Module 1: Introduction

Module 1 Introduces what it means to be a Global independent Traveler as a youthfully minded traveler. The excitement of experiencing new destinations and amazing natural wonders. Experiencing different cultures and meeting amazing people along the way. It's a way of travel where you choose your itinerary and decides what tours or activities you want to do as you go.


Module 2: Your Travel Style

In this module we clarify your preferred style and purpose to travel, myths of travel, and what may be stopping you. What is your preferred style of travel. What is your heart pulling you to do and what is stopping you?  Your purpose, the type of travel you want. And where you are now what steps do you need to get there?


Module 3: Planning Your Adventure

Here we look at all the essentials of planning your adventure including choosing a destination, flights, accommodation, travel insurance, visas and what you need to get organised for your adventure. By being smart we can travel cheaper than most people think. Choosing the right accommodation options can offer fantastic cultural experiences. Should you enjoy the local cuisine or are the risks too great? And what technology and apps should you equip yourself with and how should you manage your documentation to help when decisions are needed on the go.


Module 4: Travel Smarts

This module discusses some of the smarts of travel such as solo travelling, how to travel longer for less cost and earning an income while travelling. If you don't have partner available to travel, don't wait, travel solo. Just do it. You really don’t have to feel lonely.  Earning an income provides balance to travel. You could run a small online business, contract your skills out or teach English either online of face to face. And traveling longer can be cheaper that living at home by using your home to help offset your travel costs.

Module 6: Living Like a Local

This module discusses some of the smarts of travel such as solo travelling, how to travel longer for less cost and earning an income while travelling. 

Committing to one place is not as easy. It can appear it could be lonelier with the time it takes to form friendships. But the rewards from the challenge of it all, are a very fulfilling experience.  It's the ultimate low burnout form of travel. 


Module 7: Keeping Your Dream Alive

Perhaps the most important step. How to keep your dream alive. It's easy to have big ideas, but what do we need to do stop them from being just a good idea at the time.  If we stop challenging ourselves we stop growing. We can all have dreams, that yearning inside to live our dreams. To us they can seem big crazy ideas. But it takes special people like you to make it happen.

"…I like that you make people aware of pitfalls and that issues will come up but if one stays calm and thinks clearly there is always a solution. I feel that is very important for people to understand - something will inevitably happen, it’s how one deals with it that will determine how your attitude towards travel plays out…"
