Hi, I’m Sierra- a world traveler who loves coffee, dogs, the outdoors, and spur of the moment adventures. If you are looking for travel inspiration, destinations to visit, itineraries, or tips to save money on your next vacation, then you came to the right place!

Like most people I work a full-time job, so as much as I want to be, I am not a full-time traveler. Although I do not have the funds to be a “luxury traveler” I enjoy traveling like I am one. When I explore new places, it is always on a budget. I try to get the most for my money everywhere I go while still staying at 4-5 star lodging accommodations. This often leads to questions such as, How can you afford to travel so often? How do you decide where to go? How do you know the top places to visit? Can you send me your itinerary?

With so many family and friends asking these questions and me wanting to help, I decided to document and capture my adventures to share with all of you! I discovered the only way to do this without hiring a travel agent is to research. Once I have a destination in mind I will spend hours upon end creating spreadsheets, reading reviews, and researching. There are so many questions and decisions to make when planning a trip it is important to consider the following:

  • Best places to visit
  • Top attractions and things to do in that area
  • Should we stay in a vacation rental, hotel, or all-inclusive resort
  • Safest place to stay
  • Places to avoid that are overrated
  • Secret gems off the beaten path
  • Best restaurants
  • Top beaches and snorkel spots
  • Highly ranked excursions that don’t cost an arm and a leg
  • How to save money while I’m there
  • Closest gas stations and grocery stores
  • Transportation
  • And anything else you can think of before you go on vacation

The list goes on and on… I know planning a trip can be incredibly time consuming and stressful but don’t worry, I’ve made is easy for you! I have provided resources, recommendations, and tips to make your trip both unforgettable and budget-friendly. Get started today by checking out these Destinations. Your adventure awaits!
