long term travel.

Jump to last reply

I am in my early thirties from western new york and I am looking to do some serious long term travel. I will be traveling with my companion. We have already started the planning process including saving and selling small possessions. We are also looking to rent out our house when the time comes. We are giving ourselves a year to a year and a half to accomplish everything necessary. We would like to travel long term, spending anywhere from 3 to 6 months in any place( or longer if fit). We plan on working small jobs in each place and really immersing ourselves in the unique cultures of each destination. We have a couple places in mind to kick off our travels and would greatly appreciate any advice or tips on our travels. We would like to ease into this, so our first thoughts are Australia. Overall we would like to live places that are not big cities... with comfortable, relaxed atmospheres, like beach and island areas. Other destinations ideas include Bali, Fiji, maybe some Central and South American coasts. Also, we are very interested in then heading to Europe ( Greece, Spain, Italy). If anyone has any thought on where to start, the hows and wheres, that would be great. Thank you!
