GUEST QUESTION
Hey, I want to go for a vacation with limited budget. I have shortlisted 3 countries Srilanka, Bali/Indonesia, Thailand. Which one according to you is better option wherein I can explore more places, can do multiple things even with budget constraints.
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
Hi Pankaj, I think Sri Lanka is the best option. It's super cheap (I spent around $30 a day there), and most importantly: it's compact. So you can see a lot in a short amount of time without having to fly or spend 12 hours on buses like you'd need to in Thailand to get to see a variety of places (beaches, islands, temples, etc) For Sri Lanka, I recommend: one of the national parks for wildlife (Yala for example- elephants, jaguars,..), the tea country (take the train - the views are spectacular and it costs only $2!) and some of the UNESCO sites, like the ancient city of Polonnaruwa or Anuradhapura). Climb up Sigiriya Rock and head south for some beach time (Mirissa was my favorite).

Hey Dani,
Have you walked Camino De Santiago trail ? Can you suggest a great post/blog you have written or found on web.. which I can take a look at and plan accordingly !

Thanks a ton 😀

Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
Hi Rucha ,

Thanks so much for your question! The Camino has been on my travel wish list for the past few years but I’ve always had timing issues. Basically, the best time to walk it is September (June to August too crowded, March – April leading up to Easter too many pilgrims, October to March too cold… May would be nice though, with the wild flowers in bloom!) but these past few years, I’ve always had other plans at that time of year. This year it actually might work out though! I am ready 😊

So yes, I’ve come across a ton of good blog posts about the Camino because I’ve been researching it a lot!

Here are some good ones:

GUEST QUESTION
what is the most important thing I need to know about Berlin for a first time visit?
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
You need to get out of Mitte to experience the 'real' Berlin. Many tourists get stuck in Mitte where most of the historic landmarks are. But to get a feel for Berlin, you have to get out of Mitte and explore the neighborhoods. Go on a bar crawl in Kreuzberg. Eat middle eastern food in Neukölln. Go to a flea market in Prenzlauer Berg. Check out the street art in Friedrichshain.

Other than that, I'd recommend:
1- no need for taxis. You can get around easily by public transportation. Berlin has no Uber, btw.
2- bring cash! Most places don't accept credit cards
3- Visit the Reichstag Dome for an amazing view and audio tour of Berlin. It's FREE! That way you'll get a good idea of how Berlin is laid out and the dome itself is stunning.

Which are your favorite food items in Sri Lanka?

Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
Oooh Sarvesh, that's a tough question!! I love Sri Lankan curries, samosas, so many things!! But I guess my absolute favorite are the egg hoppers which are usually eaten for breakfast. They are almost like crepes, but made from rice flour.. golden and crisp at the edges and doughy in the center. Usually there's an egg baked into the base (but you can get it without the egg) and they're served with fragrant Sri Lankan curries (karis) or spicy relishes (sambals) ... To die for!! 😍

How is Mexico for solo female travel?
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
I’ve never felt unsafe in Mexico, especially in the Yucatan peninsula, where I am right now. With tourist hot spots like Cancun, Chichen Itza and Tulum, it’s probably the safest region of Mexico. It’s probably the country in Latin America where I get the least cat calls. This is my third trip to Mexico within a year, and my fifth visit to Mexico overall… I keep coming back because of how safe I feel here, and how much I love this country 😊

GUEST QUESTION
Since you girls are traveling extensively, do you opt for travel insurances? If yes, do you have any recommendations.
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
Do you need travel insurance?

The short answer is YES.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to have travel insurance – receiving a hefty bill after a 5-minute hospital visit in the U.S. taught me and my girlfriend our lesson of traveling without sufficient insurance cover. While there are many countries that provide super cheap health care (we paid $10 for a hospital visit in India, including x-rays, medicine and a 4-hour stay!), other countries (especially the U.S. and most European countries) can cost a big chunk of your travel budget. I always say: If you don’t have the money to buy travel insurance, you shouldn’t go on a trip – because how are you going to cover your expenses in the case something happens?

