The Genuine Secret To Free Health Insurance When Traveling Abroad that the Insurance Companies Don’t Want You To Know About

 

It surprises me actually that it’s not so well known that for many people around the world, it’s possible to have free health insurance whilst traveling. But I guess, who is going to tell us? Definitely not the travel agents since they make a whopping huge commission (sometimes 60% of the cost)  from selling you private health insurance/ travel insurance.

Yes there are a lot more things travel insurance can cover you for than just health care, but usually health care is the biggest expense.

So it might surprise or even shock you to know that high quality, free health insurance is available for travelers in certain countries. There are three options I will tell you about, the first is a very unknown reciprocal agreement between a certain group of countries worldwide, and the second is a more well known one available to all European Union citizens who travel to other E.U. countries. The third option is for everyone else.

Top 5 Unique Tricks for Flying Cheap for the Hardcore Budget Traveler

How hardcore of a budget traveler are you? If you are kind of interested in saving some money then this post is not for you – but if you would do almost ANYTHING to save some cash, so that you can travel as long as possible – then you’ve come to the right place.

1) Open your mind and stop doing what everyone else is doing. You will need an open mind to try out the following tips.

The Island of Crete, Greece. Notice the pink sand right at the water’s edge. The pink sand of Elafonissi is as beautiful as it is unique. It is forbidden to remove it from the beach, but sadly there are people who do it anyway…(seriously, what are people thinking?)

2) Clothes  We all know how cheap it is to fly with airlines like Ryan air etc, but they charge insane amounts for checking in some luggage. If you really want to save some money on this, think about wearing as many layers of clothing as possible to the airport. Once you are on the plane, you can take them off – and if you are smart – you can bring a flexible material made bag that is only as big as what you put in it – small enough to pass the budget airline’s strict carry on luggage policy and then flexible enough to grow when you need to put your clothes in it after getting on the plane. Another option is to wear a jacket with many pockets where you can store your items.

Love and Sex and Backpacking World’s Top 5 HOSTELS for it

Most of us who travel are usually after new, exciting experiences (and I don’t just mean sightseeing). Most of us are looking for a connection of some sort – whether it be through exploring new cultures,  searching for love, or simply some hot, passionate sex that makes the man feel like a man, truly standing in his manhood and owning the animal inside him, and the woman feeling truly held and supported in her womanhood.

The hostels below can be thought of as a playground where the male and female energies dance wildly into the night:

5.  X Hostel, Golden Sands, Varna, Bulgaria

This place should be renamed XXX Hostel. Located right near Golden Sands on the Black Sea Coast, this budget hostel was easily one of the most fun and welcoming places I’ve been to.

Owned by a young Italian guy, the atmosphere here can be defined simply as insane fun. If you don’t find yourself at one of the steaming hot foam parties, it is probably because you are too busy having a wild night on the nearby beach.

My initial plan to stay a few days ended up being 3 weeks at this place – and I then ended up staying on to work at the place for another 2 months!!

Located in Bulgaria, its also a cheap, ideal option for backpackers on a serious budget, with 1 euro = 2 levas.

4. Paradise Beach Resort, Island of Mykonos, Greece.

If you haven’t heard of this Carnivale’, you are more than likely living in a cave.

This is the world’s most sensuous, vibrant, pulsating party on the planet.

Get ready to explode with joy and music as you move your body to the sensuous vibes

No one does sex appeal like the South Americans!

Although it is not so cheap to fly here, once you get to South America you’ll find it much more affordable and suitable for backpackers / travelers on a budget than Europe or the US etc.

How to have a Cheap Holiday or Backpacking Experience in Athens

cheap holiday

The first thing you should know about Athens is that everyone has an opinion about everything – that is, everyone’s a philosopher in Athens (or thinks they are :P)

In this post I will cover:
- How to get to Athens for cheap
- Cheap and free accomodation in Athens
- Eating Cheaply in Athens and cheap tourist memorabilia
- Seeing Athens Cheaply or FREE
- How to stay long term in Greece
- More ways to save money whilst travelling :)

Athens, as most people know, is the cradle of Western Civilisation. Unfortunately, this is not still the case today. Ever since the Christian Church ordered the destruction of Plato’s Academy (the World’s first University) and tried and executed those who preached freedom of thought, Greece has experienced a severe decline.

Even so, Greece still has a magical feeling about it :). I’ve been travelling for a year now, and there’s a certain almost magical feeling I get when I’m in Greece. By that I don’t just mean the beautiful islands, I mean Athens as well. There’s something unique in the atmosphere of sitting in an outdoor restaurant on a warm day, enjoying an ouzo with a souvlaki, whilst listening to the laughter and street music of people walking by :). There’s a strong feeling of connection there I have not got in any other city.

Follow my tips below and have an awesome, memorable, and importantly, affordable experience :)

Getting there cheaply

There are several options you may want to consider for getting to Athens. Each has their pros and cons, depending on what your circumstances are – ie are you travelling alone, where are you coming from, are you only interested in Athens or other parts of Greece? You should compare all options below and see which has the best bottom line for you.

Train
This can be cheap, depending on where you are coming from. If you are coming from Sofia in Bulgaria (a country definitely worth visiting) the train ticket for Athens is 50 euros when you first ask, because it includes a sleeper. However, if you are really looking for a cheap experience and are willing to rough it abit like a true backpacker, book a ticket to the Greek city of Thessaloniki instead – this will cost you only 15 euros and is about half way to Athens. Once at Thessaloniki train station, ask for the 15 euro ticket to Athens. You may be waiting a few hours or you may not have to wait at all, either way, it only costs another 15 euros. This means a total of 30 euros instead of 50.

If you are a student, or under 21, be sure to ask for a discount, especially EU students.
