HOW LONG ARE WE TRAVELING FOR?
We can never really answer this as we don’t know to be honest! Loosely speaking though, we think it’ll be between 12 and 18 months. There’s a big wide world out there and we want to experience as much as possible.
HOW MUCH DID WE SAVE?
We always get asked this by other travellers. They would probably instantly hate us if we were to tell them the truth about how our property business funds our travels! In all honesty though we didn’t save for this trip, we always planned to use passive income each month and so far there hasn’t been a need to dent our bank balance at all.
WHERE ARE WE TRAVELLING
The simple answer is anywhere where the sun is shining. Our route is basically loosely planned around the weather, we plan to soak up as much sun as possible after our 28 years being stuck with the non existent English summers.
It all started in America, we decided to start there as neither of us had been before and it seemed a good way to ease us into travelling, after all it’s very similar to the UK just with super-sized everything! After this we’ll work our way West across North America, through Asia and Austrailias before ending in South America. Our list of countries to visit totals 24 at the moment.
Unlike most travellers we didn’t book a round the world ticket before leaving. We literally set off with a one way flight booked to LA and 7 nights accommodation, the rest we planned to book as we went along. Some may say this is risky but we wanted the freedom to be spontaneous and not be controlled by a schedule.
Upon finishing our trip around the world we want to head back to the UK and buy 3 more investment properties. We’re not sure if we’ll go back to work during this time or just focus on the houses full time. Either way, we plan to disappear again! This time to explore Europe by sail.
After that I guess it’ll be time to act our age and settle down 🙂
