I don’t just love to travel, I love to plan the trip – do the research, make the reservations, everything. I want to get a good deal. And when I actually get somewhere that is a real gem, I feel like I’ve scored a win!
While I’m willing to stay in chain hotels and eat at chain restaurants (especially if I can use “points” or am in a hurry), I prefer to find a deal that is closer to the local culture and economy. I used to say that I draw the line at staying in accommodations with rodents, but that line has been crossed and I didn’t mind because the beach and experience outweighed a few silly mice!
After 25 years of amateur travel, my friends and family ask me how I plan these trips and travel so much. So, I decided to start a blog to share my approach and my experiences. I hope I can inspire you to see more of the world in your own way.
