Hi everyone and welcome to my Affordable-Journey website. Since I was a little kid, I have been passionate about traveling. I was lucky that my parents were also fond of traveling hence I got to explore different parts of the world and in turn learn about various accessories required when traveling.
Through this website, I would like to share some learning on what items to carry with you when traveling by providing you with reviews on different products which I believe are essential while “journeying” and at the same time are economical.
The idea here is to provide you with one-stop shop of the best affordable items for a particular year which will make your travel cost-effective.
A Little Story About My Traveling Life
Among my siblings, I was the only one who loved traveling, my brother and my sister thought and still think that going somewhere results in too much of a change in routine. I was always the one who encouraged my parents to the point where I was annoying to “get out of the house” even if we have to go for a quick shopping round.
Born and brought up in Dubai, I was already in one of the top vacation spots in the world. I spent 16 years of my life in Dubai, I literally have seen Dubai’s 360 degrees transformation from a desert in the 80s to now being best described as “opulent”. 90’s was the decade when a massive influx of travellers started visiting Dubai and my understanding of people and products started changing for good. “Global Village” – an event where there are booths set-up from various countries in a common place became popular around the 90s and I just absolutely loved visiting it.
Along with their mannerisms, one thing that really caught my eye was the products that these visitors were carrying with themselves and slowly but surely I got hooked to the travel accessories and the wide range of them. This was also the time when as a family we started to visit various places (Canada, U.S, Cuba, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan to name a few) and I continued with my observation and exploration of the various types of travel accessories.
Now, I would like to bring years of observation together through this website and provide you with all the essential items that are required to travel, available in the market today and are low on budget.
What Is In It For You?
Times have changed, people’s priorities have changed, products have changed but essentially the usage of the products have stayed the same. Due to hundreds of different products available in the market, it is very difficult to decipher which products are better than the others (are you paying the right price? what is the value of the product to you? why is it essential? will it cater to everyone in the family?) – DO NOT WORRY!! I AM HERE!! I will answer these questions and more.
I want to make your travel as “STRESS-FREE” as possible, already there are too many things to worry about when traveling, what to carry with you should not be one of them. This website will cater to a wide audience, there will be different product reviews posted irrespective of the age and gender of the audience.
So have a look around, if you have any questions or want to share something, feel free to leave them below and I will definitely respond as soon as possible.
