standard #F2BPHX: Chasing the Fare, Not the Destination


This past weekend I was in Phoenix, AZ staying at the lovely Phoenician Resort and Spa while I attended the First2Board Phoenix Sessions. I love the First2Board get togethers because they are on the smaller side, which really gives you a chance to meet everyone who is attending and learn some good tips and tricks. I […]

standard Sometimes Traveling Sucks… and That’s Okay


We’ve all had those moments where traveling sucks. Sometimes it’s because a flight is missed or we get stuck in a middle seat, sometimes we get lost when we don’t want to, sometimes we get sick from something we ate. Last night I had one of those ‘traveling sucks’ moments. My flight was delayed, which was […]

standard Point to Point Weekly: Euro Trip Planning & Relaxing in Thailand


The last couple days have been more relaxing than many of my days are. Don’t get me wrong though, I worked a bunch. You see, I got invited to tag along with some friends to Phuket, Thailand… but since one of my friends is also my business partner, traveling together always means a bit of work […]

standard #TBT Middle East 2013: Jet Lag Strikes in Dubai

A United attack fare lead to a trip to Bahrain, the UAE, and Kuwait. Definitely not a “normal” place for most Americans to vacation, but who ever said that I was normal? Luckily I have other friends that are into weird trips, so Aaron and I set off on this one… As this is a TBT […]

standard Point to Point Weekly: The Land of Terrible Wifi


Let’s just say that I probably got spoiled by the first two places I stayed in Myanmar… because they both had wifi, and the wifi wasn’t half bad. Well, fast forward to the night before my trekking trip from Kalaw to Inle Lake. The wifi in Kalaw wasn’t great, but it was usable. A few people […]

standard Sleeping in Airports, Cars, and on Couches #CanadaHopper

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 8.21.09 AM

My Canada Hopper was pretty awesome… but many of you, dear readers, probably would have hated it… or at least hated where I slept. Canada isn’t an overly cheap country to travel in, though with the exchange rate from the US Dollar, it is much better now than it has been for the past couple years. […]

standard Point to Point Weekly Double Edition: Canada Hopper, Weddings, and Myanmar

Whoops, last week got away from me… so this week is a double edition of the Point to Point Weekly. Two weeks ago I finished up my Canada Hopper. I visited Banff National Park for a couple of days and made a 1-day stop in Saskatoon on my way home. Banff was amazing. I absolutely could […]

standard Air Canada Standby Shenanigans


Well… yesterday was quite the interesting day of air travel for me. I flew out from Calgary early in the morning, with a full day layover in Saskatoon. Yeah, kind of a strange place to stop, but it was part of my Canada Hopper. So, since I had quite a bit of time, I obviously went […]

standard Confederation Trail Cycling Adventures – Prince Edward Island

Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 10.15.50 AM

The first stop on my Canada Hopper was Prince Edward Island. I didn’t know much about the island, and I unfortunately haven’t read any of the Anne of Green Gables books, so my starting point for what to do when I got there mainly consisted of get to the hostel and see how it goes. During the brief […]
