After over a decade of travelling the world together, we've learned (sometimes the hard way) how to get the most bang for our buck out of our trips. That doesn't just mean cutting corners in every way possible, so your vacation doesn't feel like a vacation, to us it means making a realistic budget of what we want to do, and how to do it.

We're going to teach you how we've both travelled the world, lived likes kings, and done it all on a modest budget. These 10 travel hacks will have you planning your next vacation by tomorrow, and will keep your money in your pocket.

Bed And Breakfast


Denmark and Portugal are both wonderful places to visit, but in one of these countries, you'll be able to live like a king, on peanuts, and the other, you won't.

Exchange Rate Benefits

Exchange Rate Benefits In Action

Obviously sometimes it's nice to be right in the heart of the touristy things, because that's why it's the most beautiful, but remember, you're also going to pay way more for hotels, and way more for food.

Tourist Trap Aversion In Action

Going to China is cool, but I guarantee you that there are 10 amazing vacations spots, that you have no ideas existed, within a 10 hour drive of where you live. EX: Ontario/Quebec. Tobermory, Finger Lakes, Maine, etc...

Further Isn't Always Better

Further Isn't Always Better In Action

Paid Excursions aren't always better. Don't get stuck in the trap of having to do all of the paid tourist things. Most places you will travel will have tons of free things to do and see, that are tons of fun.

Get To Know The Locals

When you say you're going to Holland, and your mother pipes up and says, "my distant cousin lives there, and would love see you", It's actually true. The truth is, we often feel like we are stepping on peoples toes, but we've done that almost 10 times, and every time, it's been enriching for both parties"

Professional Drummer & Record Producer

Hi, I'm Mark, and I get to live my dreams out every day. As a drummer for 14 years, and a Record Producer for 9 years, I've had the pleasure of working in the studio, and playing live with some very talented, award winning artists, from Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, etc...

Over the years, I've had to learn the "do's and do nots" of recording, producing, and drumming, the hard way... By first, learning the "do nots." My goal in teaching these courses is to allow you to skip learning the "what not to do" and jump right into doing things the right way, right away.

Hey! I'm Jillian. Although I live in a small town outside of Toronto, I am constantly on the move, exploring the world to make sure that I never settle into the box of a 9-5 job.

Between trips, I work with special need's children in a school, sew and sell on Etsy, and continue to learn the best way to grow veggies in my ever-expanding garden.
