So we can just hope for the best, and pray we find a place to stay and cheap enough food to feed us while we are gone. That’s pretty much all we are looking for 🙂

Yep, that’s pretty much what we did/do/will be doing. I’ve never been big on cooking for ourselves but there have been a few times we’ve just had mangoes for lunch or bread and a tin of tuna, peanut butter straight from the jar even! Wonder how the kids will adapt to that? We always book somewhere for the first few nights, just to make life easier, then we wing it. You never see the good prices online. Cheapest I’ve found in KL is $40/ night, not cheap! But the flights were so cheap it had to be our starting place. I’ve just been looking at Pokhara, Nepal, cheap as chips! May still be able to get $5/night and it’s lovely there, I feel a long stay coming on. See you in the world!

I’m so happy for you guys. How did you find us dear. I wouldn’t start in Malaysia if you guys are hoping for this to be a way of life. KL is awesome and we are loving it, but there are tons of cheaper countries in SE Asia that make more sense as a backpacker. I know, I know, I know that outside of KL is cheaper and don’t get me wrong, we adore Malaysia. But, as a general rule, we avoid the more expensive countries and stick to the cheaper ones. That helps stretch your money a lot too. We love so many great places here. Our favorite budget place is BAck Home Hostel in KL. Look up their website. sooo cool. Oh, I just their video up as my video of the week. You can see in on the sidebar way up ton. Yes, usually we walk the streets, well Kobi does (I stay with the kids) and he finds us something cheap. And if he can’t strike a great deal on the spot, we move in, and then, a day or so later start asking around or sending emails (if they use them- depending how developed the country is). We typically negotiate long-term stays and offer to pay at least half in advance. That way, we get great deals all over the globe. How did you find us Julie? Any more questions, ask away. Those end up being the best posts by far. Good luck to you guys. Can’t wait to hear of your adventures. Gabi

That’s without groceries, house payments, school costs, car repairs and gas…. i seriously, jenni, can’t afford to go home. funny, no.

We constantly get asked “How are you affording this??” and had to do our own post on the subject! Travel really does not have to break the bank as you have so nicely pointed out 🙂
