I suddenly have a new found passion and love for travel. I’m not sure whether that stems from age, a longing for a more fulfilled life or the need to experience new things, nevertheless, this is where I am. I travel a lot for work, which is mostly international throughout Africa, my love for travel has most likely also rooted from my job enabling me to see the world and when the travel bug hits, it hits you hard.
I have one holiday planned for the last week in June to celebrate a special birthday and I am already onto planning the next few holidays. I was once fortunate enough to see Cape Town but only spent 28 hours in the beautiful City. So my first stop and next planned trip has to be Cape Town. August is my anniversary month and I would love to explore all the things I didn’t get to see in my short time in Cape Town. So nothing sounds better than a five year anniversary celebration in the Mother City.
We somehow chose the best month to get married, it must have been written in the stars because it so happens that August is one of the cheapest months to fly domestically within South Africa. With this in mind, the anniversary saving is about to start and being the penny wise woman that I am, always looking for the best deal, I will be ensuring that I book our flights early to avoid higher prices and less choice.
Once we have seen the Mother City, next up on our bucket list is an International trip which will most likely land us in Thailand. I have heard that October is the best time to visit Thailand with it being the cooler period in the year. I am planning our international getaway for next year in October, for my 29th birthday. I need a reasonable amount of time to save as I want to make the most out of this once in a lifetime trip. Island hopping, hiking, street food and sun downer cruises sound like a good way to start saying goodbye to my twenties. So stick with me as I take you along this journey to seeing the world on a budget.
