So, welcome to One and a half backpacks, we are Tereza and Roman, a couple behind this blog. Did you think that this page is about us? Wrong. This page is actually about you, my friend.
I am sure you would like to read something interesting about the two of us, but that would not help you much. So let´s ask more important question…
What are you looking for on our blog? Why did you end up here?
Are you always dreaming about visiting places that are far, far away?
Would you love to change your life to be more adventurous and unique?
Would you love to travel the world?
Do you love your life how it is right now, but you would just like to travel more?
Would you love to travel but you just can not save enough money?
Would you love to change your life, but you have no one to talk about it?
That was a lot of questions, but….if at least one of your answers is YES, you come to the right place.
You are in the right place…
We are here to prove you that as far as your traveling dreams, you can achieve anything your mind wants.
We are here to show you how to travel the world without going broke. Show you how to plan your next holidays, your next adventure or maybe even how to travel the world. We will share with you how to find a courage to change your life completely if that is what you seek.
We are here to share with you our travel experience and budget tips, so you can pursue your travel dreams. Our goal is to save you time and money, so you have your full attention on reaching your goals.
But mainly, we want to inspire others to travel more and stress less, because life is damn short to worry about little things that do not really matter.
What can you expect from us?
Our blog posts are about places we traveled to and they are packed with information, tips, and tricks how to visit these awesome places on a budget. We also write about tips that should help you save money. Help you plan your next trip and stay motivated so you can pursue your travel dreams.
We are here to listen to your fears and struggles to help you overcome them and stay on track. And sometimes we will just share with you our travel stories, that happened to us. And believe me, we have some pretty funny stories.
What will you not find here?
We hate when someone wastes our precious time, so we do not want to do the same to you. So if you are looking for one of these, we are probably not the best for you:
We do not share tips about collecting miles because we do not know anything about it. We live in Czech republic, so, unfortunately, we do not have any reward system. No credit cards for receiving miles. So we are the lucky ones that have to pay full price for flights.
We do not travel in luxury style. We do not travel in a first class and do not stay in luxury hotels. We are BUDGET BACKPACKERS and most of the time we are broke. So we share tips show to save money, how to travel to amazing places for as cheap as possible…why? Because life is not about money. We believe that life is about experiences, meeting other people and sharing cultural differences. Our best travel memories always come from traveling on a budget, so we want to continue doing that. Also, it is a challenge for us to prove that even the most exquisite places can be done on a budget.
Last but not least, if you are looking for tips how to make money online while traveling, we are sorry to disappoint you, but we do not know how to do it either. But we are working on it…
So are you still with us? Great. I believe you maybe have one important question in your mind….
How the hell they know?
We know because we were in that place in life. We were trapped in boring jobs, felt lost and uninspired and with almost no money. But we decided to change our lives, be more adventurous and stop worrying about petty, not important things in life. It was a rollercoaster and still is, but we would not change it…
We moved to the other side of a globe, lived in Sydney for three years, traveled, met people we would have never met in your old lives, made new friends…
We traveled to some pretty awesome places in the world and we have tons of tips for you how to do the same for as cheap as possible. Because you do not have to be a full-time traveler to enjoy life, travel more, longer and cheaper.
So, still with me? Awesome. That means you take your dreams seriously, so we will have a lot in common. We promise you to do our absolute BEST to share useful, relevant and fresh information with you, so you can easily achieve your goals.
