I'm On a Cheap Trip
Hello there, I am Abhishek --Travel blogger, photographer and software engineer by profession who’s been exploring the world for over 5 years, with no plans to stop anytime soon.
Welcome to my travel blog! This is the place where I share entertaining stories, helpful travel tips, and amazing photography. It’s a place for an individual like you who are searching for daily inspiration & motivation to live a life full of adventure.
Friends!!! Collect Moments Not Things
In my early life, I was never a big traveler but was always excited to see places wherever my parents used to take me. When I started my job life, I was exceptionally committed towards my work. Months passed on working and working and literally all my social life was to a halt. As time passed on, frustration started building. Thoughts like what the hell I was doing with my life. What was the use of all the earnings, if I can not use it for my own mental satisfaction?
Most of the people are into a race of earning huge money and what they are using it for? Just to build a terrace to sleep!!! Work for years and years and keep paying bank loans just to build a house and buy some transport machines. I know many will not be willing from my perspective, but that's what my thinking has become now. I don't want to ruin my worthy life into all this. I am no more interested in saving just for collecting physical structures. I dreamed of more — a life filled with adventure. I want to explore this beautiful planet earth, spend time with different people and learn about their cultures, enjoy a variety of food and visit many places.
How Do I Manage My Trip Expenses
Many friends ask me being an average salaried Software Engineer, how do I manage all this--
- How do I find the money to travel? It seems too expensive for me.
- “Where do I find good travel deals?”
- “How do I plan my trip?”
- “How do I save money on flights, accommodation, and other big expenses?”
I know there are various blogs to answer such queries but mine is a little different. Many people avoid traveling as they think it would be very expensive and just one or two trips can ruin all their savings. Also if you check various packages provided by the travel agency, almost all are very expensive and not worthwhile at all. The main objective why I am writing all these blogs is to help people in finding out the cheapest way to manage their trips without pre-booking any tour packages and hotels at all. Also, I assure you that you don't have to compromise with the scenic beauty you are about to experience with such cheap trips.

I Do Travelling Differently
You know why I am able to do a hell lot of traveling. The only reason behind is avoiding luxury. I sleep in dorms and budget hotels, use public transport wherever possible, try those roadside street stalls, and avoid hiring cars/taxis instead prefer walking. I try making locals friends and look for a homestay, use Google maps effectively to visit more places with fewer distances to cover. The only objective of my trips is to enjoy the nature and grasp memories of some breathtaking views.
To all my readers (especially those who comment regularly), this travel blog wouldn’t be what it is today without you. Thank you so much for reading!
