You are currently viewing One Of The Most Accurate Comments We’ve Received In A While

We receive a lot of comments and questions via all of our different platforms and we read them all (even if we can’t always respond to everything). But there is a comment we received recently that I really found great… so much so that I wanted to share it with you!

Of course, we love reading all the comments from people who are happy to have been able to take advantage of one of the great prices on our cheap flight deals page. That’s the most common type of message we get, and please keep telling us when you snag a great deal, we love to hear how we help you travel for less.

But those aren’t the ones I want to talk about this morning. This particular comment was from a lady who contacted us to become a guest-blogger.

To get to know those who want to share their travel experiences with our readers, we ask them to tell us a little about themselves and their travels.

The lady, in her sixties, has visited dozens of countries all over the world.

But what she wrote really struck me, because it is so true.

She said:

“It’s easy to travel: everyone sleeps, everyone eats and everyone finds a way to get around in every country in the world”

Obviously, a little preparation helps. But it’s really that simple.

In all countries, people manage to sleep, eat and move around. It’s not that complicated: everyone can travel and enjoy the privilege of discovering extraordinary places.

Many people put up barriers and unfortunately convince themselves that travelling is hard, difficult, complicated, etc. But in fact, it is much simpler than you think, you just have to get started and do it. The more you travel, the better you get at it!

Sleeping, eating and moving around are the only really essential things… and in almost every country, people do it without any problems: so you can do it too, you’re just as smart as them!

Yet there are still many people who worry about a lot of things that are ultimately quite futile in the grand scheme of things when you think about it! The lady said it so well: everyone eats, sleeps and moves around.

Sometimes it seems so scary for people to go abroad, and it’s unfortunate to see people deprive themselves of having memorable and enjoyable experiences. You’ve already heard this quote, but it’s also very true: the world is a book and those who don’t travel only read one page (or maybe a page and a half for those who only go to the Caribbean, an area that covers only 0.5% of our planet).

So keep in mind that there is nothing really complicated about traveling, especially when you are well informed, when you do your research and when you trust yourself to go outside your comfort zone! In short, as the lady said finding a place to stay, finding where to eat and finding how to get around… it’s very simple.

Are there any things or concerns that prevent you from getting started? If so, tell us in the comments, we would like to help you overcome these obstacles and remove any reason not to travel by sharing our expertise!

We have a lot of great travel tips articles coming, and we hope to give as many tricks as possible so that everyone can travel more!

So it would be great if you could share the questions and concerns you might have, so we can answer them and probably help many other travelers at the same time! So ask us all your questions, it will help us choose subjects for our next articles too 🙂

    New to your site but have been to 28 countries with more to come. My question to you is —when applying for credit cards to get points to travel Business Class eventually, do you use one persons name and get an extra card for my wife? or one card each with separate accounts? In 2014 we travelled around the world (16 stops) for 50 weeks and only used a hotel 5 or 6 times. The rest was house and pet sitting. Just another way to see more and blend in with the locals 🙂
    Love your site

      Hello Barry, that’s awesome and definitely a great way to travel (Flytrippers’ other cofounder has been trying out house sitting recently and loves it). Congrats on the 28 countries, amazing!
      For travel hacking, we’ll have a free course up pretty soon, you can subscribe to our special newsletter to get it and lots more content.
      But yes you are correct, one of the basics is that it’s very hard to accumulate points for 2 people unless earning for 2 people as well, we call it “2-player mode” in the rewards hobby and yes it’s absolutely the way to go to earn more points. If your itnended use is for business class, that means airline miles, and that means usually getting the same card for each is the way to go to have matching points balances.
