How to save money for traveling?

We saved € 25,000 in the space of a year and a half. Some may do better else you say that it's just impossible to save that amount in so little time. I think to save in a short period of time, you will make some small sacrifices. These sacrifices will depend on your personal boundaries and are therefore very dependent on one person to another. So we will inform you of our own history.

Slow boat / cruise Hui Sai to Luang Prabang

The next day we go to the piers along the Mekong River to take the "slow boat". It's quite expensive, 21 euros, but it's two days of boat to Luang Prabang. We eat a bit before taking off, because prices in the boat are more expensive. The cruise is very nice. American tourists planned their Styrofoam cooler to transport their alcoholic beverage and go up strong enough in decibels. It's quite disrespectful to the country to see them afford to do what they want like that. We have a little feeling of being in a can of sardines with tourists.

Visit Chiang Rai border crossing to Laos to Chiang Kong

Go for the local bus which costs only 80 baht and share at 12 Pai. Arriving at Chiang Mai, we take the last bus with greenligne at 17:30. We arrive full night bazaar around 21h and must quickly find a hotel before rain and above all do not close before. Asians tend to go to bed early, most close to 22h. Cheapest Wanted as usual (around 200 baht) and it falls on a guest house that has a look of squat ... I check the status of the room, but everything is correct and clean, even a small balcony with table and chair rather nice.

Welcome to Thailand !

We make our first steps in Thai land! The roads are really very good and the mountain is easier to climb. Besides, we climb one pass, because after all we do is go down ... We will learn too late, to our regret, the area is full of hot springs. Our map showing not we just missed. The atmosphere is very different, we feel increasingly westernized field. Civilization is present, the mini shorts are out and it upsets us a little change of atmosphere. We try to renew the wild camping. Dogs bother us a lot.

Bangkok

The next day we go through Bangkok and arrive at our host Pong. It lives in a secure area, such as the American. We are very well received by his wife and 16 year old daughter. They prepared us two beds in the bedroom of her daughter who sleeps with his parents. Generally in Asia, the parents sleep with their children for years. We'll do some shopping for fruits and vegetables at the market. The prices are quite high. We prepare their evening meal.

End Bicycle touring ... For now! It left for the ruins of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai in the process !

We end up storing our early morning business. We take the trailer with us and withes Sharly in a small room where we wait for the next 2 or 3 months. Pong advises us to go through the ancient capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, which is 50 km north of Bangkok. He returned around 12 pm from work to accompany us to the train and looks us from it. Our host is fussing with us. You should know that the trains in Thailand are not very fast and quite often late, but sometimes they can arrive a little early so beware. Bangkok-Ayutthaya is 11 bats (0.3 euro) in the third class.

Chiang Mai, Pai, mountains, rain, finally a bit of freshness and moisture!

Arrived in Chiang Mai, we seek a guesthouse. We then meet Maxime, a French Buddhist traveling over the long term with little money. He advises us a dormitory for 140 baht (3.5 Euro) / 2 people. We are left only with four beds for two. The manager is very nice. Then we not spend some time discussing philosophy with Maxime and we went with him to park the next day by renting scooters. The park is really nice, we visit a Buddhist temple for 30 baht / person. He is well known and full of tourists, but it's pretty nice. It must be said that the temples, there are plenty in the city and we are a little tired of seeing, because they are all a bit like ...

Myanmar borders: it heats !

We drive towards Thailand. I eat for the first time of the season mangos !! This is not really given, yet there are trees everywhere. They prefer to eat greens with salt and pepper. So when the mangos ripen, there is much more to my great misfortune. We seek to fix what the trailer. Because the metal plate ended up breaking. Jojo is a welder who makes it for free.
