Snow Globe Travellers

Snow Globe Travellers

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

Work. Travel. Save. Repeat.


Hi! We are Katia and Nicole, just a couple of gals who love to travel and are always on the move!

After becoming friends almost instantly after meeting in our first year of university, we decided to travel together for two months on our break. What an adventure it has been!

Join us as we take you through the culture of different countries and share with you the stories of our endevours.


Snow globe of Angkor Watt

Cambodia is honestly a hidden gem of southeast asia. Not enough people know about Cambodia and the brilliant historical beauty it has to offer. If you ever find yourself in this wonderful country, you should definitely start in Siem Reap and check out the renowned Angkor Wat temple which is also said to be the largest religious monument in the world. While you’re at Angkor Wat, you might want to go to the Ta Prohm temple where Tomb Raider was filmed - so watch the movie if you haven’t already!


Snow globe of the Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China  – just wow! 21, 196 kilometers of absolute wonder (not that we walked the whole thing.) This historical place in Beijing was probably one of our favorite places. One of the seven wonders of the world ticked off our bucket list, I would say that’s an achievement! Although it felt like 1000 degrees, the walk was absolutely worth it. Definitely recommend doing it with a tour guide so you get to hear the history about the wall as you walk!


Snow globe of the Sungnyemun Gate

Namdaemun, officially known as the Sungnyemun, is one of the Eight Gates in the Fortress Wall of Seoul, South Korea, which surrounded the city in the Joseon dynasty. It also happens to be Korea’s No. 1 National Treasure. Unfortunately, the gate is no longer original as it has undergone restoration from due to arson in 2008, however the gate is still a great attraction as it was built in 1396 and it also looks great at night so stick around there for the gate’s night display as well as the Nandaemun Night Market.


Snow globe of the Petronas Towers

Although only the largest tower from 1998 -2004, the Petronas Towers is still a magnificent sight! Walking across the skybridge, which sits on the 41st floor 170 meters off the ground,was something we will never forget. The most amazing sight however was from the Observation Deck on the 86th floor. Here we got a 360 degree view of the entire city of Kuala Lumpur and wow - what a sight it was!The fireworks at night were the best part! Another place that should definitely be added to your bucket lists.


Snow globe of the Merlion

Singapore, although it's always very busy with people absolutely everywhere, is an absolutely beautiful country! We must say, the Merlion is definitely one of the must-see tourist attractions in Singapore. The Merlion (meaning sea lion) encompasses the origin of Singapore as it was once a fishing village. The view of the statue just after sunset was absolutely incredible amongst all the other beautiful buildings. It is definitely something that should be on your to-do list if you’re ever in this incredible country – that and of course the amazing, Universal Studios! Who doesn’t love a good theme park?


Snow globe of St. Andrew's Church

Built on a hill in honour of the Apostle, Andrew - this church is a magnificent sight. Never have we seen so much culture and history in just one building. Even the view from the hill was absolutely incredible. Old churches these days are SERIOUSLY underrated! If  you’re ever in Kyiv and you’re a total historic nerd like us (or even if you’re not) - this is definitely a place to check out!.


Snow globe of the Canadian Rockies

If you ever find yourself in the Land of the Maple Leaf, you should make your way over to the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia and Alberta. The Canadian Rockies is a mountain range that spans both states with jagged, ice-capped peaks and towers Mt. Robson, it's a region of alpine lakes, diverse wildlife and outdoor recreation sites. If I had the chance, I would go back in a heartbeat. It really is a sight you certainly do not want to miss out on!


Snow globe of Yosemite

Yosemite national park is known for its picturesque environment. In Yosemite, try out Half Dome and Glacier Point which were carved by ice over millions of years, it is only accessible in non-winter months due to snow cover, and icy conditions! Still, that leaves Verna Falls and Nevada falls open which aren’t easy hikes either but provide a stunning view. The most memorable part about Yosemite is during winter when the sun sets over the national park, the top of Half dome catches the sun resulting in an orangey pink reflection that is simply unlike anything you will ever see.

How do you both have the money to travel?

We both work part time and save money. We also travel on a budget, where we budget every single day which means a lot of financial planning. This is why it’s good to travel with an itinerary we create together.

What inspired you to create a blog?

We thought that since we travel a lot, why shouldn’t we share our experiences with everyone? If not, our experiences are merely good memories we reflect back on. That’s why by creating our blog, we are able to not only share our experiences again but we can also help others who are looking for advice on where to go and what to do.

How can you learn about a culture and meet locals without speaking their language?

We’re not gonna lie, it can be difficult at times, but that’s all part of the experience, to challenge yourself and learn new things. There are quite a few people who speak English in all the countries we travel to, but if not, we make it work and communicate through facial expressions hand gestures.
