Keep It Local | Eugene

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again. You can try, try, try to make me a Ducks fan, but it’ll never happen. One thing you can do is make me a Eugene fan, though.  It’s probably one of my favorite cities in Oregon. I’m not much of a city girl, so that’s saying…

Keep It Local | Willamette Valley

It happened. We embarked upon our yearly 9 day road trip. How’d it go? It was magnificent! Last year we traversed the Western United States, beginning in Phoenix & ending in Spokane. We went to so many National Parks, we should have bought an Annual Pass – hind sight is 20/20…. This year we went coastal…

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…

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…
