How to Travel

All the help you need to stop dreaming and start travelling!

If you’re looking for tips on how to travel, from how to get started right through to tips for making the most of your time and money on the road, start here.

It’s been almost 20 years since we left Canada to take our first overseas trip. Since that time, we’ve been to 50 countries, taught yoga in 26, and cycled through 22. We’ve done trips that lasted years, and trips that lasted 24 hours (plus everything in between).

We’ve made a temporary home as expats, residents, and digital nomads in at least a half-dozen countries.

We’ve slept in empty fields, campgrounds, hotels, hostels, guest houses, resorts and other people’s homes more times than we can count. And we’ve eaten at hundreds of different restaurants, cafes, diners, and street stalls, too.

We have a little experience when it comes to this travel stuff! Scroll down to get our best tips on how to get started on your own travel adventure.
