Travel + Inspirational Link Round-Up, December

by gigigriffis

Happy holidays, friends. While you’re reading this, I’m cozied up back in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland and it’s snowing in big fluffy chunks. What are you up to this holiday season?

Annndd, links:

:: First, some exciting news: I got my 2015 visa for Switzerland. In case you’re dreaming of moving abroad yourself, my favorite book on the topic is Getting Out: Your Guide to Leaving America.

:: What would your life be like if you were born in another country?

:: Recently, I started a 2015 travel wish-list. This photo essay put Slovenia’s pretty capitol near the top.

:: Speaking of photo essays…God, it’s pretty in Alaska.

:: Wondering what it costs to travel the world full-time? Here’s one nomad’s 2013 expenses. And here’s a breakdown of her location independent income.

:: Finally, looking for more reading recommendations? Here’s an interview I did about my reading habits.



And here are some old posts to help you budget and save while traveling:

+ How to Save Money (Or Maybe Even Make Money) On Your Next Vacation

+ How Much Does It Cost to Spend a Month in Playa del Carmen, Mexico?

+ How Much Does It Cost to Spend a Long Weekend in Italy?


Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who has donated to keep this blog ad-free and going.

You guys are amazing.

And for anyone who missed it, in order to keep the site ad-free and running, to help with Luna’s massive 2014 vet bills, and to make the many loving hours I put into this blog and answering the emails I get through it a little more sustainable, I’ve started taking donations.

Have I brightened your day, inspired your next trip, or just entertained you for a bit? You can now donate in two simple ways:

1) Head over to Patreon to become a patron with a monthly donation (that you can cancel at any time). You can choose any monthly amount (and everything helps!), but if you choose $15 or more, I’ll send you a little something (either a postcard or a signed copy of my Italy guide) special.

2) Send a one-time donation to griffis.gigi@gmail.com via PayPal.

Again, thank you. I’m so encouraged by and grateful for every donation that comes in.
