Have you spent hours drooling over travel videos from different parts of the world? Have you always wondered how a few men & women are able to travel for months (or even years), while a two week trip drains all your finances? Have you been thinking of a long term trip? A sabbatical? A gap year? But you have spent so much time only thinking about it that you are almost ready to give up?
Well, Eccentrips.com, a brand focused on enabling purposeful, long-term travel might have a tip or two that may bring these aspirations a step closer to reality.
Sachin Bhandary of Eccentrips.com, and the guy who quit his decade long Public Relations career to travel will share things he has learnt. After quitting his job in December 2014, Sachin traveled to over 14 countries and took challenges in most of them. He traveled across India in 25 Days on 25 Trains, learnt rock climbing in Thailand, explored a mystical Afro-Brazilian religion called Candomble in Brazil, fought at a fighting festival in Peru and learnt Salsa in Cali, Colombia.
He intends to share everything that he has learnt in a structured way at this workshop titled ‘Travel Longer, For Lesser’. The workshop aims to help travel enthusiasts in three aspects. The first one is how to shortlist destinations for a long term trip keeping the Indian passport in mind. The second major problem people face is planning their finances and tools & tips to keep costs at a minimum. The workshop will seek to address this in detail. Also, another important aspect is keeping an income going while you are traveling.
“I wrote a blog called ‘How to travel the world for almost free’, and it went viral. Buzzfeed picked it up as well, and I started getting messages from people asking me more questions. I realised that a blog post was not enough, and people had many other questions which needed to be answered. So we decided to organise these workshops. This is purely for the benefit of other travel enthusiasts. We plan to take this across the country and help more people travel longer for lesser”, added Sachin.
The workshop will also feature other well known long term travelers. Rohith Subramanian, is a young 22 year old motorbiking through 46 countries and will feature in the workshop and Ragini Puri. The workshop will host a panel discussion where these experienced travelers will share their tips and stories from the road as well.
Sounds exciting? It should, if you have ever dream of packing your bags and disappearing from your daily life for a long time. For all you know, this is where your ‘Travel Longer For Lesser’ journey will start. Good luck!
