Hello there, we are Katja and Mic, I Need Toilet Paper travel blog team, and we have been traveling around Asia for 18 months, trying to perfect the art of budget traveling and writing a blog about it. We started with a month in Sri Lanka, used lots of toilet paper in 4 months in India (1 amazing month on Andaman islands), hiked in Nepal, ate everything in Thailand and went from living in the muddy jungle of Mentawai to a cute house in Bali. We’ve sat on every…
I have mentioned about us buying an old car. After 8 months of driving around with bicycles and sitting at home at sunny weekend (I do exaggerate a bit :D) we decided it’s time to explore our tiny cure country. So we bought an old Toyota Yaris which is just perfect for us. We both love to eat good and drink some nice wine, so we decided to go to Goriška Brda region which is famous for their wine production. It also looks like little Tuscany!
It’s been a long time since we’ve flown with an airplane. Yes, we’ve bought a 10-year old car and have been exploring our tiny but beautiful country, Slovenia. But it’s not quite the same. the plan was to visit Sao Tome and Principe, but then the airplane tickets went sky rocket and we were left without a destination. Mic called me from Bolgaria and asked if I wanted to go to Zanzibar. To the land of bounty and white sand beaches? (I know, so cliche :D). Hell, yeeeees! 😀 Oh, the anticipation of flying feels like crispy air of Himalayas.
We will be exploring Zanzibar for 3 weeks starting 3rd week of May. We have been invited to stay at some resorts, try some restaurants and try to find beautiful things that don’t include spending a lot of money. The thing is, people go to Zanzibar just for a short time, from Tanzania, and we want to explore it as the 3-week-vacation place.
Besides the main island, our goal is to see Pemba island which doesn’t have a lot of tourists. Mainly because of high end resorts 😉 And there’s our challenge!
Burma (Myanmar) is a beautiful country. Friendly and gold. And even if we were a bit disappointed by crowds of tourists, we would go there again. On a bit of a different route – south! Burma is slowly opening to outer world and you need to go to the newly opened places. Here’s a 17 day South Burma itinerery which you can prolong into Thailand to a 3 week itinerary
It’s winter. Our first winter after a couple of years. Not sure I like it. It snows and it looks nice but then it ‘s wet and cold and I start thinking about summer. I don’t even ski. Everybody skies in Slovenia! Well, not me But there are some nice things about winter. Like day trips on the snow! Look at this winter fairytale. Just a good hour car ride from the capital Ljubljana.
Easy walking with a good view to the mountain cabin (about an hour). You can borrow a sledge and go back faster This is even good for small children. The mountain cabin offers good food and traditional drinks. Try ajdovi žganci or jota. Very Slovenian
Sometimes I like winter
Traveling in Asia and traveling in Europe is light years away, as you probably know. And while we could just hop on couple of buses when coming to Bangkok, in Europe we need to check dates, hours, end stations, costs. But there is also an easier option which we use every time we travel with an airplane – GoOpti shared transfers. This means sharing a van with other travelers and getting straight to the airport. Here are some tips how to book a cheap airport transfer in Europe with GoOpti:
Prices of GoOpti transfers are cheapest 70 to 50 days before your departure and a lot more expensive 7 days or less before. Last minute booking doesn’t pay up.
If you’re traveling in a group don’t book the airport transfer one by one. Their system adapts the price to the number of travelers and the price will be much cheaper if you’ll book more (or even all) seats in the van.
If you have more time and options to plan your trip, you can use this information to get cheaper transport. When loads of people use shared transfers to go to the airport, it will be much cheaper if you will go the other way. And when the holidays are over, they will go from the airports to the city, it will be cheaper for you to go to the airport because all the vans will have to go to the airport anyway.
Now this one is really important. When searching for the transport click the button Price options which will give you some price options based on the hour of pick up. For cheaper options click the button More price options. Here you’ll get the cheapest options for your airport transfer but the pick up hours vary. The less you pay, the more flexible you have to be. For example, price range for the same distance from Ljubljana to Venice can be from 20 to 55 €.
Everyone who uses GoOpti airport transfers for the first time can get 5 € off the price. They have a program where everyone who already traveled with GoOpti can give their friends 5 € coupon. The one who gives the referral gets 5 € on their account for the next ride. You can use our code (get it here) to get 5€ off . To give 5 € to your friends, sign in here.
If you have your own webpage or a blog, you can add an affiliate page from where people can book GoOpti transfers from which you get 5 % of the amount they paid (you can use it on your next transfers). Read more information.
You can save up to 70 % if you take some time and check the best options for you.
