Drimsim – First universal SIM card

Drimsim — the first universal SIM card for travelers

Drimsim is the first universal SIM card and free app for travelers.

Drimsim is a real SIM card.
It’s plastic and with a chip, like any other. You can insert it into your phone, tablet or router. The difference is that it is not tied to an operator. As your plane lands in a new country, Drimsim is immediately ready for work.

Drimsim operates in 229 countries, provides stable communication, a fast Internet and prices almost like local operators.

You can call your friends, and they can call you. You can chat, post photos, make routes and not be afraid that you will spend all your money on roaming.

What developers say

“We negotiate directly with the operators. Therefore, Drimsim is cheaper than roaming and SIM cards from other providers.

We have an app to help you keep track of your expenses. The balance can be refilled manually or by autopayment. Money is written off in seconds and megabytes, but not for packages or subscriber”.

Benefits for Drimsim users:

● A universal SIM card for all foreign countries;
● No need to set up roaming or buy a local SIM card;
● Free app to check rates and usage down to seconds and kilobytes;
● No limit on traffic and calls;
● No subscription fees or hidden fees;
● Communication prices are comparable to the offers of local operators;
● Fast delivery of the SIM card (1-2 days).

G Adventures

Our Story

In 1990, I launched G Adventures with the belief that other travellers would share my desire to experience authentic adventures in a responsible and sustainable manner. We've grown from a one-man show to a company of more than 2,200 worldwide in 28 offices, and from a handful of trips in Latin America to more than 700 adventures spanning the globe... and beyond! Our 200,000 travellers experience the real world with us every year. What hasn't changed is our passion for making sure you get behind the scenes to experience the real world in an authentic and sustainable manner.

Why Choose G Adventures?

G Adventures is an adventure travel pioneer offering the planet's most awe-inspiring selection of affordable small-group tours, safaris and expeditions. Our award-winning trips embrace authentic accommodation, exotic cuisine and local transport to put travellers on a first-name basis with the planet’s people, cultures, landscapes and wildlife.

  • 100% Guaranteed Departures
  • Lifetime Deposits
  • 24/7 Service


Our Core Values

In 1990, Bruce Poon Tip founded G Adventures with nothing more than two credit cards and a burning desire to create an authentic, sustainable travel experience like nothing the world had ever seen. By offering adventure-craving travellers an alternative to the resorts and cruises they were accustomed to, he not only changed the way people looked at their holiday time, but changed the face of travel forever. More than 28 years later, the only thing that hasn’t changed is an inherent belief in the core values that continue to inspire our being and business today.


Responsible Travel

How do you envision our world in 50 years? Our efforts in sustainability as an organization reflect our commitment to the idea that our children and grandchildren will have a wonderful natural environment to explore throughout their lives. Our role as a company is to ensure that we’re giving back more to the communities and the natural surroundings that we help you to visit than what is being taken away in our travels. Preserving cultural heritage and conserving and replenishing the natural environment, while improving the lives of local people, is the essence of our way of travelling and is integrated into every decision and action we take at G Adventures.

Our story

The year was 1988… While most of the world was dreaming of hoverboard-mounted lasers, joining wild pyramid schemes and listening to Milli Vanilli, two mates from Melbourne spurned these distractions and instead turned their youthful, entrepreneurial beards toward the thing they loved the most – travel.


Why travel with Intrepid?

The sixty-four thousand dollar question. Finding a travel company that fits just right is pretty important (and pretty difficult). But instead of bragging about what we do – great value group tours, local leaders, added extras etc. – we’d rather tell you why we do it. When it comes to adventure, attitude is everything.


Why small group travel?

The world’s a big place and it’s human nature to get out there and explore it. The only thing is, it’s a really big place. And there’s a heap of different languages to learn, borders to cross and cultures to negotiate. Small group adventure travel makes these things easy. Instead of worrying about logistics, you can focus all your energy on having the experience of a lifetime.


Responsible business

The world’s a pretty amazing place, and we like to do what we can to keep it that way. Travel should benefit the places it touches, and to that end we’ve made a commitment to be a responsible business. That means, amongst other things, we carbon offset our trips, we don’t ride elephants in Asia (or anywhere else), and we live sustainable travel every single day.

