Travel 101: A College Student's Guide to Traveling the World | The Kay Days Today, I’m featuring guest blogger Emily Sussell from Fly Away World. She is a recent college graduate who is pursuing her dreams of travel and blogging. In February 2012, during her college years, she began studying abroad in Australia. The college years are easily both the best and worst time in a person’s life to travel. It’s unfortunate, but in my experience I find that most young people in the United States have a distorted understanding of the word “travel.” After doing a lot of traveling myself and connecting with people from other countries I want nothing more than to redefine the culture of travel in the United States. My biggest piece of advice to undergraduates who want to travel is to start with a semester abroad. You won’t have to go through the planning process alone as there’s plenty of support on a college campus. Study abroad is an ideal, foolproof way to master the logistics of planning travel. I studied abroad my final semester of college.

I can only think of one good reason not to travel overseas, and that would be the environmental damage caused by air travel. I met a girl in Australia who told me she only travels by boat for this reason. Whether you sail or fly, traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. I plan to save up at least $6,000 in the next year, and enjoy each day of it to the fullest. Nannying I’ve got a great gig locked down from now until June as a babysitter for a family in (no surprise) Park Slope, the Brooklyn neighborhood notorious for stroller jokes. Nannying isn’t for everyone, but if you want to save money you will need a part-time or full-time job. Living at Mom’s, or in a housing collective Living at home makes it easy to save a large amount of money fast. The thing is, I really don’t want to live at home. In that case, my solution is to seek a room in a housing collective. Freelancing Not Binge Drinking 7 x 4 x 2= 56 7 x 2 x 2= 28
Boldly Go Solo Toronto, Canada, is full of food, fun and adventure. Who knew? I was bowled over by my recent visit to Toronto. I had visited Montreal with my family when I was a kid. It had that French vibe and it felt like you were in Europe. But I always thought of Toronto as a modern city without much character. Well, let me tell you. Hop on and off the 501 streetcar along Queen Street The 501 streetcar route is one of the longest in North America. My first day, I went east from the center of town with a group of people from a travel bloggers conference I was attending. Another day I walked...and walked...west to the Gladstone Hotel before turning back, catching a streetcar east and then another north to Chinatown.
HappyTime blog C'est Christine l Solo Female Travel Blog How To Save Money for Travel (Part 2) | Fly Away World It’s been four months now since my return to New York from my extended travels abroad. I landed at JFK with a broken left wrist and less than zero dollars in the bank. Since then I’ve recovered from surgery, completed physical therapy, got a part-time job, started paying back my student loans, and managed to save about $2,000 towards travel. My commitments in New York to my job and yoga teacher training last through June, so I’ve got five more months to go before I’m free to roam the world. This feels agonizingly long, and it’s a huge challenge for me to peacefully stay put. I believe entirely and advocate for the individual’s potential to adventurously live and travel without money, but I also agree that having money is more convenient. My savings goal is $1,000 a month and since the last post I wrote about how to save money, I’ve come up with a whole new list of more strategies: 1. If you do not have any loan debt, realize how incredibly lucky and advantaged you are. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

It is a great time to catch up on my blog and let you know what has been going on for the last 16 days.
