About Stingy Nomads..
Hi! We are Campbell and Alya a full time travel couple that have been exploring the world together for 4 years. Welcome to our travel blog!
In January 2014 we were both traveling in South East Asia. We met in this little surf hostel on Luzon Island. We stayed in the same dormitory and ended up exploring the Philippines together, 4 years later and married we are still traveling.
Dr. Campbell Louw is South African and used to worked as a research scientist with a PhD in biotechnology. Alya Akhmetgareeva is Russian and used to work as a linguist teaching English, Russian and Spanish, she has a Masters degree in Linguistics.
How do you still travel?
The blog is our project and contributes something. Campbell freelances as a Scuba Instructor. Alya teaches English online.
Why Stingy Nomads…
Stingy because we try to travel and do as much as we can on the tightest budget possible. We would rather spend money on doing amazing things than on transport and accommodation. Nomads because we have been on the road for a couple of years, constantly moving.
We would love to hear from you, so don’t be shy to comment give suggestions or ask questions!
