Do You Dig the Way I Travel?

My travel style is to stay in a place for a while. There was a time in my life where I tried to run all over the world as fast as I could. I even tried to see all of Paris in two days. Say what? No longer. Now I get comfortable and I travel deeper.

I use Airbnb or TrustedHouseSitters to stay for a week or longer. It’s not about checking off a box for me. It’s about getting to know the people and the culture that make up the fabric of a destination.

The saying “travel like a local” is big these days, and I understand the draw. But I am not afraid to admit of being a tourist who enjoys a pint with the locals after a day of good, old-fashioned tourism and picture taking, with my tell-tale map revealed to the world.

I aim to be a low-impact, high-value traveler with a mid-range budget. I seek sustainable options wherever I go.

Enjoy the exploration!
