No-frills Travel Stories

Life is an experience, and so should travel be. To me, that means taking long holidays and slow trips, spending less for more, and investing in the protection of the environment we take trips for.

Inspired Trip is about
No ads, No top-tens, No bias.

It is just honest accounts of what it‘s like to travel to different places. So whether you’re a seasoned traveller or an armchair adventurer, my tales of budget travel will inspire you to explore the world on your own terms.

Behind the Trip


Web developer, chill tripper, Malaysian.

16 countries extensively travelled and more to come.

I grew up in a small quaint town in Malaysia on the island of Borneo. When I was 18, I left for my studies and had been “abroad” since.

Perhaps because I had lived more than I had travelled in those foreign places, I took a different approach to travel. I am often on the road wandering and looking for small things sometimes not on the maps. I rest a lot on my vacations instead of being always on the go. I listen to the locals and learn how they take local transport or where they buy their meals. I occasionally splurge for extra dopamine as a treat to myself.

As I continue my life journey, I learn how to make the most of my time and expenses, and come out of my shell to make valuable friends. Now, I share these stories to the world.

FYI, I had previously written more stories and posted photos in a separate blog here.
