Hey there! My name is Tanayesh , a passionate traveler & photographer who has been exploring the world for over 7 years. During my weekdays I make a living on Internet, Mobile Apps & Implementing latest technologies. I have been travelling the world for a long time , however every time I wanted to travel to a new place I could never find out all the information I wanted to make my trip a memorable one. There are blogs or websites which talk about travelling on a budget , however most of these sites don't provide a detailed cost or itinerary. I found there is something which is missing and which arised the need to share detailed itineraries , tips and cost to the people who wanted to travel the world on a budget. My experiences say that to make memories while travelling and to find that beautiful place in an unknown destination you don't have to splurge. The idea of starting a blog about my travel journeys came in May,2016 while travelling to Turkey specially Cappadocia. I was searching for a cave hotel to stay in Cappadoccia and whatever I found on internet was too expensive for my budget. After searching for 2 days on the internet I found a hotel named Shoestring Cave House. It was within my budget , it looked good in the pictures and I booked it skeptically keeping my fingers crossed. On my flight to Cappadoccia people were talking about how much they had paid to book a Cave Hotel and all were beyond my budget and I thought to myself, my hotel will be a bad one as the price was much lesser than normal cave hotels. I checked in to the hotel and to my surprise it was the perfect cave hotel and infact much better than other surrounding hotels which were selling rooms at a premium. Thus from the hotel " Shoestring Cave House" the idea of blogging about my travelling experiences on a budget was born and hence the name Shoestring Travel. I feel happy when people plan to travel the world without thinking about how much money they have in the bank. I met people who left home with just $500 and dreamt of travelling the world. The dream of travelling the world shouldn't be curbed by the balance in your bank. I will help you to make travel memories on a budget by sharing easy DIY itineraries, useful travel tips, fun videos, amazing photography, and memorable experiences all in a Budget. I want to show you how to travel the world, to seek experiences over possessions, and open your mind to new possibilities. Most Important Travel doesn’t have to be expensive.
