Last night APR & PATA organized a Bloggers Meetup where Cassie shared her traveling stories from around the world. It was a  casual meetup where she shared her traveling stories from around the world followed by a Q&A session.

 

 

 

At the end of the meetup she shared some tips for the travelers:

  • Do not research about a country before traveling, keep all perceptions about a country outta the door.
  • Always pack light. You don’t need to look like a diva while you are traveling.
  • Use apps like  couchsurfingairbnb , skyscanner and  google maps to save costs.
  • Do not hesitate in exploring new foods, new experiences, new trips, new places
  • Buy one way ticket and don’t worry about the rest. Find job and experience the real life in a country. That’s the best way to travel.
