In April last year, G and I spent 8 days in Hawaii for $2995.31 – all in. Oh did I mention that’s 2995.31 CANADIAN dollars – So more like $2000.00 (at the time) American? I love love love making travel happen cheap. For me, a big part of living with intention is taking the time to enjoy life, but also being aware that I can’t blow all our savings on one trip. This is where the budget holiday comes in!
Until two years ago, I had never run a mile in my life. I consider myself pre-disposed to athletic aversion. I really prefer drinking wine and surfing pinterest. With chocolate. There might have been times I was supposed to run, like in school, but I used to hide in this big doorway until the end of class and then coming “running” out as though I had been at it the whole time. Seriously. I have no idea how I got away with it.
Travel Hacking is becoming such a popular phrase. Especially in the budget travel world. I get it – I mean, who doesn’t want to travel for FREE? And possibly travel in style for free?
On the off chance that it’s a new to you phrase, Travel Hacking is the (refined) art of using credit card rewards and membership point programs to travel for FREE. It is legal. It works. It can be complicated.
