Long term travel has been our dream ever since we have met. A lot of people keep asking us how we afford to keep travelling the world. In short, you need to stay focused to achieve that number one goal and you have to know your WHY. It might not seem to be easy for some people, but if you are truly passionate about it, you keep pushing until you’ve got what you want. We have put together a list of resources that helped us tremendously setting up for our long term travels.
Anton Kriel (this is how we learned about building infrastructure)
Barefoot investor (the fasted way to eliminate debt)
ING (fee free banking for Australians only/other options available for US and EU citizens)
Tony Robbins (goal setting expert)
Booking the tickets (sets a date - Parkinson's Law)
Delayed gratification (saving mula)
Daily routine (our secret ingredient)
Gratitude challenge (keeping your chin up)
Kerwin Rae Videos (motivation)
Gary Vee Crushing It (execution)
Facebook Support Group (help)
Upskill (IDF, Udemy)
1 Anton Kriel
He is a mentor from the UK that lives in Singapore and educates people on financial investments.
2 The Barefoot Investor
This is one of Australia's best selling books and again, it is about investing but it is a great read and easily digestible.
ING is a fee free bank meaning that you can travel anywhere in the world, withdraw money and have no fees attached to it. (This is for Australians only - in our eBook we explore other options for EU and US citezens.
4 Tony Robbins
The name does not need any introduction. His exercises for great action enabled us to get in the right frame of mind to make the necessary decisions.
We won't attempt to reinterpret this great work. If you google Tony Robbins 6 basic human needs you should be able to get a good enough explanation of the above. The audio book that worked the best for us is MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom.
5 Parkinson's Law
Defined as time will expand to the space you allow it to. Meaning the longer you give yourself to achieve something, the longer it takes. We explore this phenomenon in our eBook and how we used it to help our situation.
6 Delayed Gratification
There is no easy way to say this, you have to sacrifice and give up the comforts you are accustomed to (unless of course you already have a million bucks!).
7 Daily Routine
Hands down this would have to be the secret ingredient to our success and commitment. Without our daily rituals and our daily routines none of our long term travel plans would of happened.
8 Gratitude Challenge
The benefit of doing this is to highlight things that are positive in your life. It helps you to focus upwards and let go of anything negative. This was a great help for us.
9 Kerwin Rae
Search on all social media platforms. He is the Australian version of Gary Vee, but with his own unique flavour that leans towards human behaviour, habit creation, love and connection, business skills and more.

11 Facebook Support Group
We really recommend joining a support group that you resonate with in order to fulfill your dream of long time travel. There are plenty out there and of course we have also created our own (albeit small). Find the Just Go Facebook group HERE.
You will need to have a back up plan and/or supplemental income should your new venture need some more incubation time. The digital nomad scene is thriving with remote work opportunities.
