Do you remember the last time you run out of money when you hit the road? Either because your overspent your cash or did some impulse buying. The feeling of discomfort that goes with it is really not nice, not to talk of the fear of being stranded on your journey. Traveling on a budget should be one of the most exciting things to do, or don’t you think so?

Here Is How To Travel On A Budget:

Proactive Checks: When you have to travel on a budget, make sure you have made all your checks with regards to prices of the transportation. You wouldn’t want to get to the train station or bus terminal and be surprised with the fare you have pay. You should also check out the different routes to your destination and see which of them the most convenient one is. So try to make all necessary inquiries about the fares of whichever transportation medium you are going to use for your journey.

Selection of most convenient medium: Hey who wouldn’t want to travel in the best bus or the fly in the first class section of Boeing 707 lol.., I wouldn’t miss that opportunity at all. However I’ve got go according to my means but if I can afford that in your budget why not.  So after checking all prices and options of traveling you select the best one according to your description of convenience as far as money is concerned.

Pack up some snack: I love to get myself busy always including my mouth, which is why I don’t do without my snacks on any journey. The real trick is that when you’ve got some snack with you, you don’t buy any and if you don’t buy, you save your money for the most important part of the journey. Simple trick right? Try it you will thank me later.

Resist Impulse Buying: This is my ultimate rule, stick to the budget no matter how enticing an item may be. I motivate myself to avoid it by telling my mind that “after all it’s only a few hours journey and it wouldn’t hurt a fly if I don’t buy”. It can really get tempting at times and that’s where I fix my head phones close my eyes, lay back and enjoy some good tunes.

Catch a Free Ride or Walk Part of it:
When hit with the scare of running low on budget and that I might get stuck on the way, I walk some part of it if possible, to shorten the distance. Shorter distance, lesser money paid. It’s sometimes actually good to walk especially when the cars are stuck in traffic. At the extreme levels, catch a free ride and save yourself the worry. However I’m very careful who I ask for a ride and I suggest you do and don’t do that if you don’t feel comfortable

The number of times you’ve tried
Can’t be equaled to the number of times the clock tics
When you think your life is at a stand still,
Remember the number of hours the sun hangs in the sky
Each day is a blessing in the armour of a test

Know the beat of your heart
And dance to its music
It’s rhythm should move your soul
Guided by your passion,
Your will to survive; be that breath of fire

Fire away to that Dreamland
Focus not on the roars of detractors
Listen to the inner you
Your ticket to the greater you
May be that which is ignored

You seek the bigger sign
And forget it takes you to make the difference
You made it a quest
When you already  had the answer;
You are the sign

Upon the heated lands of the village
Beside the gentle waters ,
Flowing from the eyes of Mother Earth.
Beneath the mountains there I sit.
Upon the soothing carpet of nature,
I draw my hope and inspiration.
For that is the only way I adore that which is within me.
My fingers yearn for the dirt it was made for.

I cry to the mountain of my fathers,
Seeking an audience at their banquet
But all I hear is a loud silence.
Dear fathers, my fingers yearn for the dirt it was made for.
I wail to the hearing of my mothers
But I’m met with loud laughs
The output of daily today gossips.

Time has come to give hope to the green leaf.
Give it a shade to harness it’s growth.
In my mansion of solitude
I create that which is not made yet.
But with no guidance I pack it into my tent.
Elders of our heritage!!!
Do we not see innovation is in shortage
Not because none exists, but none is natured.

The gateway to success stretches it’s arms wide
Let’s ride on the new tide
The tide of enhancing youthful skills.
The wave of generational innovation.
Our dear village hungers for a handshake with the youth.
Elders of our land,
Grant the green leaves a drink of empowerment.
For with mud our fingers are covered.

Take time to enrich yourself,
Have command over yourself
To produce a favorable solution.

Symbol of Africanism
Flawlessly branded in beauty
With the smile worth fighting for
Tirelessly you work for perfection
Breaking the boundaries yet mounted.
Ye are the symbol of Africanism.

Fighting for the virtues of Mother Africa,
You stand for genuity
For the sake of thine voice ,
We turn on our electric mirrors,
For thine smile allay our terrors
Ye are the symbol of Africanism.
