March 19, 2015 Updated: March 19, 2015

Travelling can be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences you can undertake. It can introduce you to new ways of living, cultures and languages, and many people see travel as a life changing event. The world is a large place with some beautiful and stunning sights to see and things to experience. This is why so many people go travelling either as a gap year before attending university, as a year off from work or when they retire. It is a totally different experience to going on holiday, and certainly an eye opening and memorable life event. Before setting off on this adventure though there is planning, preparation and budgeting to consider. This can be daunting at first, but it will all be worthwhile in the end.

The first part in planning will involve establishing a budget, as this will determine where you go on your adventure as well as how long you are able to travel for. Travelling will always be expensive no matter where you go, and that is because you will need to account for flights, visas, travel insurance and possible injections. There is then of course accommodation, food, travel and activities to factor in as well. One option to make budgeting and travelling much easier is to work or volunteer abroad, and this is an incredible experience and something that not many people get to do.
