Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step into a different world? What if you could travel the world while saving money and time? How about staying in one place for five months? If that sounds crazy, then check out my new blog called Five Months Abroad. It’s a detailed account of my journey as I explored four different countries over the course of five months.
If you’re reading this blog post, chances are you were planning a trip to Thailand. If you were, then you should be extremely happy with your decision. Thailand is like no other country I’ve ever visited. It’s lush and tropical, yet also extremely modern and clean.
The smells and sounds of Thailand are unlike any other country I’ve ever been to. The food is amazing. Thai food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world, and for good reason. It’s all about balance. Sweet, sour, spicy, and herbal all come together in an explosion of flavor that leaves you feeling satiated and full of energy.
If you don’t like spicy food, prepare to sweat a lot. But spicy food lovers, don’t worry, you will get used to it! If you’re traveling to Thailand for a few weeks or longer, you should also consider taking some Thai language classes.
Thai is a tonal language, so the written word and pronunciations differ a lot from English. That is also a very complex language with a ton of loanwords from Indian and Chinese. Learning a few Thai words and phrases will help you make friends and feel like a local much faster.
Singapore is one of those places I’ve read so much about, but never actually experienced. I had heard so many great things about it, I’d be lying if I said I was honestly intrigued. It’s a tiny island country between two huge nations, India and Indonesia, which makes it a bit of a strange place to visit.
But I still felt compelled to go there. I didn’t know what to expect. But once I was there, I soon realized why everyone raves about Singapore so much. It’s this incredible mix of Asian culture and modernity that is just fascinating. The architecture is very modern, but also incorporates Asian designs and aesthetics.
It’s definitely a very unique place to see. I was also surprised by how much I liked Singapore. It’s not one of those places I would have ever chosen to visit on my own, but it ended up being my favorite place of the entire trip. If you’re planning a trip to Singapore and you aren’t sure what to see or do, you should definitely check out some of these great resources: – Visit Singapore Tourism’s website and start planning your trip to Singapore.
They have awesome city guides and recommendations for things to do and see while in Singapore. – For food, I suggest reading this guide to find the best Singaporean food abroad. – If you want to learn more about Singapore’s history and culture, you should definitely check out Singapore: A History.
India is one of those places I’ve read a ton about, but never actually experienced. I’d heard so many great things, I’d be lying if I said I was truly intrigued. But once I was there, I quickly realized why everyone loves it so much. It’s a fascinating mix of modern and traditional culture.
The sights and smells of India are unlike any other place, and I was really happy I got to see it for myself. If you’re planning a trip to India, you’ll need to be prepared for some serious heat. The summers can get uncomfortably hot, and the winters are freezing.
And if you’re planning to visit India in the monsoon season, be prepared for some serious flooding. But if you can handle a little bit of discomfort while you’re there, you’ll be richly rewarded. India has so much to see and do.
You can spend your time exploring the ancient ruins of places like Bodh Gaya and Hampi, or you can go see some of the more modern sights like the Taj Mahal and Golden Temple. The food in India is all kinds of amazing, too. And if you’re a beer lover, be sure to try out some of the local brews.
Ecuador: The high life in the Andes
If you’ve ever wanted to visit a place that feels like a completely new world, then Ecuador is the place for you. The country is also one of the most eco-friendly destinations in the world. I’m not going to lie to you, though. Ecuador is a seriously tough place to visit. The people, the architecture, and the sights are all breathtaking. The truth is, you will come away from that experience changed forever.
But if you’re up for it, then Ecuador is the place for you. It’s a bit like traveling to another planet. The people are very relaxed and friendly, and the architecture is breathtakingly beautiful. And if you’re lucky, you will get to visit the Galapagos Islands during your trip. That is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Costa Rica: Paradise found?
Costa Rica might have been my favorite place on the entire trip. Like Thailand, Costa Rica is a country that feels like it hasn’t been discovered by a lot of people. With its tropical climate, lush landscapes, amazing wildlife, and great people, it’s easy to see why. And if you’re looking for a place to visit that is affordable, has great food, and is full of adventure and culture, then Costa Rica is a great place for you.
Costa Rica has some of the most incredible biodiversity in the world. You can go see hundreds of different types of plants, animals, and fish right on the beaches. You can even walk through volcanoes and experience the rainforest while you’re there.
The food in Costa Rica is also some of the best I’ve ever tried. It’s very healthy and full of flavor, and it’s very affordable. If you’re planning a trip to Costa Rica, you should definitely get a Spanish-speaking friend to help you navigate. It will save you a lot of time and money.
Mexico: Bartering and more!
If you’re planning a trip to Mexico, then you should definitely take my advice and visit the markets. There’s nothing like exploring a local market to get a glimpse of what life is like in another country. You can talk to people, explore new cultures, and learn a lot about the history and customs of the people you meet.
I really didn’t know what to expect when I first went to a market in Mexico. I was very overwhelmed and felt like I didn’t know what to do. But if you act like a tourist and explore the market, you will fit right in. It’s important to remember that Mexico is a very friendly and welcoming country.
It felt very welcoming to me, and I felt like I belonged there. If you’re planning a trip to Mexico, you should definitely get there before the tourist rush. A lot of people recommend going in late September or early October, but I think that’s too late since most people will be visiting during those months.
I think it’s better to go soon during spring or summer when it’s less crowded. I also suggest renting a car while you’re there so you can explore on your own and have a better time.
