My Travel Story

by: Alexander Lunin Start Date: Nov 2, 2017 - End Date: Mar 1, 2018

Man is made happy by 3 things: love, interesting work, travel possibility (Ivan Bunin).

And I would say the love to interesting work makes such possibility. And this grows to dependence.
This is like possessed. Yes, and we are possessed!

Protected ourselves from opium and alcohol, we became depended from history, biology, physics and other science.
Travelling unites this together.

Thirsty for drive, adventures, movements forward to all new and unknown, opening one by another Pandora boxes, packing up one pazl by another, remembering school geography lessons, we like young Magellan Alexanders or Christopher Columbus, burst into each new for us country and dipped with head into her culture, architecture, grocery and life mode.

Though no, we are Macedon Alexanders, living at Balkans near Macedonia. We live in Bulgarian Republic.

Somebody says:”I have been in Italy”, though drived only one time via Venice channels.

Or somebody says:”I have been in France”. Climbed up one time at tower and walked through Montmartre.

We visited the whole Europe, back again and again to the some countries, looking to the each corner.
Untypical, nontouristical, unusual one. Go down from ways pathed by millions.
Try on such different suits, go deep into such different minds and languages.

Now our way is to the EAST. To meet Sun.
And our travelling is named .“The Way to the Sun”.

  • Day 5 Before The Beginning Of Our Around The World Travel.

    Day 5 before the beginning of Our Around The World Travel.
    We decided to put all our things together, which we will take with us.
    Based on the experience of our previous trips, it was decided to minimize the list of things.
    Very often, taking something with me, like many T-shirts, I did not have time to put them all on.
    Especially since we are the beginning of our journey in Asia, where a very creative and not expensive jersey.
    Last winter we bought some good T-shirts in Thailand, for a year of active use in Bulgaria, their color did not change, the pattern was not worn and they did not weed.

    The most important thing in a long journey, do not be afraid to part with a thing that you do not need. Do not bother your back, give it to the local, give it to someone it needs more.

    Most of our things, we bought via the Internet, on Ebay and Aliexpress. For those who are interested, the links below are in the description.

    In our backpacks:
    1. Action Camera GoPro Session 4
    2. Selfish stick for GoPro Session 4
    3. Apple Notebook
    4. Case for GoPro
    5. Backpack Adidas
    6. Backpack WillPower
    7. Post Cards and different Souvenirs (magnets, Bulgarian ceramics, Bulgarian spices and Bulgarian Rose Oil) from our Ebay Store
    8. Sleeping Bag
    9. Chargers for Phones
    10. Charger for Apple Notebook
    11. Samsung J7 Prime
    12. Samsung A3
    13. Charge Adapter different Types of Keys

  • Money For Our Around The World Travel 2017-2018

    Money for our Around The World Travel 2017-2018
    Money, paper, coins, cash – all these are opportunities, this is moving forward.
    Do not be afraid to start your journey with some money.
    After all, a shortage or a limited amount of money always makes you wiggle your brain and get out, come up with income options.
    On a trip, make sure you make copies of your bank cards. If VISA is issued to the main account, then order an additional MASTERCARD and vice versa.
    As shown by the practice of travel: in Europe (for example, Germany) can not accept VISA for payment, and in Asia (for example, Thailand) – European cards.
    Despite this, it is always worthwhile to have a little cash in your wallet: euro for the European Union and dollars for the rest of the world.

    Another useful tip, if possible, change some of the currency of the country you are eating. As a rule, it can be done in the central large banks of your city. Well, or at the airports on arrival but with a less favorable rate. And having a local cash you will easily and without loss get to the city center or hotel by taxi metro or bus.

    Our journey runs from Europe to Asia, Australia and the United States of America. And if in the latter you can manage non-cash and already contactless payments from bank cards integrated into the smartphone, then in Asia, as before, trust in the physical cache with watermarks.

    We prepared and exchanged:
    100 AED – Dirham of the United Arab Emirates
    500 INR – Indian Rupee
    20 SGD – Singapore Dollar
    300 – Thailand Bahts
    500 000 VND – Vietnamese Dong
    40 AUD – Australian Dollar
    And 50 USD – American dollar at 1 dollar