Exodus Travels

Welcome to Exodus


It began more than 40 years ago with two friends and one goal: to drive an overland track from London to the Minaret of Jam, Afghanistan.

Exodus was founded on the spirit of adventure, and though we’ve left the 90 day truck journeys in the rear-view mirror, it’s that spirit that still drives us today. 

It’s not just us that loves this style of travel; we’re thrilled to say that 97% of our customers would recommend us to a friend. 

What to Expect with Exodus: Small Guided Groups

If you’ve never tried adventure travel before, this is a great place to start.

You can join a small guided group, our most popular way to travel and how we started out. Group sizes vary depending on the trip, but on average you can expect 12-16 people, plus a fully qualified, experienced local leader. Their role is to keep you safe, take care of the logistics and give you a local’s insight and knowledge, helping you unlock your destination’s best kept secrets. It’s these little tips that you don’t find in guidebooks, and the conversations you have, that make a leader so integral to this style of trip.

If you’re on your own, you’ll be glad to know that around half of Exodus travellers book solo, so it’s rare you’ll be the only single traveller. We never charge you extra for being a solo traveller; you can choose to pay a single room supplement, or share a room with one other person of the same gender.

What to Expect with Exodus: Self-Guided

Perfect for adventurers who want to go at their own pace. Our active European self-guided adventures mean you have the back up of Exodus’ 40 years of experience, without sharing any of your holiday. Choose walking or cycling; we’ll send you detailed maps, route notes and guidance, book all your hotels and transfer your bags for you, leaving you free to enjoy a hassle-free holiday under your own steam.

What to Expect with Exodus: Tailormade

Exactly as it sounds, we’ll tailor a bespoke adventure that’s just for you. Either take inspiration from our group itineraries and tweak to suit you, or build your perfect adventure from the ground up. It’s the perfect way to celebrate a big birthday or anniversary with your loved ones. We can tailormake adventures from a minimum of two travellers, and you’ll benefit from all the experience and dedication of a highly trained and experience Exodus local leader.

Fully Protected Since 1974 

Plus, our transferrable deposits policy means you can rebook if you have to cancel your trip for any reason - without losing any money.
Established in 1974, we’re the original UK adventure holiday company. You can travel safe, knowing you’re with an established, reputable company. Exodus is fully ABTA and ATOL bonded so your booking is always legally covered.

Exodus has been given the Which? Recommended Provider award, one of a handful of travel companies that have met the specific customer-focused criteria for the accolade. Book with confidence knowing we’ve been independently rated. 

I’m Ready For Adventure!

With over 500 trips all over the world, covering all seven continents, it can be daunting to know where to start. Take a look at our top ten most popular trips for first time Exodus travellers for some inspiration.

Contiki are the world leaders in organized youth travel. Operating since 1962, we’ve been showing young travellers the world for over 55 years, so we like to think we know what we’re talking about. Oh, and did we mention our travel philosophy? We call it No Regrets – it’s kind of our way of connecting to the world around us, understanding how each and every travel experience shapes and changes us as a human being. Kinda deep, but pretty cool.

Being young, living with hope, and seeing the world for the very first time, is at the essence of why we exist. Some travel experiences you can only have when you’re young, and those are the experiences you have with Contiki. As a company we ourselves are young; we challenge convention, push boundaries, and sometimes turn a blind eye to our parents advice, so why wouldn’t we want the same from our travellers?


Let’s talk numbers. We travel to 6 of the 7 continents (Antarctica, one day you’ll be ours), offer over 300 trips in 50+ countries, and also have 8 different ways to travel, so basically wherever, whenever, and however you want to travel, we can make it happen.

We're not your average travel company. It was 1998 when we first linked up the best cities and destinations in Europe with a commitment to the independent traveller to make their time, cash and experiences go further. By being the alternative choice we have remained dedicated to our freestyle form of travel and our unique hop-on hop-off flexible coach network.



We live to travel and as travellers ourselves know what makes an unforgettable trip. Sometimes we show you around, other times you are free to explore, either way, we hope to give you choice and plenty of local knowledge.

This passion to explore the world (without costing the Earth) has also developed over the years into our innovative Adventures, be it island hopping in Greece and Croatia, trekking through Eastern Europe or discovering the ancient cultures of Egypt and Morocco.



