About thetripgoeson.com

I created this blog to recount stories from my travels and to assist others in doing likewise. Want to know how to spend a day in North Korea or visit Dracula’s Castle? Read on. The site also covers useful information on border crossings, VISAs and how to get a quote for Travel Insurance and much more. Check out my destinations page or blog for more.

My first taste of independent travel came at the age of 21 when I booked a short flight up to Scotland to go hiking in my grandfather’s old stomping ground (the West Highlands). This was around the time that budget airlines had just taken off (pun intended) and within a few years I was able to visit a host of European cities for sometimes no more than a few pennies. Berlin, Dublin, Oslo, Rome, Seville, Tallinn and Zadar; all inexpensive and within easy reach.

For the next seven or eight years it was a great time for jet-setting around Europe but then the banking crisis happened and fares started to rise as well as all sorts of extra charges being levied against the passenger. I started to look a bit further afield and travelled to Russia first in 2007 to Moscow and St Petersburg, and then to Siberia two years later.
