Hi, I’m Sibu! A global citizen, foodie, and fan of everything that this world has to offer. You’re on the right page if you want to:
learn how to take advantage of free international travel opportunities
move abroad at some point. Temporarily or permanently!
travel smartly by stretching your money, and your mind!
I have been traveling and moving around the world since I was a baby. And when I was 17, I had the opportunity to move to China on my own. And I took advantage of it. That’s where my journey really begins. I didn’t have a lot of money, but my priority was to travel. And I made it work.
Through trial and error, I’ve managed to travel to dozens of countries around the world. I left “home” on a one-way ticket 16 years ago, and I haven’t stopped since. And no, despite what people might think, there are no rich parents, s()g@r d@ddies or hidden boyfriends funding all of this.
I’ve worked and studied abroad. I’ve dealt with visas, job hunting and trying to make ends meet and I have learned so much along the way. I’ve also found ways to travel for free. And I’m using this page to pass on my knowledge, because as cheesy as this sounds, I truly believe that most of the world’s problems could be solved through travel. We are not as different from each other as we think we are. And while I know that travel isn’t accessible for everyone, my aim with this page is to help you make that trip, or move abroad, happen.
So come along. I’m so happy to have you here. And Go Global with Sibu.
Here I am as a 17-year-old, being dropped off in a Chinese Language school in Guangzhou, China. It’s early 2006. I have no phone, no resources, not even a dictionary to rely on. I don’t speak a word of Chinese and people rarely spoke English then. And I set off to live on my own. Not having the slightest clue of what I was doing, but just taking advantage of the opportunities out there. That was a one-way ticket. This is how the journey begins.
