Travel Less Expensively Without Sacrificing Luxury or Comfort

Don't Travel Cheap, Travel Smart and Save Money

cheap travel tipsI read a lot on traveling "cheap".  If you are like me, you are NOT going to:

  • Sleep in a hostel or a stranger's couch.
  • Ride in a bumpy bus over 11 hours through rough terrain to save $10.
  • Be herded into a cheap, budget, no-frills airline.
  • Wait in line for 4 hours to get into a museum for free.

These are the kinds of "tips" I get delivered into my mailbox all day.    Take a look at my blog post to see how to travel less expensively, without sacrificing luxury or comfort.

6 Tips for Visiting Venice

tips for visiting VeniceTo me, Venice is the most unique city in the world. It floats in the sea. The canals weave in and out of the city full of gondoliers, water taxis, and vaporetto.  It's definitely not a Roman city, but a mix of East and West.
