a friend and I, both savvy solo travellers living the minimum for long distances, are planning our first trip together. she's in czechia and im in australia so we're looking for a meeting point that's similar price to get to from our corners of the globe. morocco, egypt, jordan was mentioned and it's a bit of a beaten path with a fair amount of info online with regards to hitching, trekking it by foot etc. But i think Ethiopia and Kenya is where it's at. i've found a little bit of info but not many firsthand accounts.
I'm putting out feelers to anyone who has been there and their experience. interested mainly where/how did you stay but also about getting around, safety, communication, the people etc particularly for those have a bit more of an '''alternative, hands on''' approach to travelling aha
cheers! :)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
