I started this travel blog to be a place where I combine my love of travel and exploring lesser known locations with my passion for writing. I am a travel junkie, always searching for the hidden gems and lesser known facts that expose the heart and soul of a place. I also use many different accommodation options while traveling. From sleeping in a tent or travel trailer, hotels, hostels, secluded dry cabins or sharing a private house, I have experienced them all. I have even slept in a sleeping bag on a picnic table at a rest area in the middle of “no-where” Wyoming.
I like to save as much money while traveling too so I take advantage of as many travel deals and perks as possible, many of which I share with my readers. The majority of the links you see advertised on my blog are for a product or company I have used personally and recommend.
You will also see the tab for Space-A travel, that is because my husband is retired military and we are eligible to use this form of travel free of charge, some restrictions apply, to travel around the globe. For example, we hopped on a KC-135 Stratotanker out of Lincoln, Nebraska heading to Honolulu, Hawaii in May 2013 because the crew needed flight time. We spent eight hours riding the city bus and walking around Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Waikiki. The entire trip took us 22 hours and we spent a total of $30. When it started getting dark we headed to the USO back on Pearl Harbor that was open 24 hours and waited for our flight. We slept on the plane back to Lincoln. This kind of a spur of the moment trip may not be for everyone, but it worked for us and we are always up for a unique adventure.
