Hi! I am so happy that you are here!
Welcome to Focused Travels!
If you are a part-time traveler, you know what it’s like to want to travel and see as much as possible within the limited number of leave days we have. Limited leave days and budget mean we have to plan carefully to explore a destination fully.
That is why I created Focused Travels – your time and money is precious, but you still want to see as many sights as possible for as little money as possible when visiting your own or a foreign country. Planning your own trip and making all the arrangements can overwhelm you, which is why I provide practical tips to make it easier for you.
I am Sabs, from Johannesburg in South Africa. I am a full-time professional in the financial services sector. Although I find my job challenging and rewarding, I also love getting away from it all to explore destinations – both locally and internationally. I love experiencing new things and exploring new places after work, during work trips and holidays.
This is why I started Focused Travels. Since I work full time and can only travel on a part-time basis, I need to maximize my time and money for my travels.
What you will find on the Focused Travels blog
I started this blog for several reasons. Initially, it was purely for keeping a record of my travels and keeping my friends and family up-to-date with what I have been up to. Since I plan all my trips (local and international) myself from beginning to end, I have learned some valuable lessons along the way, and wanted to share our experiences with others.
Through this blog, I hope to give a bit of guidance for those part-time travelers who feel overwhelmed when they have to plan a trip themselves. My blog posts include stories, tips, resources and review covering:
- Itineraries, routes, tips, and resources to experience the best South Africa offers;
- Itineraries, tips, and resources for international travel.
- South African and international hotel reviews;
- Day trips and outings in and around Johannesburg;
- How to make the most of a work trip; and
- Budgeting tips.
I hope you will find my posts useful and that it will inspire you to plan your own trips confidently! Join our mailing list to make sure you miss none of my posts!
