Hi, I’m Debbie. A fifty something mom of 4 and grandma of 5. As you can imagine, home life can get pretty busy. Over the last 10 years, my husband and I have started traveling quite often. So often in fact that our friends and co-workers joke that we are never home. That is not quite true since we both manage to maintain our businesses and the kids all still recognize us but, through planning, rewards programs, our time share property and our vacation club we are able to travel at least once a month and often more without breaking the bank. Sometimes we even bring them along. We have enjoyed so many wonderful experiences in our travels.

We love music, food, beaches and cities. Some of our travels follow a theme. One year we took over 10 trips to see various music acts around the country. The past few years we have taken at least one trip to locations of childhood homes. We both moved a lot growing up so we had lots of choices. We always try the local cuisine when we travel and love to both cook and eat on vacation. It is tough not to love being on a beach but we also enjoy going to different cities and checking out the history and architecture.

We are equal opportunity travelers, any trip, any time. This blog is designed to share our experiences with you but also to show you how our participation in loyalty and reward programs helps us stretch our dollars. We are also members of the Hilton Grand Vacation Club and love it. Many of their properties are featured in our posts. A great vacation without planning is as rare as a winning lotto ticket. Most take planning and preparation. It is our hope that this blog will inspire you to exciting escapes and help you do the planning to make those escapes affordable and enjoyable.

We’d love to keep in touch with you. If you’d like more information about one of our trips or just want to say “Hi” just fill out the contact form below. You can also follow us on one of our social media platforms and subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!
