How to Manage your Travel



Are you planning a trip? Do you get stuck on the visa process and wish there was an easier way to calculate what you need for where you’re going?

If you are reading this, I think we can all agree that travel is one of the biggest game changers you will ever face. The world seems like a pretty small place when you grow up in the same kinds of neighborhoods with the same kind of people. The world has a huge diversity but we’re all stuck in our same circles, until we break that bubble. Most think a trip to the Bahamas or Hawaii is all they need to get a taste of something a little less processed than American culture. The smarter ones know there is so much more to experience than a drink on the beach near the equator. The smartest have already been and now have to do their travel frequently to keep up rare and exciting relationships with their friends from other countries.

It can be hard to keep everything in check for traveling to different countries. You need passports, visas, and maybe even international driver’s licenses. The bigger obstacle you have and definitely aren’t thinking about when you’re preparing for travel, however, is the amount of time your visa is allowed at the destination you’re headed. What do you do if you’re visiting your best friend in Germany and they requested off of work for the month, not realizing you were only able to stay two weeks as your visa allowed? Or you found the love of your life in New Zealand but you work in Spain and you want to vacation together in Belize? Applying for travel visas are an incredible pain on their own, but going through all that work and finding out you only get one month together when you were hoping for three is disheartening.

I know a couple, we’ll call them Tanner and Manka, who stumbled across each other in Russia. Tanner was from the United States, though, so their relationship had its restrictions. In order to spend their time together, Tanner travels to Russia as often as he can but is required to have a visa. Manka isn’t even able to get a visa for the United States since she carries a Russian passport. To make their visits easier on each other, the couple tells me they travel to countries that allow you to visit visa-free like Georgia and Argentina while doing some sightseeing along the way; they do this without a hitch through a website called Visa Calculators.

How Visacalculators works :

All you have to do is select the two countries you are trying to compare visa free. For instance, if you choose Ireland and Germany, you’ll get a list of all the countries the passport holders for these two countries would be able to visit visa free and, conveniently, how long they can stay without them. Since I am from Germany, my Irish boyfriend and I could stay in the Czech Republic for the rest of our lives if we wanted to without having to go through the entire visa process. Good timing for me to find out, too! I was just planning on my retirement!
