I remember being about 8 years old and sitting in the jumpseat of a Boeing 767 (back in the days when that was allowed), flying with my parents to Alaska. I remember pressing my nose against the tiny oval window and seeing the Northern Lights dance across the sky and realizing how much bigger than me this world is. It’s a feeling that never changes. And, well, you try growing up with a flight attendant mom, a dad who lived in Sicily and is a hobbyist pilot and an aunt who’s been to all 7 continents and NOT be fascinated with the world.
So now here I am, a twentysomething career girl with an obsessive love of travel.
But I also have a day job…one that keeps me out of the house 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. I get vacation during the year, which is great, but certainly not enough to do all the travel I’d like to. Unlike many who I greatly admire, I do not have the time, resources or the guts to give up everything and get out on the road. Many of you are in the same boat – itching to see the world but trapped in a cubicle and a business suit. Well I’m here to tell you it can be done – luxuriously OR on a budget, without giving up your job.
This blog is for you – the working professional who’s desperately seeking ways to squeeze adventure and insight into their life; you, with a mildly expendable income that will allow for some luxury and some fun on the road. Whether its 2 weeks in an exotic locale, the local sights or a weekend getaway, there’s adventure to be found. Follow me, along with my friends and family, as we find ways to see the globe without giving up on our careers.
I’ll throw in a little sarcastic insight, too.
Friend me on TBEX!

I can be cynical…don’t ruin my fun : ) I spent quite some time working for a hotel chain, hence the interest in lodging quality. Everyone has a different experience when they stay somewhere, but I stand by my reviews! (which are, btw, solely my opinion; any info provided on the hotel is pertinent up to the date of my stay. Please check the hotel’s websites, which are provided, for property specifics.)
