If I said to you ‘Do you want to travel from New Zealand to Bali and it will take 18 hours one way’, you would most likely say no.
If I said to you will save $1000 NZD by travelling an extra 12 hours each way you may have a change of heart.
What I do have is time but what i don’t have is money.
So people often say to me how can afford to do all this travelling?
There is always a last minute cheap deal out there somewhere. You just need to hunt for it. Im a big fan of Skyscanner and grabaseat and websites like Groupon and Grabone.
I managed to book return flights to Bali for $525 NZ dollars including booking fee. It is the strangest route – via China but it is $1000 cheaper than travelling via Australia.
If you have the travel bug but worried about doing it on a shoestring budget there is options out there and being a tourist can be so cheap walking among a beach is one of my favourite things to do and its free!
Stay tuned. xx
