It doesn’t, however, mean that you should give up on travelling entirely. Instead, follow this guide to help you get inspired for your next ultimate getaway, at a price point you can afford.

Start Following Travel Blogs

The first step is to follow travel blogs and guides like the ones you can find on They will be able to give you plenty of in-depth information about places you never heard of or key insight about your bucket list destinations that can help put it within your budget.

You might even find a new destination that ends up being your most favourite place in the entire world.

Read Travel Narratives from Journalists

Another way to be inspired and gain key insight is to pick up a book. Specifically, pick up the travel narratives or auto-biographies of journalists or renowned travellers. It is always fascinating to read the real world from a narrative point of view, rather than from a guidebook. Do this, and you will gain a better understanding of the culture and the destination.

Watch Documentaries

If you are more of a visual person, try getting inspired by watching documentaries. There are a variety of themes and destinations covered by the documentary community, meaning you can find and learn about the world right from your sofa at home. You will know you will have connected with a destination when you are onthe edge of your seat and filled with the need to just Go. When you are hit with this urge, it is wise to go back to the travel blogs to see more practical travel information about it.

Budget Beforehand

Once you have become inspired and truly want to see and get to know a destination first hand, you have to go about making it into a reality. What is the point in being inspired if you don’t feel the urge to act on it? Before you get too excited, however, it is important to budget. Bigger trips will take longer to save up, but by planning in advance you can not only spread out costs, but you can also have all the pocket money you need before you go.


Finally, it is time to go! Taking the time and effort to truly see what’s out there will definitely pay off because chances are if your destination isn’t one of the top tourist hotspots, you are in for a real, culturally authentic treat. Get to know the locals, experiencing living in a different place first hand, and have an adventure unique to you. Take your inspiration and run with it, and keep running so long as the adventures keep thrilling you.
