Ep.48 - Mt. Bromo & Kawah Ijen - Highlights of Java, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)
Mount Bromo is probably Indonesia’s most famous active volcano and sits at the Eastern end of Java between Surabaya and Yogyakarta. It's part of the Tengger massif and in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.  Kawah Ijen. A beast of a volcano, just shy of 3000 meters, will leave you gasping. Not only for air but also for a truly unique experience. It's home to the largest acidic lake in the world measuring only 0.7ph (with battery acid being 1ph!). Java is only the fourth largest island in Indonesia but contains more than half of the nation’s population and dominates it politically and economically. The capital of Java and of the country is Jakarta (formerly Batavia), which is also Indonesia’s largest city. If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Java, you've come to the right place! In this episode, we dive deep into how to go about visiting the famous volcanoes of Java: 1. When were we there and for how long; 2. Our reason for going; 3. Highlight or standout experience; 4. Transport around; 5. Challenges; 6. Budget; 7.

Ep.47 - Yogyakarta City, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)
We weren’t quite prepared for how much we would love Yogyakarta and somewhat regret spending only a few days there. Nevertheless, we made the most of our time and now have a place we would like to revisit on our return to Indonesia! Yogyakarta - often called simply ‘Jogja’ (Y’s are pronounced like J’s in Bahasa), shares the name of the capital city of Jakarta yet they could not be more different! Jakarta has over nine million people in its hazy underbelly – interspersed with skyscraper malls and some of the most congested traffic you will find anywhere in the world. While Jogja retains a calmer soul, is culturally rich in ancient Javanese arts and home to less than half a million inhabitants. Yogyakarta today is home to the nation’s most prestigious university, a well-established art & music scene and picturesque landscape.  Java is only the fourth largest island in Indonesia but contains more than half of the nation’s population and dominates it politically and economically. The capital of Java and of the country is Jakarta (formerly Batavia), which is also Indonesia’s largest city. If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Java, you've come to the right place!  As Yogyakarta is synonymous with both Prambanan and Borobudur Temples we include our experience and recommendations on both these magnificent temples.  In this episode we discuss: 1. When were we in Yogyakarta and for how long; 2. Prambanan Temple  3. Borobudur Temple  4. Highlight and standout experience; 5. What the weather is like; 6. Food; 7. Must-See & Do ; 8. Transport and getting around; 9. Budget; 10.

Ep.45 - Going to Lombok, Indonesia (Travel Guide)
Thinking of visiting Lombok, Indonesia? If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Lombok, you've come to the right place!  The Gili’s, together with Mt Rinjani, are Lombok's most famous icons and are consistently rated among the top destinations in South East Asia by travellers and travel publications. Every year the Gili’s attract tens of thousands of visitors from around the world to their pristine waters, great diving and laid-back charm. However, the lesser-visited main island of Lombok has no lack of its own stunning beaches and scenery. The south of Lombok especially has a wonderfully laid-back lifestyle, almost year-round sunshine - as well as for some of the best surf breaks in Indonesia! For more on Lombok you should have a look at the following articles on our blog: https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/indonesia-travel-expenses-29-nights-2019 https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/getting-to-the-gili-islands https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/guide-to-the-gili-islands https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/the-other-kuta-lombok-guide https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/the-secret-gili-s-of-southwest-lombok https://www.wewillnomad.com/post/indonesia-where-and-how-to-eat-like-a-local In this episode we discuss: 1.

Ep.44 - Volunteering (WorkAway) While You Travel - Our First Experience.
In this episode, we talk about our very first volunteering (Workaway) experience. We spent three weeks volunteering our time at an Eco Jungle Camp at the northernmost tip of Borneo. If you’re considering volunteering or a Workaway experience, this discussion might help shed some light on what to expect. We discuss the following aspects: How our opportunity came about and why we considered doing it. Where we volunteered and what our tasks and responsibilities were. Did volunteering turn out as we expected? The good and the bad of our volunteering experience. Is volunteering for you? Would we do it again?

Ep.41 - Travel Fitness vs Travel Fatness
In this episode, we discuss various approaches and techniques to enable you to stay fit while travelling as well as touch on the importance of combining your exercise regime with a good diet. We have been full-time nomads for 2 years now and we share our experiences of what has and what hasn’t worked for us over the past two years. FITNESS: Benefits of being fit when you’re on the road. Being motivated to exercise regularly. The challenges of a changing environment. Overall health and well-being while you travel. Going for a regular run. Blog post - How to train yourself to run 5kms Yoga - Use an app like DownDog. High-intensity training and bodyweight workouts. Establishing a routine and sticking to it. Be mindful of bad habits and make better choices. Wear a fitness tracker to measure progress and monitor routine. EATING: Eating well is easy if you have an unlimited budget. Why your diet is more important than exercising. Track what you eat to hold yourself accountable and keep you honest. Should breakfast be the most important meal? Choosing the right food and avoiding bad habits. Cut out the obvious culprits such as refined carbohydrate and sugary foods. Fruit juices and smoothies are really bad. Avoid alcohol as much as you can.  Don’t miss out of the odd spoil but don’t eat two bad meals in a row. Keeping a food log using Instagram is fun and will help to keep you accountable.

