Traveling is one of my biggest hobbies and enjoyments in life. Whether I am traveling for work or for my own personal enjoyment, I’m always on the go and it seems that I’m usually away more than I am home. In fact, this year I’m currently finishing up two months in Japan and will be back again in a few weeks.
Photography is also one of the things that I really enjoy, so it also drives my desire to travel. If you want to read more about my passion for photography, you can read more in the Hobby section of the website. My photography has taken me all over the world so far. I spend equal amounts of time in cities, at beaches, and in the mountains.
I have been to many countries so far and have been all over the United States. In fact, the only state I have not been to is Alaska. I’ve also lived in 7 different states, so I have been able to experience almost every area of the US.
When I’m in the United States, I’m typically taking road trips visiting as many different places as I can.
From all of my traveling, I have really found what things work and what does not work. I carry different travel items with me depending on if I am staying in the United States or heading international.
On the coming pages I will write about my experiences with various products that I’ve traveled with. Some I really like, but others have been a complete waste of money. I will write about both of these so that you don’t have to lose your money on those products like I did.
It takes quite a lot for me to actually recommend a travel product, because I am quite picky. I’ll do my best to explain which points I am just being picky about and which ones have truly been inconveniences for me.
One of the other things I’ll be writing about is how to gain extra travel miles in order to get free travel! I usually have at least 1-2 free round trip plane tickets each year and countless free car rental days and hotel stays. I’ll explain how to get into travel hacking so that you can travel for free as well. The key is that you don’t need to actually travel to gain points!
The last big item I want to review is credit cards for traveling. There are so many to choose from that it can get pretty confusing. Some are great for specific airlines or hotels while others are perfect if you want to be free to make your travel arrangements anywhere.
Credit cards are one of the biggest ways to gain airline miles or travel points, so I hope to make this section as clear as possible. I’ll give you a quick insight into my life and admit that I currently have 5 credit cards. I use each of them for different reasons and to gain points in different ways depending on which credit card is currently running a deal. The points just pour in!
If you read any of the reviews and have questions, just reply to the post and I can respond as quickly as I can to help you out. Before long you should be able to get all the travel accessories that you need and also start booking some free vacations!
