Cheapest Places in the World to Drink a Beer

Cheapest Places in the World to Drink a Beer

Let’s face it, everybody enjoys a nice cold beer while on vacation. Sometimes the price is oh, so, sweet, but other times, certain places will leave you feeling guilty for spending your hard earn cash on an over priced beer. When we travel, we take these things into consideration, as we feel its a good gauge as to the price of everything else in the country. Some places have an insanely high cost of drinking,…

Thinking about going on a vacation or traveling to foreign lands? Here’s some advice I learned the hard way… LESS IS MORE!

Travel Alert: NO ATMS on El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

Here’s a little tip, we learned the hard way. There are NO ATMs in El Nido, and many other of the more remote places in the Philippines. Many people travel to Palawan because of the beautiful, utopian islands, and many if not all people who come here, don’t know that there are NO bank machines around for hours. Of course we had our moments of panic. ‘How are we going to eat?’ We managed to…

How we do it…

How we do it…

The first thing people ask is “how can you afford to travel?” Most of the people we encounter – because of the way we travel – are travelers as well. In 2010 we traveled for nearly a year; in 2012 we traveled through Italy, to Prague, Berlin, and into Sweden; in 2013 we traveled to Japan and South Korea; and here we are now in 2014 on another one-way trip around the world with no…

Passport & Documents

Passport & Documents

My most valued possession is my passport. I’m so proud of all the ink stamped into the pages. Feelings of honor and self-gratification overwhelm me when I enter or exit a country. I had to get extra pages sewn into the middle of my passport to add more space and keep me traveling longer. If I lost my passport, or if it got stolen, i’d be crushed! I traveled so far and long to get…

Bohemian Travel Packing

Bohemian Travel Packing

When we, here at ItsBohemian Travel, first started globe-trekking, we packed large travel backpack to the brim, and brought another medium sized sling bag. Once out of the plane and lugging all our belongings, we realized we packed way too much, not even leaving myself room for collectables and gifts.

Travel & Money

Travel & Money

Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer. I get asked by my acquaintances all the time how I manage to travel so often? The answer is simple. I make it a priority. I save some money, do some research, and make it happen. At least once I year I leave my hometown of Washington, DC to travel abroad to experience life outside of the states. Sometimes I’ll spend a month away,…

Hitchhiking Europe

Hitchhiking Europe

We were weary at first. My only prior experience with hitchhiking was not pleasant. After passing a man twice on the road I decided I should give him a lift. The moment he sat down I was overwhelmed with the scent of alcohol and urine; I suppose a closer look during the initial drive-by should have been an indicator, but the man was down on his luck and I was determined to do a good deed….
