- Hey everyone, and welcome to Nerds That Travel where I will be posting about my trips as well as any reliable travel gear/nerdy gear that I come across. I would love to hear of everyone’s travel stories!
My Personal Travel Experience
I am just starting out on what I hope will be many years of travels! I first traveled to Costa Rica in my teenage years, zip lining over rivers, riding horses and enjoying hot springs and mud baths. My family and I stayed in a private villa at a very nice resort in Tamarindo, where we witnessed a wedding on the beach.
In 2016 I visited the Blue Hole in Jamaica where I got to swing into electric blue pools and climb down waterfalls (which was thrilling!). Shortly afterwards I went to two beaches in Mexico. Costa Maya and Cozumel were both beyond beauty. White sand and perfectly clear blue water. Perfect for relaxation.
Last year I made a leap and decided to Visit the UK alone! I spent two weeks making my way around England and Scotland and it was a great experience. I booked a hiking tour in Scotland and a sightseeing tour in England. History is another topic that holds my attention like no other so naturally a historic tour from London to Edinburgh was a good time. Scotland has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and the best way to see it is with an awesome hike. There’s a certain magic. Not to sound to cheesy.
The very next trip in planning will take my self and a few friends into the rest of Europe where we will not only visit London, but Paris and Venice! we might even try to fit Barcelona in there somewhere.
I am also a huge Nerd deep down. So any Marvel, LotR, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and any historical dramas, make me very happy. I plan to visit a few famous movie and TV show places. In Scotland, I visited Doune castle which was used in the filming of a couple of my favorite shows. It was featured as the keep at Winterfell in Game of thrones and as Castle Leoch in Outlander.
I myself don’t like guessing which gear is reliable or which places actually look like the pictures that they post and I plan to document everything and give the best advice that I can find. I will be adding new content regularly and in the meantime would love to meet other nerds out there and hear their stories.
My Goal is to not only find good travel gear and information, but to also mark some of the nerdiest activities to be found in each city that I visit. And meet fellow traveling nerds along the way!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
