Via is Italian for “street.” Many people travel for landmarks in big cities, but it’s hard to experience the real city this way.
In English “via” also means traveling through…
- traveling through (a place) en route to a destination.“they came to Europe via Turkey”
- by way of; through.“they can see the artists’ works via a camera hookup”
To truly experience the city, walk its streets.
A tour bus won’t provide that flexibility; you’ll need to get on foot or bike and really explore all of what it has to offer.
You can pass by a weird alley?
Walk through it – there might be your favorite bar in the world just waiting for you around the bend!
See colorful building around corner with an interesting nameplate out front?
Check this place out too- they’ve got whole neighborhoods painted up just for you!
Maybe you’re lost now in your journy…? Good.
Good times are ahead because exploring means experiencing something new every day…

Ok via, why do you travel?
Travel is the one thing that reminds us how to be human.
Travel forces you to realize what’s important in life – and it isn’t your beanie babies or suburban America, big house, SUV and 2.5 kids kind of life.
It’s experiencing different cultures through food, art and music; taking chances on new opportunities for personal growth because they might make a difference somewhere down the line (and not just when we’re sitting at home feeling sorry for ourselves).
Sure some people are judgmental but let them be!
We live our lives largely based off experience so all those little moments count more than anything else could ever hope do…
Like the first time you tried a real Parisian omellete on the Rue de Rivoli or enjoying the pure bliss of sitting canalside in Amsterdam with an ice cold Heineken.
A travel site was born.
We get it, there are a ton of travel blogs and websites out there. We made our first travel blog in 2010 – RIP blogspot – and the zest for adventure just never stopped coming.
While on our honeymoon we realized most sites focused on budget travelers, major cities or luxury seekers- these topics were all fantastic but lacked that real feet-on-the ground itinerary so intrinsic to traveling abroad.
Travel is much more than written content; It’s about seeing, hearing & feeling your experience through one of life’s greatest adventures– Explore Now!
Our mantra: always keep moving.
We created a website to give some advice and hopefully inspire people to get out of their comfort zone.
We live and breathe Anthony Bourdain’s quote:
“If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody.”
Let’s seize the day together.
ViaTravelers is a blog and social media channel that features the best of travel on a budget, including deals, tips, guides, destination suggestions and more.
ViaTravelers’ mission is to inspire people to take that flight deal and go with no reservations.
