Hi there.  I’m Kim!  My husband, Paul, and I have been vacationing all over the globe for many years.  Every trip we try to find some new adventure to tackle on a budget.  On our travels, we have made mistakes, made friends, got ripped off and got lost.  We also shared lots of stories and experiences with other fellow travelers and locals alike.

We haven’t done it all yet, but we have learned so many lessons with planning travel on our own.  It’s not easy and it takes some good old-fashioned research, but it’s truly worth it if you want to personally stylize your itinerary.  My goal here is to provide you with some of those lessons we learned to save you time and money on your next adventure.
