In today’s show, Craig and Linda express the itchiness of their feet and desperate need to hit the road again. At the same time, there’s plenty of work to be done in preparation! This show gives you a good overview of the practical aspects of preparing for long-term travel.
Preparing to travel includes…
- Health checks, first aid kits and vaccinations.
- Passports, visas and red tape.
- Selling stuff and downsizing.
- What to pack for travel.
- Doing a travel budget and saving for travel.
And now for something completely different.
Passports with purpose
Passports with Purpose is an awesome travel blog charity fundraiser which was started last year. Travel bloggers work together to find sponsorship and raise funds for a charity, led by these awesome women. This year, our goal is to raise US$13,000 to build a school in Cambodia (through an approved US-based charity). The fundraising lasts until December 21 and the community has already raised over US$10,000!
For each $10 you donate, you can elect to go into the draw for one of many great prizes supplied by travel bloggers and the travel companies they’ve roped into taking part. We were sad we couldn’t afford to contribute anything this year, but look forward to doing so in the future.
Please donate to Passports with Purpose this year (and good luck on the prize draws).
