12 insider resources you need for long term travel

12 insider resources you need for long term travel

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)

How to spend the perfect day in Luxor

How to spend the perfect day in Luxor

Luxor is one of Egypt’s most spectacular cities to explore. The west bank of Luxor offers more than 14 ancient archaeological sites. Being surrounded by these historic sites that are more than 5000 years old is so inexpiable and it gives me shivers writing about it. Believe us, Luxor needs some time to explore entirely. We stayed in Luxor for 4 days and that was just enough for us to visit the few temples we wanted to see. Our hotel was located on the West Bank and it certainly is one of the most welcoming places we have stayed at in Egypt.

During our stay we met quite a few people that had less time than us and still trying to squeeze everything into two days. Although this is doable, it is a little exhausting (especially in the heat) and you have to know exactly what you want to do and what places you want to visit before you arrive. If two days is your max then our recommendation is to go to the West Bank of Luxor for one day and the east side on the other day.

Dave and I are always up for adventure, that’s why we decided to explore Luxor differently than most other tourists. We hired bicycles! Our lovely host Abu Naga recommended a bike rental shop down the road which did not require any deposit. We paid 80 EGP per day for 2 bicycles which is about 4€.
