Do you love travelling? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get paid to travel? I think this is the dream for many, who want to unshackle themselves from a 9-5 job and go and see the world. You can almost picture yourself sitting on a white sandy beach, cocktail in hand with the sun glinting on the turquoise water. If it just sounds like a far-fetched daydream, it doesn’t have to be. I would like to share with you 25 companies which pay people to write about their travels. Some of these are travel companies, and others are magazines or online publications which have a travel section and purchase from freelance writers. While one can take a bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara, I was advised to avoid the long, rough, and uncertain bus trip and instead take a short plane ride-a half-hour compared to a six to eight-hour (or longer!) bus ride. And that’s if there hasn’t been an accident or landslide along the often narrow road.
Perhaps no place is harder to get to than Gergeti Trinity Church. We took our reliable 1990’s Toyota 4Runner out for a spin through Stepantsminda and towards Mount Kazbek. After 20 minutes of battling through dirt and skidding on ice and snow, we turned around, wishing we had worn diapers underneath our winter attire. We came back to our hotel, and the woman at the front desk called her friend, who came by 15 minutes later in a Mitsubishi something or other from the 80’s that was ready to rock. With an eclectic mix of electonic music and Georgian tunes blaring, we made our way to the top, with the goal of seeing Gergeti Trinity Church – and, again, we wished we had worn diapers. I’m telling you, the driving conditions in Georgia are simply otherworldly. And the drivers…don’t even get me started.
Hi, Dorothy. If we go by the historical averages, you will probably have temperatures in the mid to upp 80s Fahrenheit. It’s hard to predict this far out how much rain you will receive. Our van is a Ford Econoline Coachman Conversion. This means that the body and engine are based on a Ford Econoline cargo van. So, for parts and info pertaining to the basic vehicle function we’d search through Ford.
In the 1980’s when we had another economic turn down, camping was America’s #1 pastime and once again, with the high price of motels and hotels these days that charge you just to say ‘hello’ it once again is popular. Good hub. Although it’s really more of a town, located at the foot of the Anapurna range about 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu.
Great hub, I have an uncle who owns an old camper trailer and he was planing on literally throwing it away since he believes that it would be too expensive to repair and restore it. I would definitely recommend this hub to him. Great hub once again. Refurbished stove and kitchen area. All Plumbing and electrical lines reattached.
If you get rescheduled for a flight that will get you to the destination within 1 hour, you will not get compensated in any way for the inconvenience. They can be wonderful to own and travel in, but only under the appropriate circumstances. This shows the paint colors with the fabric I’ve chosen for the curtains (grey with white dots) and for the pull-out couch (a dark grey with a subtle dot texture).
