Hi, I’m Raphael and this is my blog, Being Foreign. Unlike other travel bloggers, I don’t have a cool origin story. I didn’t sell all my belongings to travel full-time or dropped out of university. I still go to work and stuff. How boring. But I still want to see the world. This is what I’m doing now. Working at a job and still trying to travel as much as possible. I try to travel on a tight budget and show you that there are trips that suit every budget – even yours. Traveling alone on a budget. That’s what Being Foreign is all about.
I took a solo trip in 2015 and I’ve been hooked ever since. That was the furthest I had ever traveled and it was also the first time I ever traveled alone. Ever since that trip I save every dime I earn for my next adventure. So far I have visited 18 countries in my life which means there’s still a lot to see. I want to visit the rest and share my experiences on this blog.
I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places as well. Feel free to leave a comment, follow me on social media or drop me a line if you would like to know more!
