How to find cheap flights?

We all love flying around the world and travel. Some travel once or twice a year as a form of detox from the daily life, responsibilities and work. For us travelling is a hobby or even a way of living. However, flying is known to be a costly way of travelling. We’re living in Ireland. It’s an isolated place from the rest of the world. Every time we want to go somewhere we are more or less forced to hop on a plane and fly. 

We’re flying quite frequently and planes are no less common to us now than buses and trains were when we were living on the continent. It sucks a little bit as our options to travel are a bit limited and most of the tickets are – indeed – quite expensive. But not all of them.

If you’re like us – in love with traveling – you’re probably looking to get to your destination as cheap as possible so you could invest more at your destination instead. We’ve been learning the techniques to achieve this goal for the past several years and we’ve got a few tricks and tips to share.

Atlas mountains by Maciej Zawieja

Snow in Morocco – Rabat & Atlas

In March 2018 I’ve visited Morocco for the second time in my life. The main goal of the trip was to reach Atlas Mountains and attempt to climb Toubkal – the highest peak of Northern Africa.

I’ve made it. Well, partially. I’ve reached the Atlas Mountains and I’ve been sleeping on the slope of Toubkal. My young heart had synchronized for a little white with the old rocky heart. They have collided and crashed. We’re in a contradictory love. However, I didn’t make it to the top.

Let’s start from the beginning. We’re three friends hopping on a plane to Rabat with loaded backpacks. We’ve chosen to go in March. It was a wise decision made upon previous experience. The last time I’ve been in Morocco it was July. The temperatures were reaching 45 degrees.

Melting at Lycian Way trek, Turkey

Sea, mountains, valleys, history, sun and infinite path are the best words to describe the modern trek following the ancient Lycian Way in Southern Turkey. It is a marvelous and demanding hike which goes through plentiful ascends, descends, wonderful valleys, beaches and villages. I had decided to give it a try. My initial aim was to trek for 9 days and finish after about 170 km walked. The whole trek has around 500 km. I bough tickets for the second part of June which is already a very hot month in Turkey. Well, the area of the trek is also considered as one of the hottest regions of the country. It was quite an unfortunate situation, but I decided to go anyway. I walked for five days. The temperatures were reaching nearly 40 degrees. My path had started in Ovacık and it had finished at Patara Beach. Follow me on these hundred sweaty kilometers of an incredible adventure.
