and experience. Life is full of surprises and adventures!