And travel insurance isn’t only covering your health, but also your belongings. And in a time when everyone is traveling with electronic equipment – be it a Kindle, an iPhone, a laptop or an expensive GoPro, it’s well worth paying to have peace of mind while on a trip.

Which Travel Insurance Do I Use?

I have used World Nomads travel insurance for a few years now, since it is the best option for long-term travelers. World Nomads is available to people from over 150 countries and is designed for adventurous travelers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities.

I’ve found that several of the insurance companies I looked into that offer protection for long-term trips only offer it when you sign up for it before you start your trip, but not while you’re already on it. World Nomads on the other hand also lets you buy a policy when you’re already on your trip (there is a 72-hour waiting period though once you sign up – so do not wait until there’s an emergency to sign up, this will not cover you.)

Bonus Tip:
I am not sure why, but buying your insurance for six months is cheaper than buying your insurance for an entire year – not sure why, but this is a great travel hack to save some money. The quote below is for a one-year policy, the quote above for a six-month policy, which is nearly one third more expensive if you buy insurance for the entire year. A six-month plan costs you $55.83 per month (standard) / $80.50 (explorer) per month, whereas a one-year plan costs you a whopping $87.50 (standard) / $111 (explorer) per month.
So when buying the six-month plan, the Explorer option (which I always go for, by the way) is still cheaper than the Standard option in a 12-month plan.

You can get a quote for WorldNomads here:

Have you been to Colombia? What's your favourite places? Tips on how we can meet Shakira? 😂
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
Yes, I spent ten weeks in Colombia and it's one of my favorite countries 😍😍 To meet Shakira, head to Barranquilla, her hometown, on the Caribbean coast. 😉 It is halfway between Cartagena (a must visit!!) and Santa Marta (good base if you want to dive in nearby Taganga or spend a couple of nights in Tayrona National Park right on the coast) My other recommendations would be the coffee triangle, Bogota for a crazy party weekend at El Teatron, Minca for a relaxed mountain getaway, and if you enjoy multi-day treks you MUST do the Lost City trek. I shared my 13 favorite travel experiences in Colombia here: http://globetrottergirls.com/2016/04/colombia-highlights/ I hope you'll love Colombia as much as I did ☺️

GUEST QUESTION
what's your best advice for someone who wants to do one of those hikes?
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
My advice is to start with a hike that's not in high altitude (such as the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal). I'd start with the Camino de Santiago because it's the most developed one. Which means if you feel like you can't walk one day, there's a bus you can take. As for preparing, I recommend walking long distances. Track your kilometers. (Use an app for it). That way you'll get a feeling for how long it takes you to walk 5k, and you can up your distance to 10k, 15k and eventually 20k. When you get to 20k, pack a backpack that you would bring on the hike. Because it's one thing to walk this sort of distance, but a whole different story to walk it with your gear on your back. I wouldn't set out on a major hike like that until you're comfortable walking this distance, and two or three days in a row. Make sure to always pack enough water on a hike , force yourself to hydrate. If the walking bores you, load your phone with audiobooks or podcasts. Happy walking 😃

GUEST QUESTION
Airbnb or Couch surfing is more relevant for a local experience? Anyone with experience please share your view
00:24
Dani Globetrottergirls
HOST
I love both couchsurfing and Airbnb, and it definitely helps making your travel experience more authentic and get a better idea of what life in the place you’re visiting is really like. In a hotel, you’ll never have your host randomly invite you to a party with locals, or to join them on a bar hopping tour. Even when my hosts don’t have time to take me out, they always give me great recommendations for places to check out which aren’t necessarily on the beaten tourist paths.

Over the years, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to find couches to sleep on, especially in popular destinations, which is why I now prefer renting a room in an Airbnb apartment – instead of renting the entire apartment. That way, I get the chance to connect with my host, and when I travel solo, I don’t need an entire apartment to myself. I always want to meet new people though J And that’s what I also appreciate Couchsurfing for: their groups and meet-ups. So even if I don’t couchsurf with someone, I can still go to a meet-up and connect with other travelers.

Have you tried couchsurfing and/or Airbnb?
