Welcome To The Busy Rats!

The Busy Rats is a travel blog run by Elise Peregrin and Andrew London, two broke yet adventurous college students looking to get the most out of their lives. We started this website to document our journey and inspire those around us to simply get up, get out, and do something! We believe that exploring the world, learning different perspectives, taking risks, and accepting uncertainty can be one of the most beneficial leaps you can take. We may not have the funds nor the experience, but we are using every penny we make to learn the ropes of globetrotting. We hope you enjoy sharing our journey, and experience the world boldly and plentifully alongside us. 

Meet the Rats!
