I have traveled to over 40 countries and all 7 continents in the past 20 years. My travel style ranges from budget to luxury to everything in between. My goal is to help you travel smarter- cheaper, safer and in more comfort – as well as provide you with travel inspiration and detailed guides and itineraries to help you plan your trips. I have tips and tricks on everything from packing, how to survive long flights, travel hacking and traveling on a budget. When not traveling, you will find me exploring my hometown of Chicago.
