Slow your Roll: Get a Job

By Travel Drunk, September 13, 2010 11:19 am

Traveling to a new city everyday really starts to wear you down. After a little while you won’t care about going to the museum, seeing a castle, or hiking through a completely unique bit of the globe. If you’re at this point I have one suggestion: do what your father did and get a job, sir (extra points if you get the reference).

The Country Count Debate: Poop or Drink

By Travel Drunk, September 2, 2010 11:04 am

Turkish Tubord toilet There is a growing debate occurring on the internet, at the bar, and mostly in hostel common areas over how to determine if you have really visited a country. Most people, myself included, have stamps in their passports form countries they don’t feel they have really visited. Just last month I travelled by train across Bulgaria, twice, but I didn’t really visit the country.

Getting “Off the Beaten Track”: A Travel Drunk Rant

By Travel Drunk, August 18, 2010 3:34 am

off the beaten track I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard someone say “I just want to get off the beaten track”. Usually the person is a young, American guy, but I’ve heard this come from the mouths of a lot of western European tourists too.

After BA the Travel Drunks went to South Africa. Why South Africa? It was a cheap flight. The best way to find cheap flights, especially if you have a little flexibility in your schedule or destination, is skyscanner.com.

South American Bus Travel, the Easy Way

By Travel Drunk, August 11, 2010 8:00 am

South_America South America is big, really big. But you know this. There are main ways to travel through the continent: fly or by bus. If you’re rich, you should fly, but most of us can’t do it, and a lot of places simply can’t be reached without a long stretch on the bus. After my first 12-hour bus trip I thought there was no way I would get back on a bus, but now I will happily get on a 30-hour bus without thinking twice (ok, that’s a little exaggerated, no one likes 30-hour trips).

I Quit!

By Travel Drunk, November 16, 2009 5:46 pm

I quit my job today, and it feels great. It feels good not because my job is so terrible, but because that means we leave soon. So starts the final countdown: 6 weeks until we leave it all behind.
