Travel Q&A | Budgets, Adventure vs Naysayers | GRRRL TRAVELER
Today I’m going to do a rapid fire Travel Q&A. Well, I’m going to try to be a rapid fire. But some of these questions aren’t very rapid.
Here I am at Bako National Park in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo and I’m kind of taking a break from my trekking to sit down, plunker and shoot you all a video. I did a shout out on my GRRRLTRAVELER Facebook page and asked you all if you had questions for me and some of you did. So I’m going o shoot you out some of my responses. If I don’t finish them all, then I’ll continue it at my next destination.
Here are the travel questions you asked:
Kamy Cole: I’d love to know how you make and stay within your travel budget. How have you adjusted it since you started?
Bonnie Anne: I really enjoy your videos. You’ve got the travel chutzpah/mojo! A bit of a broad question: What is it that makes you turn toward discomfort when you trail? Is it intense curiosity, a sense of adventure, not wanting to be too comfortable or too settled?
The Bonfire Dream: How do you persuade people back home that nothing is going to happen to you? And break their worries when they claim:
– as a blond, green-eyed and young woman in India you will be more suffering than enjoying it. – volunteering is great but you will be exploited and chances are that something is going to happen to you. – there are many health risks, it might be better to stay in clean places in Europe/America..
The Bonfire Dream: And how do you ensure your utter safety in developing countries?
Bonnie Anne: (Goes into further depth of her initial question) …Especially when you don’t have a safety net, financial or otherwise? It’s one of my pet peeves regarding travel adventure series or shows where a supposed solo adventurer goes into a remote or dangerous area (they have a safety net and the adventurer is not alone)
