Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part Two

If you read my first post, you’ll know we have quite the trip ahead. It took a lot of saving, planning, and research, but in the end it was worth the time and effort. 

So how did we do it?

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part One

How do you top a life altering trip? Easy, you plan another one!

I wrote in my last post Breada and I decided not to teach in Vietnam like we originally planned, but we still had our ticket booked to go back. I’m not in the business of wasting anything, let alone two business class tickets to the other side of the world, so we decided instead of teaching for a year we’ll just travel some more. A short trip this time, only three months 🙂

A Little Update…

Have no fear, The Shoestring Trekkers are back!

It was looking like the page was going to fall into the abyss of the interwebs, but fear not! Honestly, as soon as we got home everything just sort of fell back into place like we never left.

14 Months in 14 Pictures

It’s been a month since we’ve been home, and it’s almost as if it never happened. Lucky for us, we have the pictures as proof of our adventures! I literally took thousands upon thousands of pictures along the way, but I thought I would pick just 14, one for each month we were away. These aren’t necessarily my favorite moments (though they’re all great memories!) but the ones I thought really showed what our trip was all about.

Flight Review : Swiss Airlines CS100 Business Class Budapest to Zurich

This was the first of two flights on the day, and honestly the one I was least looking forward to. I was just personally looking forward to our long haul flight back to Boston a little more. It’s also a short-haul flight and European carriers are known to use a EuroBusiness model, which is a glorified economy. That being said, I did have a great experience on my short-haul flight with Turkish Airlines last month. They have a proper business class on their 737, instead of the one seat blocked off cabin like most other European carriers.
