An introduction to Sixpenny Globe, for the newcomers:
Sixpenny Globe is a budget travel show that follows two best friends on a journey around the world. Though perhaps follows isn’t quite the word, because the show not only films said friends, it’s filmed by said friends. The story picks up just after Kristen and Kelsey have decided to travel the world, and have purchased a pair of Around the World plane tickets. But here’s the catch. After the initial ticket splurge, they only have enough cash left over to spend $30 each, every day for the next four months.
Now please take into consideration that this $30 must be stretched to cover all of the following costs:
- Excursions and museum/site entry fees
- 3 meals a day
- Bribes and ransoms – for danger
- 2 – 8 snacks a day
- Water bottles – your budgetary arch nemesis, masquerading as refreshment
- Laundry and shampoo/toothpaste replacement
- New blouse or accent scarf – for when you begin to loathe everything you packed with a blood-curdling passion that makes your outlook on Voldemort look something like “I’m not a huge fan of cilantro.”
- 80 beers a night (Kelsey)
- Money that falls out of your pocket
- Online gambling addiction (Kelsey, #FreeKelsey)
Assuming you understand what money is, you now fully comprehend that $30 a day will not be easy. It will more likely be downright sketchy. But for better or worse, this cheapo saga will take Kelsey, Kristen, you, and your laptop across twelve different countries and all the way around the world. It’s a race against the bank: if they can manage $30 a day, they’ll travel the world – that’s right, all the way around the world, the full circumference – and return home having spent no more than they would’ve spent on four months of rent and phone bills. And if they fail? Well, we won’t spoil the ending.
Well, that’s all for now, folks. This post was absolutely redundant, at times oddly phrased, and far too long-winded for my taste, but that’s because our Search Engine Optimization Advisor, Kaviraj, practically sat on the chair with me as I typed. He knows what he likes and he knows what we need.
So, in closing, follow the Sixpenny Globe blog to stay up to date on everything we do around the world as we travel the world in a budget travel style around the world, which is where we budget travel the world (around the world, that is). Apologies for that. Budget travel. Travel the world. Sorry, he made me. Around the world. Travel the world. Okay that wasn’t even me, that was Kaviraj.
Until we meet again, keep up the good budget travel around the world!
