About – Rich Culture


Want to travel? Want to be able to stay longer, have more fun and meet interesting people? You are in the right place. Rich Culture will give you travel tips, ideas and other useful information so you can save money and have more fun.


What works? What doesn’t?   You don’t have to make the same mistakes as me.


Hi, I’m Richard

I want to encourage others to travel the globe just as I have. I want to share with you my experiences, my blunders and what I learn. Hopefully this makes your travel even better, saving you time, money and giving you a richer experience, a Rich Culture experience 😉






What have I learnt so far?

  • Just because it is different doesn’t mean it’s bad
  • Eating street food won’t kill you
  • People have various morals that can be vastly different to yours
  • Making friends with locals pays tenfold.
  • Staying longer is cheaper


What will you learn?

You can learn from my mistakes, you can learn what works and what doesn’t.

You will see different places from around the globe, hopefully some that are off the regular tourist trail. There are 196 countries to choose from! Let’s get going 🙂

Having an adventure doesn’t mean you need to be an adrenalin junky, it just means stepping out of your comfort zone a little and seeing what happens. It may be difficult at times but don’t be fearful. You will be surprised at how much fun it is and be thankful afterwards. You did it!!

Travel gives you another perspective on life and makes you grow as a person. When you return home, you will have a greater understanding of the world, people and yourself.

So what’s next?

It’s time to make the transition from occasional travel to full time!

I want to travel for an extended period just to see if I can. I have travelled before, often staying places for 3, 6, or 7 months at a time but then returning home again.

This time I want to see if I can make it longer, one year? Two? Who knows! Other people do it, well so they say.

I want to try and see what happens. I will give it my best shot.


What’s in it for you?

You will learn everything I do, that’s what…  Maybe you are interested in the same thing. Maybe you just want to learn how to travel cheaper and have an adventure. Maybe you are interested in culture. Maybe you are just interested in seeing what will happen. Let’s find out together!


The not so big plan.

I have not really planed anything yet, nor have I saved much money.

Instead I have been working hard on building this website to try and make a bit of income to get me going. I don’t want to make millions, I just need enough to get by.

But so far…. Not so good. I have made zero $$ and it has cost me money to set up.

Have no fear, I will still go on!


Where will I go?

I will pick a country soon and go to see what happens. I would like to stay at each location for 3 months or more if I can, but that will depend on the visas available at each location.

Also I would really like to buy a (Canon) DSLR before I go, or buy one from the first country I stop in.  A good “cheap” price is what I am after. This may play a part in where I travel to first. I will keep you up to date through this site.

*Update – I got a canon 760d and a 16 – 35 mm canon lens. Finally I can take quality photos for you all 😉

What will I do?

Your guess is as good as mine! I am not sure yet, I am still working on it. I like to plan only a little and keep my options open, it adds to the adventure.  At this stage, the cheaper the better! Aiming for departure again soon.


Thank you for coming to Rich Culture, I really hope you will stick around for the upcoming adventures.
