about the blog

Welcome to my budget travel blog! 

I’m Maggie, nice to meet you!

This blog was born out of a simply phenomenal study abroad experience I had in my final semester of college. I spent four months in Prague, and almost every weekend in another country. It was bliss.

Once I graduated and found a job I loved, I started to miss traveling somewhere new every single weekend. Now that I was a full-time employee, it didn’t seem feasible for work or my bank account, but I wanted to try anyways.

I started planning my own vacations based on the little time and money I had and discovered that everything I did while studying abroad, I could apply to working while traveling.

Short on time? Check.

Low on funds? Check.

Anxious to see everything? Check.

Turns out, it is possible for us working folks to travel frequently without spending much. It just took a semester of trying to make my savings and my weekends last as long as possible to figure it out.

So this blog is all about the 9-to-5 budget traveler. I’m chronicling all of my adventures and giving you the highlight reel. So if you wanted to say, visit a place but are pressed for time due to those precious vacation days, I’ll give you the scoop, all on a budget.

Hope you find these posts helpful, happy travels!