Sharing a confined space for 15 months with the same 9 people. Highs and lows of the experience. Cooking and eating from a limited selection of ingredients for more than a year. Why there are no Polar Bears in Antarctica. What to do to keep yourself entertained. Does it take a certain type of person to do this?

Ep.38 - Top 10 Penang, MALAYSIA (Budget Travel Guide)
In this episode, we discuss our Top 10 Things to See and Do in PENANG. The Island of Penang is just off the West Coast of Malaysia and is actually connected to the mainland by two long bridges. We had previously visited shortly in 2014 and now spent the full month of July 2019 staying just outside of Georgetown, Penang. We enjoyed the fact that Penang is both modern, fantastically practical and functional, and yet still has so much culture and historical authenticity.

Ep.35 - Top 10 Seoul, South Korea (Budget Travel Guide)
Want some inspiration for your visit to Seoul, South Korea? In this episode, we discuss our Top 10 Things to See and Do in SEOUL. With a population of approximately 10 million people, we expected Seoul to be like any other big city - bustling and impersonal. We were however pleasantly surprised with just how laid back the city can feel and also how relaxing and peaceful all the wonderful green public open spaces are, nestled between the busier city streets. The 5 days that we spent in Seoul went by in a flash and we definitely hope to return to explore more of what this vibrant city has to offer.

Ep.28 - Highlights Of Mauritius (Budget Travel Guide)
Being budget orientated and independent travellers, we set out to dispel the myth that Mauritius consists only of high-end resorts. We spent 19 nights visiting Mauritius over July / August 2017 and found the island to be perfectly suited for self-exploration.  We were based in the south of Mauritius for the most of our stay, but having our own transportation allowed us to also spend a few days circumnavigating the entire island stopping at almost every single beach and tourist attraction to make sure we could give our opinion on all that the island has to offer. Although not a budget destination, we were pleasantly surprised with our overall spending to explore such a magnificent tropical island.  In this episode, we will discuss the many amazing highlights of Mauritius (both the touristy and off the beaten track places) as we explore the entire island starting in the south and circumnavigate the island in a clockwise direction recalling our memories and highlights.  For more information, blogs and videos of our time spent in Mauritius, head over to our website Mauritius page. For more general information and travel tips on how to travel Mauritius DIY style, listen to Episode 27. If you are considering Mauritius as a kite-surfing destination, be sure to listen to Episode 26, which is all about Kite-surfing Mauritius.

Ep.27 - Mauritius: DIY vs Resort (Budget Travel Guide)
 When most people think of Mauritius, fancy all-inclusive resorts and expensive dollar signs will probably come to mind - this was the reason we avoided Mauritius for quite some time. With it being such an attractive kitesurfing and nearby location to escape the Cape Town winter we decided to give it a go DIY style for 19 nights over July / August 2017. We were so pleasantly surprised that we’ll be sure to do it again! In this episode, we will discuss the following aspects of travelling Mauritius, the associated costs and of course our tips on how to make the most of your stay. How to find the most suitable accommodation Where to stay, the different areas and beaches Getting to and from the airport Getting around the island What to look out for when renting a vehicle Availability and cost of food and groceries General information and travel tips For more information, blogs and videos of our time spent in Mauritius, head over to our website Mauritius page  If you are considering Mauritius as a kitesurfing destination, be sure to listen to Episode 26, which is all about Kitesurfing Mauritius.  For options on activities and tours have a look at KLOOK and GETYOURGUIDE.   ABOUT US: Hi!

Ep.26 - Mauritius Kitesurfing (Budget Travel Guide)
When kitesurfers think of Mauritius as a kitesurfing destination, their attention is usually focused on Le Morne, which has gained worldwide recognition as a hot wave riding spot thanks largely to the KSP World Pro Kite Surfing Tour. However, what few kiters realise is that there are also great spots (mainly for lagoon riding) along the East and North coast of Mauritius as well. In this episode we will discuss the following topics relating to kitesurfing in Mauritius: Seasons, wind direction and consistency of wind Best kitesurfing spots around the island Do you need a wetsuit and booties? Kitesurfing schools and taking lessons Should you take my own gear or rent? Resort vs DIY (Listen to Episode 27 for more on how to DIY your Mauritius holiday like we did) Getting around Mauritius with your kite gear Getting to Mauritius Is it an expensive destination  Be sure to check out our blog post on How to Travel with Kitesurfing Gear on wwwwewillnomad.com to see how we got all our gear to Mauritius without it costing us any extra.