Busabout is part of a small group of companies that share the same attitude. HAGGiS Adventures pioneered the budget backpacker experience in 1993 with their award-winning trips through Scotland, Cornwall and Wales with their passionate local Guides. In 1999, Shamrocker Adventures started running the same style of trips throughout Ireland with their equally world-famous 100% Irish Guides.

Putting it simply, we're a bunch of mates who really enjoy what we do. So, by choosing to travel with us, you will be sure to receive the same quality and exceptional good time. (We've even created a couple of discounts like our 'Mate's Rates' to thank you). And our 'Our Book & Go guarantee' means once you have booked, your trip is absolutely guaranteed to run. We never cancel our trips. We promise. Have a great time and see you on the road.



Travel impacts on the places and communities we visit and we have a responsibility to minimise this and 'give back'.

Growth International Volunteer Excursions

Our Mission




In order to truly inspire growth and achieve sustainable travel internationally, GIVE has adopted the Asset-based community development (ABCD) model which is a set of proven best practices in sustainable development that mobilizes a community’s own assets and resources as the basis for development. Furthermore, through providing hands-on and eye-opening learning experiences that foster authentic connections between volunteers and host community members, we are able to empower global citizens who will continue to spread GIVE’s values and ignite sustainable change worldwide.



In contrast to the traditional needs-based development model which focuses on local problems and relies on outside agencies for help, asset-based community development is a principle of international sustainable travel that emphasizes existing strengths and potentials within a community and empowers its members to take action. When identifying projects, we first assess the resources, skills, and knowledge already available in a community, unite the community around issues that inspire its members to act. Then we work alongside local leaders to form a plan of action to yield a positive impact.  GIVE’s ultimate goal is for our host communities to take full responsibility of our international volunteer projects as soon as possible.



As valuable as GIVE’s projects on the ground may be, they are just tiny drops in a vast ocean of global inequality.  Solving the world’s greatest challenges and ending extreme poverty will require a lifetime of collective action from ordinary people around the world.  Since 2012, by establishing genuine connections between our volunteers and host community members, educating volunteers on the world’s biggest challenges, educating them in sustainable tourism and inspiring them to take action, and providing alumni with post-trip tools and resources to increase their impact upon returning home, GIVE has become a powerful catalyst in activating thousands of global citizens across the planet.  These people will become the next generation of social entrepreneurs, parents, community leaders, educators and so much more – working together to end extreme poverty and uplift every member of the human race.  GIVE’s past volunteers are living proof that we should all stop viewing our contributions as just drops in the ocean, and started viewing the ocean as a collection of drops.

Smartphone is definitely smarter than us and is able to keep us addicted to it  !


Phones we choose for you


Beside main function of receiving or making calls there are many other things that are so useful in our daily life , especially if we travel.

Music is one of them. Load up favourite music before go anywhere, and the long waiting times at the airport or in the bus won’t seem so long anymore! (its good to have a good set of earphones. They’re worth it! )

Also, today some websites have a large selection of the latest movies and our favourite TV shows that we can download straight on our phone to watch later. They’re ideal when we want a long flight to go by smoothly! (many websites allow us to download movies and TV series and might be better options if we know how to upload them on our device).

One of the most useful things is of course GPS navigation together with different GPS applications. GPS is great on a road trip or even when walking through a city. The days of the paper map are long gone. So easely it can help us in many situations:

  • Need to know how to get from point A to point B while on foot?
  • Rented a car and want to know the best way to get to the golf course?
  • Finished our 18-holes and need to fill up our tank?
  • Lost in the jungle and want to know where to go?
  • Want to go to the museum with public transit?
  • Visiting a country where there are no addresses?
  • Want to see all the surrounding restaurants and hotels with descriptions, opening hours and reviews?
  • Can’t find the exact location you’re looking for? …

(it is always good advice to download the GPS Maps and applications to our smartphones so we can use it offline).

If it’s true for music and movies it’s true for books also: no need to bring the heavy paper version with us anymore. All we need to do is to download them on our phone! (while electronic books on smartphones are great when travelling, they can be tiring on the eyes. Try some of the many apps that are available – they have different display options and some might be more comfortable for our eye than others).

