Volunteering abroad is an amazing thing to do, for a lot of reasons. First and foremost, it enables you to give something of real significance to a worthy cause.
It can also provide something more personal in the form of valuable life experience. Living among people born into difficult circumstances, or seeing first-hand areas damaged by neglect or exploitation is eye-opening. It allows you to comprehend these issues far better than by watching the news, or reading a book ever could. Understanding these issues and then contributing to their improvement can bring a real sense of wellbeing.
There are plenty of ways to explore the world, but not all of them give you the sense of freedom and the strong thighs you get from seeing the sights from your bike. The first thing I ever fell in love with about cycling was actually a bicycle bell that I was given for my 13th birthday; it had the classic ting ting! sound that I’d heard in countless movies during my childhood, and I spent the rest of that birthday ringing it in my family’s ears over and over again.
I’d had a bike for years, but it was that bell that motivated me to get out and start riding every day - and I never looked back. But you don’t have to have the best bike bell in the world to fall in love with cycling, and especially not when your bike is the vehicle that takes you to the places you’ve always dreamed of going.So, why do I always tell people that the best way to explore the world is by bicycle?

Are you totally in love with bike tours? Me too! However, one thing that lets us down when we want to go for long tours with our faithful companions is the expense. Already the process of getting the bike ready can be so expensive. It can even make you think of just letting go off the trip.
But the good news are that you can actually go bike touring on a budget! Initially, I thought the only time to go for a long journey with my bike was when I had huge chunks of money in my savings account. But I have come to realize it doesn’t have to be expensive, and I have learned several tips that I am going to share with you so you can travel on a budget to wherever you want and at any time.

No, I’m not suggesting your travel partner should carry you, or that you’d commit some hideous act of leg swapping or anything like that 😮
