5 Things I Miss About South East Asia

It doesn’t matter if you travel for a weekend, a week, or a month: when you come back you’re going to be hit by the post-travel blues, especially if you had an amazing time. In my case, after six months in SE Asia, I’m struggling a bit with England’s cold weather and high prices, but all is gold when you have family and friends!

Every other day I find myself thinking about the amazing adventures, the beautiful places and the crazy people I met on the road. There is no life like the traveling life, and you know it — why would you come to Travelversed otherwise?

So, what is it that keeps taking my mind far away? What makes me want to go back and stay for another six months? I think you’re going to have to read on to find out!

1. It’s Cheap!

That almost goes without saying, but you really have to appreciate this fact! My budget was $18 a day (£12 at the time) and many times, as I often travel slowly, it went as low as $14, including accommodation, food, transport and activities.

Here in England I’ve already seen people paying £12 for a cheese board!

Mind you though, I didn’t stay in dorms! Not because I didn’t want to, but as I traveled with my wife, we wanted our privacy. The crazy thing is that the majority of the time, we paid less for a double room than we would’ve if we each had a bed in a dorm!
