How to Travel in 2015: A Guide

I love the potential and promise that comes with each new year. You know, before you’ve had time to mess things up with laziness and bad decisions.

So before atrophy takes over and you end up parked in front of the couch, make your travel goals now. Where are you going in 2015? How are you going to get there? Not just physically, but mentally and financially.

No matter what your financial, geographical or personal situation, there is some way you can incorporate more travel into your life. So, I wrote you a guide.

Or rather, a compilation of the many resources already on this site. This is a re-tooling of a post I wrote back in 2013. Since then there have been many new articles, and many new readers, so it seemed time to print a new syllabus for you guys on how to make this your Year of Travel.

    Great idea to put all these posts together. It’s always good to plan your travels right at the start of the year, as you said. I’ll be looking at the savings ones first! 🙂

    What an incredible resource! I’ll be bookmarking this for the future.

    Currently planning a big trip to India and SE Asia. I already bought the 1 way ticket so I need to get crackin’ 😉

    I shouldn’t have looked at this first thing in the morning…now there are too many posts I want to read!

    Thanks Steph! This is the year I take a career break – this post came at a perfect time!

    Studying abroad is probably the coolest thing I missed out on when I was in school. It’s the ultimate way to see the world while you’re young, and still get educated at the same time. I encourage anyone who can afford it to do it for a semester or more!

    I talk to a lot of customers while at work and they are studying abroad and they come all around the world. Very smart thing to do.

    What a great guide. The last years I have been travel full time. However, in 2014, I wanted to travel much more than I did. I hope that this year I will be able to travel much more, and will for sure have this guide in back of my head for make it happen 🙂

    Awesome guide! I have some reading to do 🙂

    Great post of all your tips – and I loved your point about starting out the year right before laziness and bad decisions kick in – haha. First up for us is the Philippines and some travel around the US. 🙂

    Not bad tips at all! Great source of info. I personally think flying into a hub and then splitting the costs with friends to surrounding countries is a great way to go. You definitely can’t travel too much when you’re young!!

    Every start of an year is a perfect time to sit and to think how to optimize the travels during the year. There are a lot of new places to visit during the upcoming 12 months and the better the planning, the better the experience.

    Thanks 🙂 I gotta read all the articles you have posted here.
    This year I want to travel much more and see new things. It’s just so difficult when studying AND working. But I’m going to travel every time I get the chance this year. 🙂
