Fraser Island: Australia’s Nature at it’s Finest

When I look back and think about my adventure down the East Coast of Australia my favorite part would have to be my trip to Fraser Island. I went on a 3 day and 2 night 4X4 and camping adventure that I surprisingly loved- especially considering how much I was out of my element.  Fraser […]

The Hidden Fees to “Low Cost” European Airlines

My Insight to Packing Light Without Sacrificing Style

So I have to admit that one of my worst travel habits, that I have successfully changed in the last few years, is over-packing.  I’m kind of a control freak and used to think I had to have everything I could potentially need during even the shortest vacations.  The last time I packed like this […]

Some Quick Budget Tips: Ballin’ on a Budget
