Time flies like a bullet. I got shot again realizing it. I just can’t believe it’s that time of year again! Can you believe it? It’s the last month of the end once again. Although I get this feeling as if everything has just started, I know it’s the perfect time to get to summarize and plan forward about things and stuffs. Right, yes, agree?

I say to everyone who reads this: fear not. Don’t feel stumped. Don’t feel envious. Don’t feel broke. Don’t feel desperate. History and experience proves that TRAVEL and BUDGET have their own unique relationship like no other. They are compatible and they can work with each other without making any of them suffer the consequences. And planning a year of travel is no exception, if you know that budget is on your side.

Yes every scenario is different, every challenge is a challenge, but the bullet proof formula for a successful travel is of course: plan + budget + travel. No matter how tricky it gets, no matter how hard it seems, no matter what your excuse may be – if you have a plan + budget + travel experience in mind, everything will work out to your advantage. As Paulo Coelho puts it, the universe will conspire to help you achieve your travel conquests. Want it bad enough and they universe will force itself to give it to you. LOL

I’d let you in a tip: plan a year of travel.

Normally, I’d gun for 4 countries a year. Absurd? Maybe. Impossible? No. What I normally do, since I’m all for budget travels and adventure countries, I’d nitpick a country from the long list here in Asia.

Then from their I would schedule one year per quarter, and the last country would normally be the most “expensive” among the list, so that I am sure that I’ll be able to save money and leaves for it - since normally, there are a lot of holidays during the last 2 quarters of the year.

See, easy! Let’s not go into detail yet but let this serve as a bullet in your brain, to trigger and inspire you to plan and take action. A year of travel is possible. Plan because time flies so fast and life is too short to wait wait wait. Travel to different cities, save the lifetime experiences, and immortalize happiness. Everything starts with a plan.
