As a foreigner, planning a trip to Tibet can be discouraging considering the planning involved, the permits required and a lot of waiting so patience is a virtue. It takes a great deal of motivation, determination to research and spend many hours reading to come up with a list of places to visit and things to do. Remember a foreigner cannot travel Tibet by oneself. A full time guide is necessary, tour must be booked, private transport must be arranged and permits must be obtained even before arriving in Tibet. So to simplify things here are 5 steps to follow when planning a trip to Tibet.
Japan by far was the most surprising travel destination we came across. The culture, the food, the people and the technology is so impressive we could not believe we only had such a short time to indulge in this beauty. We loved and really admired the Japanese etiquettes. In the limited time we had in Japan we wanted to see as much as possible. Travelling in Japan is expensive, especially if you are on a budget. So it makes sense to make use of each day to the fullest so we did.
Here is a small snippet from our US road trip in Aug 2015. We had mere 9 days in US west coast and wanted to make full use of it. We also realised that the higher the expense of the country, the shorter the stay and faster the travel becomes. US has not been high on our list because in my opinion if a country is wheelchair accessible travelling there can be made any time later in life.
At this point in my life, I wanted to make sure I visited all the places where I am able to use my physical energy to maximum capacity. I wanted to explore places where transportation maybe limited and places where there are no roads or easy access.
It was fortunate for us that our itinerary shaped up the way it did and we got to spend a little time in this vast beautiful country. Read more →
