A working holiday visa program is a great way to have an extended stay in a country and to explore a particular region of the world. It’s a great way to base yourself in a location and save money for further round the world travel.
If you plan to stay a week or longer in one place, consider a peer-to-peer rental such as Airbnb or HomeAway so you can cook, have privacy and still spend less on lodging than at hotels. Instead of paying for tours, explore cities and towns on foot and use public transportation when necessary. Buy local maps and guidebooks so you don’t get lost. If you stay at hostels or other shared living spots, fellow travelers can often offer valuable insights.
During travelling you may experience the craziest, most exciting things, that will eventually become great stories that you can tell others. When you grow old and look back at your life and all your travel experiences, you will realise how much you have done in your life and your life was not in vain. It can provide you with happiness and satisfaction for the rest of your life.
As you pack, focus on taking clothes for different climates and bring handy items such as a Swiss Army knife and reusable bottle for your carry-on luggage. Street markets let you taste the local food for cheap, but make sure you know how to avoid getting sick from unsanitary conditions. To avoid spending too much on restaurant meals, choose places that locals tend to frequent. If you have a kitchen where you’re staying, consider cooking to save money. You may also feel healthier by taking a break from constantly going out to eat.
