Last Friday – armed with ‘buddy passes” from our airline friends, a small bag and our mobile office (a backpack) – we showed up at the airport and decided to go to, um, anywhere. Every traveler’s fantasy.
We’re back from Vegas, resuming a slower paced, blur-free life.
Here it is, the end of January, and we’re feeling way behind in our efforts to get our travel mapped out for 2012. We’re just starting to make progress brainstorming the outline of possible itineraries. One thing looks fairly certain. No Europe.
I’m sharing 10 tips that I’ve collected over the years to help you save on flights. Now I am no travel expert when it comes to the best travel secrets out there. However, I’ve been blogging for a few years, believe it or not, and I’ve read a lot of articles on travel and listened to hundreds of suggestions and I’ve come to learn one thing. What I am good at is organizing those suggestions and tips from other travel experts.
…we struggle with the whole idea of off the beaten path travel. Isn’t there the opportunity for something “new” where ever you are? Can’t something seemingly ordinary end up being momentous? Any experience – travel related or otherwise – is what you make it. That’s the conclusion we came to at least.
For Canada’s Adventure Couple, Dave and Deb, travel is their full-time gig. As most of us would say, “they’re living the dream.” Which is true, they really are. The couple, who both used to work in the film industry, became inspired by travel during their trip to Thailand back in 2000. From then on, travel defined them more than their careers, and they searched for ways to turn their passion into a lifestyle. Since their first trip to Thailand, they have climbed, paddled, hiked and biked their way through 5 continents doing everything from cycling across Africa, to driving across Mongolia. Not to mention, their adventure travel blog is on top of the charts, and I can truly say the couple inspire me each and every day.
