Besides, traveling today is fun and easy. Of course traveling means you need to spend your hard-earned money. But if it is worth it then why not?

Traveling isn’t always about spending money to expensive hotels, foods, and tour program. You can have a fun and simple trip without unnecessarily robbing your wallet. There are plenty of budget-friendly accommodation you can find almost everywhere. Therefore, money is not an excuse to skip a chance to have a well-deserve getaway now.

Looking for cheap accommodation

How to search and find the cheap accommodation

Before starting your quest on searching for cheap accommodation, you need to know that you should consider it based on some important factors such as your travel destination, the number of people you bring, budget, travel style, the length of your trip, as well as interests. Thus, you can’t just looking for a low-price room and book it immediately. What if the amenities are not what you need?

What if the location of the accommodation is not safe? Thus, finding budget-friendly accommodation is important but it doesn’t mean you should rely solely on ‘cheap’ things.

Location, location, and location

Of course location plays important role in searching accommodation. To save your money, find accommodation located in strategic location and grants you access to various tourist attraction, diners, ATM center, shopping center, etc.

This way, you don’t have to take a cab to reach your destination since every place is within walking distance. It saves your money as well as time.

Say no to weekend

Weekend is leisure time and lots of people sue it to have a short trip. It means, the price rate is rising on weekend. Thus, it is more recommended to have a trip during weekdays (Monday-Friday). It is even worse if your destination is a touristy location. Weekend is a no for you if what you are looking for is budget-friendly accommodation.

Split rooms

If you are traveling with your friends or families, it is more recommended to rent a villa or apartment consists of several rooms which you can share with other families or renters. This is less expensive than booking several rooms in the hotel.

Besides, a private villa is more comfortable for your stay. Besides, a villa has functional kitchen where you can make your own meals instead of eating out. More ways to save your money from unnecessary expense, right?

Hostels, and why not?

If you are solo traveler, consider staying at hostel. You see, hostels today are not that sketchy or messy. There are plenty of decent hostels with clean room and satisfying services and amenities. And of course, the rent is much cheaper than booking a room in a hotel.

Even if you are traveling with families, there are some hostels providing family rooms and kids-friendly amenities. So who says hostels are for backpackers only?

No Medicines! Relieve Stress Through Camping

Posted by Ongky Darmawansa on

There must be some stages about how serious the stress the human can get. If you are still can read this and doing things normally as before–no matter how hard you are dealing with your stress, I am going to tell you that all of your stresses can be caused by the less travel you have got before. For the worst case, how long have you been actually out there in a luxury and enjoyable trip for days? Can’t remember? Then you’ve got a big problem with your mind. No wonder stresses are coming right at you.

But take it easy. As some of my publications before, I always trying to give a solution if you will need one and today, the only thing I will recommending you is that to get yourself out there and feel free in a fresh air of wilderness through an easy camping trip alone or with your friends.

Relieve your stress through camping so you don't consume medicines

We all have been known that even a backyard’s camping can brings you the time to unwind in the rubble of life. It may not a solution for everything since there won’t be a medicine for all diseases, but surely that it will helps you in many things. Relieving stress can be top of your reason why you will need to get a camping experience out there.

Relieve stress through camping without any medicines

On earlier, I have been told you that your stress level won’t make you worry about yourself no matter how hard to deal with your mind is. As long as the stress won’t let you hurt yourself physically, you can actually thinking about how to heal yourself without consuming any medicines at all.

There have been people and medical staff saying that our own body is actually can heal itself. So that, we can actually take advantages of automatically self-healing ability as well as adding one or more activities that can help you getting rid of the stresses.

And as said on earlier, the activity I was talking about is camping at the wild or outdoor.

When you will be out there, it is better that you are reaching the camping destination by walking to it. If you are possible to walk for about 1 or 2 hours, that will be a good thing to do to get the body’s toxic out through your sweats.

You will also doing that by breathing the very best and fresh air you haven’t been inhale for so long. That fresh air is also can helps increase your brain’s oxygen level so you will not only feels washed away by nature but also to help you think clearly than before. Hopefully, all the fresh air you will breathe in will also get rid off the dark mist in your mind so the stress can really be gone or drastically decreased.

Camping is also an easy trip for everyone. As I have mentioned before, you can even experiences it at your backyard.

The gears and items that you will bring should never add some stresses because you may only need a backpack to pack all of the goods you need to bring. Even, in today’s travel history, we have been introduced to a hammock camping where you can be out there in just minutes without packing all the goods that most of the times you don’t really need them.

It is also my self recommendation for you to hang out at the wild and enjoy the silence by your own to make yourself experience the calmness and peaceful state of mind. Later, you may will forget about the stress you’ve got before and start seeing and thinking about many things differently and positively.

So that, for the next time if you are getting stress again and no one can help you, simply help yourself by giving it a retreat from routines by experience the camping trip somewhere else so you can also won’t addicted to medicines. It is better for us to be addicted to the high quality of nature, isn’t it? Anyway, camping can also be your door to start your own exploration.
