Round The World Contests, Advice & More

Now available for Kindle! Only $9.99

Today’s post is through our friends BootsnAll Travel, who have two great things worth sharing with you this week.

First of all is their fantastic Around the World Travel Contest, which is also sponsored by Go Nomad, Transitions Abroad and many other of our favorite travel resources. The Indie Travel Media Association is giving away the ultimate traveler’s treat – an around the world trip with a plane full of prizes that include airfare, hotels, spending money, gear and much more.

Spanning 8 weeks, each week a different clue is revealed, and you enter to win by guessing the city that the clues point to. It’s pretty easy, folks. Click here for more details.

BootsnAll also has a great article just published, on what it really costs to travel the world. In How Much Money Do You Really Need to Travel? Adam Seper outlines much of our same philosophy, saying:

By traveling slowly and not trying to do too much, you’ll not only prevent the dreaded travel burnout, but your money will last much, much longer.

It all depends on how you want to do it.  But one thing’s for sure, if travel is top priority in your life, you can make it happen.  “I can’t afford it” is not a valid excuse.  It all depends on how much you want to make it happen.

Want more in-depth details on how to travel on little to nothing, including how to work home exchanges, bartering, frequent flier miles and much more? Then snag a copy of our book, How To Travel for Free (or pretty damn near it!). And it’s just been released for Kindle as well, for only $9.99. What are you waiting for? The world awaits!


About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