If we travel to foreign country and can’t understand local language, best thing would be to have translator and dictionary (or even voice recognition option) on our smartphones (usually we would need to have mobile data to use some of these applications offline… however some offline dictionaries can be downloaded if we don’t have WiFi or data available).

Book flights, trains, buses and hotel rooms! Today, 95% of things that need to be booked can be done so online. A lot of businesses have even shut down their call centres and refuse bookings anywhere but online. And finding an internet café can be a hassle. Even worse: business centres in hotels charge crazy rates. Booking everything from our smartphone is the easiest way to go.(our favourite booking websites might have apps and widgets available. Look for them in favourite app store!).

Having a smartphone is like having a computer in our pocket. With our phone, we can keep up with local and international news, we can see what our friends are up to back home, we can upload awesome pictures on our social networks pages, we can follow the local trends of our current location, we can make video calls with our relatives and much more.

There are many accessories that can help us use our smartphones on the road. Here are a few:

– Most phone chargers are equipped with a transformer which means that any power source will charge our phone. However we’ll need to carry an adapter for the power outlets for our destinations.

– Using our phone all day can kill our battery in a flash. Get a phone that has a removable battery  (buy back-up batteries) or buy an external charge (power bank) If phone’s battery cannot be removed.

– If phone has an SD Card slot, buy a 64GB or 128GB card, they’re relatively cheap. We’ll have all the space we need to store our music, videos and books.

after all…

  • In the next 10 years, we expect at least five billion people worldwide to own smartphones, giving every individual with such a phone instant access to the full power of the Internet, every moment of every day ….
  • Smartphones these days keep getting thinner and smarter people the opposite …
  • The average smartphone user checks his or her device every six and a half minutes …

  • The smartphone revolution is under-hyped, more people have access to phones than access to running water. We’ve never had anything like this before since the beginning of the planet.

Our smartphone dear LLET friend has already replaced our camera, our calendar and our alarm clock. Don’t let it replace our family !

The way we drive, the way we handle a car, is an expression of our inner feelings !

Car is an easy mode of transportation. Getting from point A to B has never been more convenient and easier than before. We don’t need to rely on public transportation for our daily commutes any more, and can enjoy the liberty and independence that comes with a car.

After purchase of our home, purchasing a vehicle is perhaps one of the largest investments we will ever make. Therefore, our vehicle isn’t just a vehicle, it’s like property. In times of need, we can sell it for a less expensive model, and use the money for something useful. In times of success, we can trade it in for something that comes with even better features, benefits and looks.

Driving on the open roads can be an extremely wonderful experience. While driving on some routes, we can enjoy the beauty of nature, such as forests, the ocean, rivers, lakes, deserts, forests, mountains, and hills. Our car can take us on an adventure that walking simply cannot.

For young adults who have college and university, life without personal transportation can be frustrating. It provides the ultimate convenience and could help them take their first step towards independence. They will not have to be dependent on family members or public transportation, and able to drive to college without any problems.

It can also be frustrating to carry heavy bags from stores on foot or in a bus. We will not have to go through this hassle if we have a vehicle. Cars come with a trunk that provides sufficient space to easily transport plenty of shopping and heavy materials. Especially its so useful if we have an elderly person in our home – with car no need to worry about calling a taxi or catching a bus.

Also, large vehicles such as minivans or SUV’s have enough room to seat approximately 6 or 8 passengers. Therefore, traveling with a large group of friends or an extended family will no longer be a problem. Additionally, this can even lower our transportation costs on renting vehicles or using public transportation.

Additionally, vehicles are tested for safety on roads. Therefore, if we are a safety-conscious buyer, we can always take a look at the crash-test safety ratings to learn more about the safety of the vehicle we purchase.

By investing today in one car wisely we can take advantage of convenience, safety, and cost-efficient traveling.

after all…

A dream without ambition is like a car without gas… you’re not going anywhere.

The measure of a country’s prosperity should not be how many poor people drive cars, but how many affluent people use public transportation !

Take care of your car in the garage, and the car will take care of you on the road … People are emotional about engines, if you hurt their car, you hurt their heart …  They love often to say: It’s not just a car, It’s someone else’s dream …. or, It’s not just four wheels – It’s home!

What does a car mean to you dear LLET friend?

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for !

