Though we’re often traveling off the grid, email (thebstravelers@gmail.com) is still the best method of communication. 

Other Preferred Methods

 1. Birds – Written on paper and tied to doves – May take slightly longer but you’ll save tons of money on postage.

2. Morse Code – Dashes and dots through a wire – We may have to borrow your telegraph, ours is currently in storage.

3. Messengers – Through people on foot – Our preferred method especially if dressed as ELF.

4. Telepathy – Communication between minds by some means other than sensory perception – Don’t bother introducing yourself.

  1. I am booked on a trip to Iceland in Aug/Sept next year. Circumnavigating with Quark Expeditions, which as usual with this mob, includes lots and lots of leaping into zodiacs and going ashore to learn, walk, see, and talk to the locals. Having travelled with them before, I know it is going to be awesome. HOWEVER because Iceland is such a mind-blowing accident of continental drift I want to explore a lot more, either before or after the Quark trip. There is such a lot to see, and it seems a pretty jacked-up country for exploring. I want to know is there anyone who has been before, and can give me some feed-back? Or, better still, is there a BS traveller who will be in Iceland around that time and who wants to explore as well? (someone who wants to do that descent into the dormant volcano lava tube, type of person! lol)

    1. Helen, Iceland is penciled in as part of our RTW trip. We don’t know much about the country yet though. We think it would be awesome to travel to Iceland with
      Quark, however after Antarctica, most of our travels would probably have to be completed independently due to budgets and costs. We purposely saved for Antarctica Expedition prior to leaving for our RTW trip to account for the cost of traveling with expedition specialists/teams. There was another RTW couple that put together a very nice post on how they did Iceland on a budget. I can’t seem to find it right now. If I come across it, I will be sure to add it as a link on our blog here.

  2. Thanks for that Audrey. Yes I know Quark isn’t the cheapest way to travel, but there are occasions when you have to evaluate the cost and the benefit. When it comes to out of the way places like the polar regions, you can’t muck about. And Quark certainly delivers value for money – without the glitz and luxury that would seriously put it out of contention. (Not that I like luxury anyway). In 2006 the Quark ship was a very small one, and basically a rust-bucket, having been a research vessel, but I loved it like that. Who on earth needs a fancy cabin and having to dress for dinner? But Quark trips are top notch when it comes to food, service, adventure, education and experiences. And their staff are fantastic.They have got all their priorities right. Backpacking and doing your own thing is great, but the circumnavigation of Iceland will be a really good trip, and then to go and explore more inland will open up new opportunities.
    I’d love to see that other post about Iceland, if you can find it. Give the penguins, albatrosses and baby seals my best wishes!

    1. Helen Quark does offer a great value. Maybe you’ll convince us to explore this option for our travels to that area. Seeing as that we are heading west towards The South Pacific and Asia first, not sure where we’ll be when! Thanks for following us along and for all your great comments and advice!

  3. Hi!

    My wife and I are contemplating doing what you are doing in a couple of years, and we’re trying to plan ahead as much as possible. I love your budget breakdowns. They really help us visualize ourselves doing what you are doing.

    I have one question. Where do you stay and how do you pick the places you stay?

    Thanks, and have fun!

    1. Thanks Shawn,
      We mostly use Airbnb to stay in apartments. We have stayed in a few hostels, guest houses, hotels, and B&Bs along the way too. Traveling through Patagonia, hostels are almost a must due to limited options. For the first portion of our trip, (up through Japan) all our accommodations are documented in our blog. The funny thing is, that is always one of our biggest questions too, so we felt it was important to show others where we stayed. If we can be of any help, please let us know. Thanks for saying hello and stopping by!

    1. Hi Helen,

      My husband and I have not yet tried couchsurfing. To be honest, traveling as a couple we tend to enjoy our privacy and our own space (especially enjoying long, lazy mornings drinking coffee in our PJs). However, two of my female travel idols – Sherry Ott and Lisa Lubin – have raved about their couchsurfing experiences! They have written some nice blog post write ups saying what a great experience it is to connect with a local as a solo traveler! I attached Sherry Ott’s blog post about it. You can see how much she recommends the couchsurfing experience. Definitely an option for some!

  7. Hey guys. I’m from Romania and by accident I stumbled on some news and your “official press release” as a reply for the bombardment of critic. First of all yes Romania is not the safest or cleanest country and indeed this is the truth – the problem is that this truth, as well as “authentic honesty” bothers people and various organizations. But this is not relevant. I have to congratulate you for calling out these travel bloggers who do some things for profit and public image. If they are happy about receiving candy is their problem – but indeed they present a false image for traveling and also for the places visited, coating the experience with flowers and pretty words when the truth is that sometimes travel can be difficult and present all kind of edgy situation and hardships. I came back myself from a long travel- with hitchhiking, sleeping in tent and so on so I know there are other facets besides the pink one. Good luck to you guys.
