Ritornerà il pane caldo appena sfornato
il suo profumo avvolgerà strade e vicoli
la gente siederà a tavola, e ritornerà a parlare..
il cuore esploderà di gioia..

5 Ways You Can Travel the World on a Shoestring Budget

Traveling is always a lot of fun, a joy ride of adventure and new learning. You will get to meet different people practicing interesting traditions and rich cultures. In every journey, there are lessons and stories waiting to unfold. However, these experiences in travel often come with costs. In this article, we will discuss five ways you can travel the world on a shoestring budget.



1. Go Couch-surfing


If you have a goal in life to travel the world but don’t have the budget, being shy or timid is the least attribute you need to have. Remember that traveling forces you most of the time to go out of your comfort zone and push your limits. This is your chance to take the leap in a foreign place alone. A good idea is to go on couch surfing. By this, you need to have a good plan in choosing where to stay.


There are many tenants in other countries and places offering their own residential home for travellers to stay temporarily either for a number of days or a number of weeks. Research about the location of the house, for your convenience and accessibility. Also read about feedback of past travellers who have experienced being tenants of the potential house before approving to a deal. The advantage is that you do not have to pay monetary costs. The least you can do is express your gratitude by treating your host to a meal or giving him a gift in kind.


2. Join Charity Works


Community services are all over the globe and if you are feeling genuinely helpful, it may be a good experience to join charity works and discover new places at the same time. In such a case, do not forget to bring medicine for cough and cold as you will most probably be exposed to communities that are scarce of these resources for common sicknesses.


Traveling does not always have to be about leisure. Some do it for the noble cause and for the feeling of self-gratification and fulfillment. You will feel good once you accomplish helping those in need!


3. Keep It Simple


You don’t have to always fly in business class. If your sole purpose is to visit another country and be wanderlust, all frills in a plane may be eliminated. Scratch the idea of ordering food in the plan, packing extra clothes more than you need, bringing more items that are needed for the travel and buying expensive souvenirs from each place you land on. The best thing is to keep it simple.


Bring a trusted camera, versatile and comfortable clothes and shoes to wear and a map. For first-time travelers, especially if you don’t have friends or relatives residing in the country you are going to, bringing a dictionary or learning basic sentences of the country’s language indeed will be useful as well.


4. Wait for Promotions


Wise traveling is always about planning and booking ahead. If you intend to go for a Europe trip and money is a problem, wait for promotions. Nowadays, budget airlines are also offering flights to more countries. Hence you would not have to pay a lot to travel. The downside is that seats with discounted or promotional fares tend to be quickly taken. Unless you are fast to book for your desired dates of flights, you would not stand a chance. The key is to decide for your travel dates and monitor when the promotions will start so you can book immediately without hesitations.


5. Budget Your Finances


At the end of the day, it all boils down to knowing how to budget your finances and acting on it. Save up money and reduce your expenses so you can spare some specifically for your travels. Keep a journal of your purchases to track where your income goes out to. Be sensible and reasonable with cash-outs. If you must, establish a goal so that you would definitely have spare cash for adventures.




By following these tips wholeheartedly, you won’t have a problem in achieving your dreams to travel the world. Even finances won’t be a hindrance since you are now more knowledgeable and prudent in planning and budgeting.

Holidays in Sicily: Marina di Ragusa

Thanks to the colours of its landscapes, to the number of artistic and cultural sites that all of its cities offer, to a crystal clear sea, and last but not least, to its wines and typical products, Sicily is an inexhaustible source or culture, amusement and relaxation. Every part of Sicily is worth a visit, no matter if you decide to visit the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, to sleep in Ragusa or to lay on Mondello beach: in any case you can be sure to spend an unforgettable holiday.Sicily is much appreciated both by those tourists who wish to spend a few relaxation days, laying on the beach, sunbathing and freshening up swimming in a sea that could not be clearer than that, but also by those who use their days off to discover the artistic wonders that certainly in Italy are not lacking. The best choice, when you decide to visit Sicily, is mixing these two ideas of holiday, alternating a visit to the monuments and symbols of the beautiful Sicilian cities and a relaxing day on the beach. As far as the cities to visit is concerned, in Sicily you are really spoilt for choice: from the historic centre of Palermo, with Piazza Pretoria and the Cathedral, just to name two of the best-known sites of the city, to Catania, with its baroque monuments, there are plenty of things to see in Sicily. But Italian and foreign tourists do not appreciate only the big cities: also the smallest villages have much to offer. If you wish to spend unforgettable holidays in Sicily, for example, you can go to Marina di Ragusa.

Marina di Ragusa is a small village (about 2,500 inhabitants) in the province of Ragusa, but in spite of its small size, it is very popular and much appreciated by tourists. A fishing village in the beginning, with the passing of time Marina di Ragusa has become an important seaside resort, which has been awarded important prizes like the Blue Flag. And that is not all: according to yahoo.it and Tripadvisor, the beach of Marina di Ragusa has been ranked first among the most beautiful Italian beaches, with great satisfaction of Mayor Nello Dipasquale; this award, indeed, recognizes the efforts that have been made in the last few years to make Marina di Ragusa even more beautiful and welcoming. And those efforts have been recognized also by the 600,000 tourists that every summer decide to spend their holidays in this village, attracted by its golden beaches, by the amusements that it offers and by its proximity to many interesting artistic and cultural sites. And if you go to Marina di Ragusa in August you will also have the chance to take part in a series of events that are notably keenly felt by local people: until some decades ago on the 14th of August people celebrated the end of rural works, and nowadays people still celebrate, on the 15th of August, with a game called “legno a mare”, a long procession on the sea that includes many boats, theatre and music shows and the unmissable fireworks.
