Hi there! If you’re anything like me you have a full time job (or a full course load) but a burning desire to travel. You dream about destinations, browse travel pins on Pinterest and are always looking forward to your next trip. And if you’re really like me you have a limited number of vacation days every year. I have 12 paid days off to be exact – eek!

I caught the travel bug 9 years ago right as I was graduating from college and thus have always had to figure out how to squeeze trips into the limited time I had available while working a full time job.

The good news? It was way more do-able than I ever imagined! My hope is that this blog inspires you to take more trips and maximize those vacation days. I also want this blog to be filled with all the information I wished I could find online before one of my trips. I want to compile all the useful tidbits into one place so that you don’t have to.

So tell me – how can I help you? What travel advice, destination tips, or info in general are YOU looking for?




A little bit about me…

I’m a twenty-something coffee addict working full time as a software engineer for an airline (yes, that means flight benefits!). I live in sunny Phoenix, AZ and in my unbiased opinion I think that Arizona is one of the most beautiful states in the US.
I believe in squeezing travel in whenever possible and always packing light!
