About Survive Travel

Hey there, I’m Bert!

I’m here to tell you about this website.

Survive Travel Provides Tips on Living and Traveling all around the World

What You’ll Find on This Blog

“Things to Do” Lists

These are good for long and short-term travelers and they include lots of things I don’t even do. Actually, one of my favorite things is to create a huge list and do the things I couldn’t find a “free for use” photo for. Getting to these places is always a bit of an adventure.

Some of these list posts have tips about living in the place also.


Trying the local food is one of my favorite things about traveling. When I cook I’m a vegetarian. When I’m taste testing the world, my morality goes out the window.

Outdoor Adventures

I’m a big fan of getting outdoors so you will find a lot of posts on that subject. I love taking day hikes. It’s what I do most when exploring. I also enjoy multi-day trekking, snorkeling, caving, canyoning, mountain bike riding, surfing, etc. Pretty much any outdoor activity besides boating.

Do you offer outdoors activities or tours? Let’s collaborate! Click here to learn more.

About Me and “Survive Travel”

I’ve been traveling and living in different countries since 2003. Yep, I got the travel bug in my early 20’s and never shook it.

Like most young travelers, I started off as a backpacker. I got working visas, saved up, and then traveled. Sometimes I would travel non-stop for months, going on adventures and getting into trouble. Even when I ran out of money (which was more often than I’d like to admit) I would find creative places to sleep and scrape up food somehow. That’s when I started this blog.

Hence the name “Survive Travel”.

These days I still love to travel, and I still love the outdoors, but I like to take things much slower. I prefer to stay in one spot for a few months and rent a small place in a local neighborhood.

Hence the by-line “Living Like a Local”.

How I Afford to Live all Over the World

I’m a minimalist and, luckily for me, I love traveling and living in cheap countries. Also, I have no debt and no dependents. But I still need a place to sleep, 3-6 meals a day (did I mention I like food?), and money to get to my next destination. I fund this via my 2 small websites.

Survive Travel actually makes very little money, though changing that is on my to-do list. The project that keeps me afloat is my other website – www.SurvivalFitnessPlan.com. Like this blog, it’s another passion project. If you are into survival and/or fitness, I’m sure you will find it interesting.

Incidentally, the best way to help me out is to buy a training manual. They are written by Sam Fury and Aventuras De Viaje.

    Good to see others that have the same mindset. Yet I am still younger to reach the goal of travelling more and experience life how it should be. Keep it up and safe travel :).
