We’re Currently Traveling! — Latest Updates
Where Are We Now?
You’ve heard it before: “I don’t have the time or the money.” We say otherwise.
We’re your everyday college/grad students and young professionals who love to travel, ignoring the “Yeah, but…” excuse, kicking the bucket list, and jet setting around the world as much as we can while with a full-time job or as full-time students. In the past 4 years, we’ve taken over 130 of our readers to 70+ countries on countless independent trips without skipping a day of class, asking for extra vacation days, or touching our savings.
Besides writing about how to travel with no time or money, we’re inviting you to join the 130+ other monsooners on coming on OUR TRIPS! Put money where your mouth is, and don’t let your dreams be dreams.
Meet Some of Our Travelers:
[Since my first trip with The Monsoon Diaries], I’ve been to more places in the last year than I have been in my entire life.
And in another seven days, I will board a plane for my fourth Monsoon in the last year, this time to Eastern Europe, as a third-time veteran of The Monsoon Diaries’ family. . . .Cynthia Koo
[Remembering] this, after only a few days of home life, brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for a life changing experience. The highs and lows of the last two weeks are the reason why it would be the best two weeks of my life.Melissa Le
It has been a great privilege to travel with the Monsoon Diaries. They live, breathe, and thrive by “taking the road less traveled”. In other words, they travel without maximal comfort, and with ever-fluid and constantly tinkered itineraries. If we can take that leap of faith away from the “resort” experience, what we experience with the Monsoon Diaries is invaluable: the chance to witness wildly beautiful landscapes, to make human connections with our global neighbors, and to learn exactly what we ourselves are made of. It is absolutely worth not having constant 3G network, or even having a flush toilet.
. . . Calvin Sun is the heart and soul of the Monsoon Diaries. All these trips are possible only with his vision and enthusiasm, and the strength of his personality draws together all sorts of people who share that willingness to see what’s out there. “Taking the road less traveled” is never easy, but with Calvin, it’ll never be lonely or boring. . . .Tan Nguyen
