About The Travelling Guru

Welcome to The Travelling Guru – a travel blog dedicated to helping fellow adventurers enjoy luxury travel on a budget.

We are Tasha and Brett, a couple of 20-somethings from the UK who have been hooked on exploring new places and taking on new adventures all over the globe since we got together in 2012. From European destinations such as Switzerland and Munich to Asian hotspots such as Japan, China and Singapore, the journey never ends.

We enjoy travelling as a couple on a budget but also love the finer things in life. Therefore, our mission is to do what we call:

“Living the high life while travelling on a budget”

We do this through savvy search and booking techniques and knowing where and when to look for the best deals on accommodation, transport and trips.

We also cut unnecessary costs in certain areas so that we can enjoy a few luxuries here and there.

We recently founded The Travelling Guru to provide a platform where we can offer our best advice and share our tried and tested tips and resources with you so you can also live the high life while travelling on a budget!

We also aim to inspire you to visit our favourite destinations and offer advice on where to go and what to do when you get there. Visit our destination guides for Asia and the UK and Europe here.

We hope you find something useful here on our blog and you can read more about our individual backgrounds and things we do around blogging below.
