Summer Travel 2017

Over the summer, Matty and I traveled to a number of places including: Romania, Macedonia, Kenya, Malta, and Greece. I hope that my travels inspire others to explore the world. With all the “bad” the media exposes us too, I think it is important to see the beauty. Travel broadens my mind. I get to share new experiences with others. I get to see how the people of the world live. To see the similarity and the differences of the culture that I was born in. The logistics is always an experience. Where do you get money? What is the...

Friends & Family Come to Italy

Matty and I invited our friends and family to come to Italy. We rented the villa and transportation and I planned out the activities. We had 17 people total over 16 days in 4 places. First we were in Venice where we toured the canals. We then went to Tuscany where we learned to cook Italian food, rode Vespas, visited Cinque Terre, Leaning tower, Florence and went swimming. Next stop was Rome where the temperatures reached 106. We toured around the city and celebrated birthdays. After Rome, we spent 3 nights sailing around Capri. Then we spent...

Flight to/from Bangkok $82- Travel Hacking

Recently I have been getting questions about travel hacking so I thought I would give an example of flights I booked. I am headed to SE Asia in the fall and booked a tickets from the US to Bangkok-United, then Bangkok back to London-American Airlines (where I will be living). The total of these flights were $81.80. Yes, you read that right!!! Again, the total is $81.80 but here is the proof: So how do I do it. First, it starts with opening credit cards and being responsible. Credit card companies offer flight/hotel bonuses. Example: United...

Biking the Danube, Passau to Linz

Biking the Danube, Passau to Linz

Matty and I took a bike ride from Passau, Germany to Linz Austria. It took us a full day to do. As you can see from the pics below, it wasn’t an easy task for a couple that hadn’t been riding recently. Matty needed a few breaks in the fetal position and my butt is still chapped 2 weeks later. Would we do it again? Absolutely. The towns we went through were amazing. We stumbled across a wine festival in Linz. The views we perfect. The weather was great. I don’t think we could have asked for more for the weekend. We had plans...

Cheb & Pilsen, Czech

Cheb & Pilsen, Czech

As many of you know, we are spending a short time in Czech Republic before moving to Italy. We spent some time exploring the local areas which includes the city of Cheb and Pilsen (think beer). The best beef rib I have EVER had was at Purkmistr. This place also brews their own unfiltered and unpasteurized beer. This gives the beer a slightly cloudy look. The dark (black) beer was a treat but like most dark beers, a small amount was perfect. However, they had a brown beer that was so much goodness and much easier to drink. The Czech is an...

Save Money on Rental Cars

Save Money on Rental Cars

I wrote yesterday about stopovers and hotel points and that was a hit, so today I wanted to share how I save money on rental cars. Matt and I are headed to South Africa in May. So last night I was searching for a SUV to rent for the month (29 days). When I was doing my search, like I always do, I played with the dates. Did you know a 32 day rental can be cheaper than a 29 day rental by almost $400???? Proof is seen below. All I did was change the date to PAST when we need the car and the rate dropped significantly. Avis doesn’t care if...
