#PTTravel is a hashtag that has been used on social media for a while now and I am asked almost daily what it means and why its important, so I decided to write a quick post.
What is this strange internet jargon?
Its a revelation. Its going to change the world and your life. It might end up in a dictionary or even translated into languages around the world. Ok, maybe I exaggerate slightly. It is a bit of a movement with some bloggers and certainly a new perspective on travel.
What does it mean?
It stands for part-time travel. It is used by bloggers, travellers and actually anyone who has full-time responsibilities (work, study, family or another reason) but wants to make travel a regular part of their life when they can.
How do I convert to a life of #PTTravel?
DON’T give up your day job, sell your house and take off on the road. Stay at home, do all of the things you have to do BUT save money and make time to go off to parts of the world you want to explore when you can.
Its amazing how many people I talk to that want to travel but don’t know how to make it part of their lives. There are so many options and tips to making a small amount of time or money stretch a long way. Weekends in neighbouring cities to maximizing annual leave or school breaks to go long haul; we have the knowledge and experience to show you how.
