Going Long Term

Hi gang! I found this great article on this site It said a lot of what I was trying to get across in my first post, but I think it says it a lot better. So I figure why not attach the link? And so that’s what I’m gonna do. Here it is…

This article has a lot of tips and helpful websites for those of us that would like to go on an extended travel experience. You can go to these other sites in order to get your voyage underway. Some of these sites I have heard of before and others I haven’t. I have also found some other sites not mentioned in this article I will alert you to. Now I have not actually put any of these sites’ tips and advice in action so I can’t vouch for any of them. But I figure this could be more of a resource to help guide people looking to travel for extended periods of time and make it easier for them to do research. The web is a big place and having different resources all in one place can be quite helpful. So that’s mainly what this is. However, if anyone has tried one of these sites or programs please let us know how it worked out. Was it an enjoyable experience?

So here are some of the other sites I’ve happened upon.

I hope these are helpful. Obviously there is a lot more out there and this is just the tip of the iceberg. I have studied abroad while at University and traveled Ecuador and Mexico for about a month each on two separate occasions. Since graduating I have not lived in another country or traveled for months and months at a time. I have, however, met people on my trips who were doing just this. People who were traveling throughout Europe, or Mexico and South America. People who had not been “home” in over a year. So it can be done. I hope to do it one day soon. Hopefully, these websites can be some of our tools. Good luck!
