I'm willing to bet that you adore traveling or at least the idea of traveling.

The prospect of traveling excites you; it encourages you to work hard and save money.

You want to travel anywhere and everywhere, experience other cultures, and find adventure--whatever that may mean to you.

If you're like most people, you shudder at the thought of how much travel costs and logistics of planning the trips.

If you're anything like me, you probably feel overwhelmed more often than not, and perhaps you feel as though your dreams are just a little too big.


Stop right there, friend.

Your dreams are not too big!

I believe that you can do whatever you want in life! It's merely a question of how hard you're willing to work for it.

It's okay to have big dreams and goals that scare you a little bit. Whatever you do, don't let your fear of failure stop you from trying.

Besides, I've got some good news for you: what if I told you that you can travel on a tight budget and it doesn't have to be stressful or uncomfortable?! Would you believe me? I can already see you shaking your head.

But, I'm telling the truth!

This blog is a resource for people who are ready to create a budget, work hard, travel the world, and seek out adventure--whatever that may mean to you.

Yeah, it sounds like work.

And guess what? It is work!

But don't worry; I've got your back!

My goal is to provide you with awesome, budget-friendly travel destination guides and tons of tips to help you save money during your travels!

If you have been bitten by the travel bug (don't worry, you're in good company) but feel restricted by your budget and knowledge about travel, you'll love it here at Roads We Wander! Here, I believe that knowledge can be easily gained and that budgets don't have to hinder our travels!

I know that "budgets don't have to hinder our travels" sounds a little absurd, so, allow me clarify: budgets are an important part of most people's lives. Spending money that you don't have can be detrimental to your financial well-being. I don't recommend overspending in order to afford luxury travel. Instead, I encourage you to save money where you can in your daily life and budget out your vacations in a smartest way possible.

When it comes to budget travel, you may think...

  • Budget traveling means you'll be sleeping on the street or in nasty hostels.
  • You must live out of a backpack.
  • You can't visit your dream destination on a budget.
  • It's for more adventurous people.
  • People with full-time jobs don't have time for it.
  • Etc.

But, here's the truth about budget travel...

  • You can be comfortable.
  • You can travel anywhere you'd like on a budget.
  • You can stay in nice places.
  • You can eat out often.
  • You can bring a suitcase.
  • It doesn't take a particularly adventurous person, just one willing to say "YES!"
  • It's incredibly rewarding!

In addition to tips for traveling on a budget, I will be providing you destination ideas, destination guides, and so much more!

I'm Going to Help You Become a Budget Travel Rock Star!

In case you were wondering who has been passionately telling you not to give up on your dreams to travel the world, I'll take a moment to introduce myself.

My name is Jennifer. I am totally in love with traveling! (Could you even tell?)

I believe in living and learning.

My blog posts discuss tips and tricks that I've learned from first-hand experience and quality information I've gathered from reliable sources.

I don't make crap up, and I definitely don't just tell you what you want to  hear.

I'm honest and realistic.

I know that I don't know everything.

I'm learning new things about budget travel every day!

Who I Am

I am a Floridian with a big heart, big dreams, and a small budget. Like, really small.

I have some core beliefs that you should know:

  • I believe that experiences (both positive and negative) enrich life.
  • I believe that comfort zones are meant to be expanded.
  • I believe that happiness is a state of mind not a state of being.

I am more than just a traveler; I love spending time with my friends; I enjoy writing and telling stories; And, I adore Giraffes and French Bulldogs--I mean, who doesn't, right?!
