Hoboken, New Jersey
Hoboken, New Jersey is a vibrant town just on the other side of the Hudson River across from Manhattan. Both enjoyed sharing all that Hoboken has to offer with their friends for the past 3 years, however change is good. And change for us meant changing everything we were used to.
Our decision to travel around the world was made rather quickly, and also wasn’t too difficult for us. We didn’t own a house, didn’t have any debt and had saved enough money while working for over a decade. A year is still a long time to travel and in order to be able to afford it, we decided to backpack. Backpacking isn’t only budget friendly, but it’s also an incredible way to experience the culture of places you will be visiting. We will be using local transportation, couchsurfing where possible, staying in hostels and eating street food. This will be a drastic change from the posh Hoboken restaurants and weekly happy hours, but we are ready and excited for the new experience.