Ep.25 - SLOW Travel vs FAST Travel?
FAST Travel or SLOW Travel? The debate between slow vs. fast travel is one which really boils down to personal choice. Some of us don’t have the opportunity to travel as much as we’d like, so choose to pack our travels full of different stops to optimise our available time. Others choose to linger and immerse themselves in a place,  happily staying for weeks or months before moving on. Going into this conversation we thought we knew exactly where we stood on this matter and yet towards the end we had some interesting insights! There are advantages and disadvantages to both slow and fast travel, but above all – it’s still all travel. Anyone who decides to walk out of their normal life and pack a suitcase, and go into the world to seek new horizons, whether they do it slow or fast, is a traveller after all.

Ep.19 - Social Media & Travelling - Best Friends Or Worst Enemies?
These days social media is so much a part of our lives, it’s often difficult to imagine life without it. When it comes to travelling, this becomes even more prevalent and one sometimes has to ask the question whether social media contributes positively to our travel experiences or if it detracts from it.  This can be a controversial topic and many people have very strong opinions regarding social media being either positive or negative. In this episode, we discuss the various types of current social media, some of the pros and cons of social media while travelling and some misconceptions with regards to social media.  Our discussion got rather animated at times and we end up diving deep into the benefits and downsides of social media. Feel free to drop us a note and share your thoughts on the topic…     ABOUT US: Hi! We're Andre & Lisa!   Nomads and experienced budget travellers. Married for 11 years.

Ep.13 - Our Journey to becoming Nomads
A year and a half after making the decision to sell our belongings and commit to nomadic full time travel, and a year after moving out of our house, we reflect on our personal journey to becoming full time Nomads. We touch on how our previous travel experiences have influenced our future travel plans, how our travel plans have changed and evolved over the years and how they will no doubt continue to change in the years that lie ahead. We discuss travel goals, financial independence, the sustainability of full time travel and how to make that call to pull the trigger and just do it! We reflect on our transition period and how we feel about the whole process and decision... one year later.   ABOUT US: Hi!

Ep.12 - 5 Steps Towards Reaching Your Travel Goals
No matter how big or small your travel goals may be, how soon you want to achieve them or how distant in the future they may seem... in this episode we will discuss 5 important steps which we believe can help to make your travel dreams a reality. To help you remember these 5 steps, Lisa came up with the (very cheesy) acronym DR CPR: Define your travel goal (your where, why and what) Research (the realities of your goal, budget required, practicalities, timing etc) Commit to an achievable deadline/date and have this visible to remind you of its importance to you Prioritise (your spending, time and energy) - perhaps start a travel fund  Re-evaluate regularly to keep yourself on track or adjust your goals accordingly We hope this episode will inspire you to consciously take the necessary steps to make your travel goal a reality. We also hope that achieving your travel goals and enjoying travel, in general, will bring you as much joy and happiness as it brings to us!   ABOUT US: Hi!

Ep.5 - Full Time Travel - What We Should Have Packed!
After 26 countries and countless holidays with hand-luggage only we thought we knew it all. However, when we left 2 months ago on our latest trip (of undetermined length this time) we still made a bunch of mistakes in what we brought with us. Of course it's impossible to plan for every single eventuality and if you attempt to travel light you have to accept that certain things are nice to have and if the day comes that you need it, you should just go and buy it.  In this episode we chat about: Items we packed but have already ditched. Items that are useful but not a necessity. Items we should have packed but didn't.    ABOUT US: Hi! We're Andre & Lisa!   Nomads and experienced budget travellers. Married for 11 years.

Ep.3 - Budget Conscious Travel - What Does It Mean To You?
Being a budget traveller has nothing to do with how much money you spend. Rather, it has everything to do with how you spend it. Just as you don’t have to have deep pockets or a trust fund to afford to travel, you also don’t have to live on a shoestring to call yourself a budget traveller Not everything about “experiencing” travel costs money. Everyone is different, everyone see’s things differently, people enjoy different types of travel. Travel is not a competition. Everyone will have a different definition of what is cheap and what is budget.  Know what you want to spend money on.  Research and plan before you go.   Create your ideal budget.     Match your expectations to reality.  Keep track of all your expenses.  Budget travelling is about being frugal — not cheap. It’s about not wasting money on frivolous stuff. It’s about knowing when and where to spend your money, no matter how much you happen to have.   ABOUT US: Hi!

Ep.2 - Is Full-Time Travel For You?
We chat about whether we're all equally suited to a life of full-time travel - or even WANT to travel for an extended period of time. What would you define as full-time travel and how is it different from going on vacation? Is it better to travel alone or with a partner? Why do you want to travel at all? Does full-time travel mean forever and when is the right time for you to do it?   ABOUT US: Hi! We're Andre & Lisa!   Nomads and experienced budget travellers. Married for 11 years.
