The “Tips & Tricks” section of Travel Part Time isn’t about your typical “packing strategies” or “the best shoes to wear to the airport” – it’s about saving money, first & foremost. I’m not rich. If you read My Story, you’ll know I’m pretty average. I work full-time & have an insatiable wanderlust that I will…

Keep It Local | Salida & Buena Vista

Oh Colorado, I would live in you like a kangaroo pup (is that a thing?) (did that sound sexual?).  I still think I’d choose Montana over Colorado, but only for the seclusion & who knows how long I would last…. Colorado is just, I don’t know. There’s something about being able to drive 2 hours…

Keep It Local | Plano & Frisco

When you’re invited to a sporting clay shoot near Dallas, you never say no.  I pretty much just never say no to getting to shoot one of my guns.  No, I don’t go kill animals, though I wouldn’t say no to a good hunt if I was invited – to each their own.  Sorry, sometimes…

Planning A Road Trip

Each year, we embark on a road trip.  By making the most of our vacation time, we can usually traverse some part of the US in 9 days without having to use more than 3-4 days of vacation. Last year we took off from Phoenix & ended in Spokane, Washington.  This year we plan to…

Keep It Local | Sedona

Here is my typical preamble: If you are unaware – B of the Nomadic Newlyweds & I have set off on a month full of Girl’s Getaways (4 States in 4 Weeks).  I’m a huge believer in living like a local, but it’s not for the reasons you’d think.  It’s not because I have some…

Keep It Local | San Antonio

Let’s start with a precursor here, if you are unaware – B of the Nomadic Newlyweds & I have set off on a month full of Girl’s Getaways (4 States in 4 Weeks).  I’m a huge believer in living like a local, but it’s not for the reasons you’d think.  It’s not because I have…

Keep It Local

You can read about how I hit 4 States in 4 Weeks. One thing I didn’t mention in that article – My goals for travel.  I’m not big on taking the “tourist” route around the city, though I am a tourist.  It’s important to me, to experience each place as if it were a highlight…

4 States in 4 Weeks

The month of April has afforded B (of Nomadic Newlyweds) & I the opportunity to travel cross country, Girl’s Getaway style.  As I write this, we are in the midst of this fantastic journey full of wanderlust & adventure.  I’m sticking to my mantra of working full time while traveling part time, don’t you worry.  This month…

The Southwest Companion Pass

So, let’s talk…there’s this thing & it’s the most amazing thing of all things I’ve ever encountered (this may or may not be an exaggeration, I’m unsure as of this moment).  The thing I’m talking about is the Southwest Companion Pass.  Don’t know what that is? Allow me to educate you: The Southwest Companion Pass…

Making The Most Of Your Vacation Time

Being a procrastinator when it comes to planning out your vacations may mean you’re more spontaneous, but it doesn’t mean you’ve made the most of that precious vacation time.  I’m not saying you didn’t make the most of your vacation or enjoy the time you spent on it. What I am saying is you may…
