A Million Travels @ Mirissa Beach, Sri Lanka

On 26th January 2016, over 7 years ago now, we began this new adventure, starting our Blog with the first of many posts…

Reading it now, it makes us smile: it was short, improvised, real amateur-style. After all, no one was born knowing everything, and we all must start from somewhere! It doesn’t mean that now, years later, we became sublime writers nor famous bloggers, but we do try our best, and we can look with pride to our progress made so far.

Our numbers say we have 360 posts, dozens of pages and categories, hundreds of tags, more than 5000 photos in our archives. We are regularly getting more than 500 visits to our website daily, which fulfill us with satisfaction and give us motivation to go on with our work. On Facebook you follow us in 3,000 and on Instagram in 30,000. But what’s most important of all is that what we write about made us happy. We’ve been nurturing our minds and souls, that can now tell endless life experiences and stories that we’ve been collecting over these 7 years full of adventures and new meetings.

One of the most fascinating aspects of traveling is exactly this one, meeting new and different people everyday, to whom tell and from whom listen each other’s stories, creating an amazing limitless vicious circle. Whether it’s about some advice given in a hostel about what to do around, or sharing important moments like crossing land or river borders, or just simple answers to e-mails on the blog to who’s asking info.

Our passports are full of stamps that witness our travels, and the number of visited countries grows, now over 50: recently, among the others, we had the chance to uncover amazing Thailand, warm Sri Lanka, adventurous Jordan, immense Australia, untouched Vanuatu and obviously our beloved Vietnam.

But we’d like to remember that traveling is not a race to the first who gets to 100 countries, as a matter of fact it’s all but that: traveling, differently from going on holiday, means getting to know a new country, a new culture, appreciate it, being grateful to it, and learn the most possible everytime, becoming in this way truly rich inside.

That’s also why we prefer to settle in a country for a few weeks or months, if not years as in Vietnam or Australia, instead of touching and go in a rush. Slow traveling is the best traveling!

Thanks to all of you for following and supporting us, as per our blog’s name we wish A Million Travels to all of you!!!

      Hello Maja!
      This is not our only work, it is a good income but not a full salary. We work hard for it to become so! When we travel we actually move to new countries where we can find regular jobs and save up money. We are not millionaires unluckily!!

      Take care!

    thank you for your reply – if i may be honest: I would like to ask your advice?
    I am multilingual (speak 5 languages), love travelling, am a musician singer pianist and also have business experience, but after some years in show business what gives me most love joy is travelling.. and so i think of how to make £ off travelling, or how to make £ while travelling and so i saw your blog.. and asked it as i wonder: whether i should start a blog? (great info on your site), or instagram? or youtube? there is so much info on internet it is very very daunting and overwhelming, and i lose all hope and want to hide away.. but just hope one day i could make it happen one day.. if you have any advice please let me know :) thank you once again!

      Well it all comes down to what you love the most, and if you can make your job something you like or at least not dislike, then put all yourself into it! We started off with the blog because we thought at that time it was the most natural thing that comes with traveling, writing about your journey. That took us 1 year to see some tangible results, but as told it’s not a full salary yet. So we decided to focus harder on photos and instagram, and same again after 6+ months we saw some decent outcome. There’s a lot of competition on the internet, but if your content is good and you are very persistent you will stand out after some time. We have been having regular jobs, part-time or full time, while doing this, because of course we need jobs. If one works 12 hours a day on his website/youtube/instagram, he may get results in fewer months, otherwise it will take you some more. Just do what you feel is the right thing for you and something you would love to do, because on some days it will really be for 12-14 hours straight! Hope this helps!

    thank you very much for replying! i used to have a travel blog before, and now consider many options: youtube, instagram, travel blog.. many bloggers say ‘ it will take years’! to see any results, it is all quit overwhelming (i do it all on my own) esp as i have my other lives and work etc, so i am feeling in despair some days.. there is so much on internet, so many amazing bloggers insta stars etc.. how can i even compete? how can i even start? with iphone 7 plus and mac, and nothing more .. i will try on instagram now.. having no camera ha! just because i am not sure i would be able to manage blog now but will add blog later. your website is fab so thank you super much for all tips!!

      You are welcome, this kind of feedback makes us glad and gives us strength to keep on doing this! Don’t be demotivated even before starting, when you launch your website/page you are already off to a new beginning, and then you can proceed step by step! Good luck with your new adventure!
