When it comes to travel, there are all kinds of obstacles in life that often stop us from traveling. These obstacles can be different for different people.
When I was 15, I went to a family reunion in Vancouver, Canada. Nobody in my family is actually from Vancouver, or even from Canada, but since we’re a traveling family, we collectively decided that it would be nice to go on a little trip and visit each other at the same time. As I prepare for my triumphant return to Canada’s beautiful city on the Pacific, I find myself recalling a lot of memories from that time.
As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I work full time. I’m also about as obsessed with travel as one can be, and take any and every opportunity to go on adventures. I’m not particularly wealthy, so in many ways I’m probably similar to many of you. I would like to share with you a few tips that I use to fund my travels.
If you travel for business, you have a wonderful opportunity to get out there and see a bit of the world! Often times, business trips are quite quick and travelers don’t really have enough time to really experience their destination, but with a few little changes, you can turn it into a mini-getaway with minimal vacation time.

I have the distinct privilege of living and working close enough to this awesome spot that I can enjoy it any day, and I want to share that awesomeness with you!
When I travel to a new destination, I just can’t wait to discover what that destination has to offer in terms of culinary delights. Each city has their own unique offerings that aren’t available anywhere else. Each country has their national specialties and regional dishes. For me, one of the best parts of travel is diving in and sampling all the delicious things my destination has to offer.
So, you’re going to visit Hawaii? I’m excited for you! Hawaii is a lovely place that I really just can’t get enough of. Living on the U.S. West Coast, Hawaii is actually a very affordable travel destination for me. As a result I’ve been there many times, and I plan on going there many more times in the future. Wherever you call home, however, a trip to Hawaii is a wonderful thing. To help you get prepared, I’ve decided to tackle that question of the ages: What to pack?
If you’ve never been on a long-haul flight, I can tell you with authority that they are quite brutal. There’s really nothing quite like spending 10+ hours in the air, nonstop to drain you of all energy and make you forget that there was ever a time in your life when you weren’t tired and smelly from wearing the same clothes for far too long.
