Hi there, my name is Lien. I am a Belgian travel addict that loves to explore places with luscious nature everywhere on the planet. I have set foot in over 30 countries but still lots to visit! On this travel blog, you can find destination guides, inspirational photo essays and my personal travel experiences from on the road. Get Lost Abroad is aimed at those who are looking for epic experiences and adventures while travelling on a normal budget.
1. The countryside of Vietnam is perfect for an off-the-beaten path motorcycle trip
The green sceneries, the remote villages and the ethnic minorities were the three elements that made us explore the countryside of Vietnam with a motorcycle. During this adventurous trip my friend Silke and I drove along narrow paths, we slept in Vietnam’s traditional stilt houses and we met incredibly friendly locals.
My boyfriend Wiebe and I travelled across Sri Lanka for 16 days and spent less than €500 p.p. for the entire trip. Sri Lanka is a cheap destination, however, the breakdown in this post is geared towards a budget traveler. All costs mentioned below are per person per day, but based on two people travelling together. It includes all expenses in the country itself, i.e. excluding international flights or insurance.
Canoe trips in Czech Republic are very popular among local residents. This has the advantage that sufficient facilities are found along rivers. The Ohre is one of the most loved rivers for multiday canoe trips and my boyfriend Wiebe and I experienced the reasons why ourselves. We paddled in 3 days from Loket nad Ohri to Perstejn, a journey of 51 km in the green scenery of the Karlovy Vary Region along historical monuments and protected natural areas. These 3 days in the canoe were the highlight of our backpacking trip through Czech Republic. After reading this article you will be prepared for a similar multiday paddling adventure.