Sometimes we might feel like we’re stuck in a rut in our daily life or we’re yearning for something exciting and different or maybe we’re craving new experiences and new challenges – travel is the ideal place to test ourself. It pushes people to their limits and gets them outside their comfort zone.

We can discover how resourceful we are when we’re exposed to new places, people and experiences. We’ll feel pride when we finish our trip successfully. Overcoming challenges will bring us joy and energy for future tests. We’ll realize how capable we are and build our confidence.

Learning is for sure also a strong reason why people love to travel.  They all want to experience something unfamiliar and leave with new skills or knowledge. Seeing the world is sometimes more educational than a high school or college class. It can cover subjects like history, geography and sociology.

Every destination has something unique to teach visitors, and immersing themselves in a completely different world is the best learning experience. People may travel to learn something specific: a new language, a new cuisine, aspects of a different culture, or a deeper appreciation of faith or spirituality. As a bonus, they’ll take away more than their specific goal. They’ll discover totally different ways of doing things. They’ll also gain awareness of new customs, cultures, people and places.

Travel helps open our mind. We realize that there’s no one way to live life. Meeting people from other places will show us that our world view isn’t the same as everyone else’s. We can’t imagine how different life is in another place until we see for ourself. Everything from work to family to beliefs to interests is not what we might expect from our own experience. The different setting will also help us discover and consider fresh ideas we hadn’t thought of before. We’ll come home with different notions and possibilities.

Traveling is one of the best ways to learn more about ourself. Every day traveling brings a new set of issues and opportunities. The way we handle those also gives us insight into who we are. We’ll start knowing ourself better and with a fresh perspective on what we want out of life. The experience will change our life. Also, when we’re mired in our daily life, it’s easy to lose sight of what we have. Our eyes aren’t open to what’s really special about our home. Exploring another place will give us a fresh appreciation for our hometown, country and “real life.” We’ll feel lucky to live where we do. Maybe we’ll see that there really is no place like home.

More than anything else travel is an ideal opportunity for families to connect with each other – it’s building and strengthening any kind of relationships. The shared experience of travel brings people together. A family getaway, a romantic trip, or long weekend with the girls or guys can strengthen important bonds. 

Couples, too, need to bond with each other away from home and work demands. Sharing travel experiences can ignite fresh sparks that last long after the couple returns home.

After all, travel is a special way to deepen friendships as well. With co-workers or with our high school gang, travel will remind us why we  became friends with them in the first place, and how good it is to spend focused time together. But it’s a great opportunity to make new friends – either fellow travelers or locals. Meeting and befriending new people is a valuable travel benefit. And once we’ve bonded, new possibilities for future travel unfold – either to visit them or journey with them. A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles!

There are many other reasons why travel is important. For example, a trip is the perfect time to do something different and exciting, especially something we can’t do at home. The thrill starts the minute we land in a new place. Also travel can be a great relief from the stress. Travel is particularly helpful for workaholics who have trouble leaving their job behind. Stepping away from the workplace is good for us both mentally and physically. When we return to the job, we’ll have had the space to look at issues with fresh eyes.

Travel has the power to heal. A relaxing setting and good weather are common ingredients for a trip focused on relaxation. A restful vacation is just what we all need to renew ourself. Just relax and be present in the moment. Let sensations like the lapping water and the warmth of the sun, along with the sound of waves, recharge batteries. Travel helps our mind and body reboot in a way we can’t achieve at home.

after all…

Once a year dear LLET friend, go someplace you’ve never been before … Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do … Always remember that investment in travel is an investment in yourself !!!

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow !





Welcome to LLET World of Knowledge – our World of Happiness and Joy dear friend !

Knowledge is our fuel, every information is one new step to success, every advice is new station, every lesson is one new destination… We can go far together and visit many places in world of knowledge – are you ready?


A huge percentage of what we know came from watching and listening to our parents, experimenting with and testing out new ideas or skills on friends, family, colleagues, and strangers, taking risks and failing or succeeding in front of others, gauging reactions, adjusting and adapting.

All of this is part of the process of lifelong learning, and it is – and always has been highly social – even before blogs, Twitter and Facebook.


Learning sparks social engagement – we often connect with others because we want to learn from them and with them. Let’s then enjoy and learn together, I’m so glad that You are here dear friend – Welcome to one new journey and wonderful adventure…
