The Traveliving Series: Kasetophono

Road trip means music. kasetophonoGood music. PERIOD!

Κασετόφωνο or Kasetophono is a type of tape machine for playing and recording audio compact cassettes. (source: Wikipedia)

Kasetophono.com is something “bigger” than a regular tape machine and the last five years it has transformed massively the way we travelive.

The Traveliving Series: 1 Gaitán

18222317_685491091634690_4434067297184124797_nWhile in Colombia & after talking shit with some fellow travellers, we came up with the idea to make a hand-made frisbee. Georgia loves crochet and after 3 hours we had our first prototype. Acrylic wool is dirty cheap in Colombia and after a week, stock was ready. Our first attempt to present & sell our creative idea in Colombia, was outside of the Museum of Modern Art, in Medellín.

IMG_0693The Traveliving Series: Decisions, decisions, decisions

Surprises, last minute changes, opportunities, prospects, background. More or less, all these affect the decisions we take in our daily life. The denominator is the freedom we enjoy which is also a decision we have taken unconsciously.

However, life is full of options (along with chances) and there are always two ways to achieve things. The easy way and the hard way.

The Traveliving Series: The eternal dream of a life change

First of all, TRAVELIVING has not been created to support our travels and we do not count on the revenues from it. It is a travel resource, it is an on-the-road tool, it is a box full of memories, advice, information & experiences BUT it is not a way to generate income while travelling.

Everything started and finished on the road (writing, editing, designing, publishing etc) and we couldn’t support better our current lifestyle and the decision we took 5 years ago to leave our comfort zone and start roaming free.

Screen Shot 2017-07-13 at 15.53.29“What are you doing today? I’m sure you’re busy.
There’s work, gym, me time, family time, networking, hobbies, happy hour and don’t forget those 8 hours sleep. All of those are squeezed between some good hours in traffic getting in and out. But, wait. Aren’t you missing something?
You are. Each choice you make is also an abnegation.
The question is: what are you willing to give up?
Would you trade your paycheck for time with family?
Would you give up your stuff for freedom?
Would you pause your Netflix to enjoy the sky?”

IMG_4697The Traveliving Series: Tourist vs Overlander: 0-0

Africa is full of tribes. The same in Latin America & Asia. Travelling as an activity has its own share as well. Tourists & overlanders make up the two biggest “tribes” in the travelling industry in terms of numbers and market share.

If there are one million differences between tourists and overlanders, there are one million similarities as well.

We firmly believe that cycling is the most romantic way to explore the world. Yes, we know! It’s exhausting, strenuous and requires great strength, determination and preparation but all these do not make it difficult but rather challenging.

Spin the Wheel is a Greek initiative to cycle in Malawi & Tanzania (about 800 kms) in order to raise funds and provide 4.500 kids in 15 schools with stationary, notebooks and sports equipment.

The Traveliving Series: The grey area of sponsorshipsdeal-e1460770502655

Deals, bargains, offers. Travellers are always looking for opportunities to save money, create income on their way or even get sponsorships. The common denominator is to find the perfect source of income that will allow you to travel for as long as possible as well as save your passive income. Plus, if you can get some gadgets for free, why not?
