Welcome!  I’m hoping to have a place to share some of the knowledge and travel tips I’ve accumulated over the years and across the globe with a focus on budget travel and planning your own adventures without relying on group tours or all inclusive resort packages.  You can follow me on Instagram at @wanderingsincedawn to get updates of when content is added. 

I am more of a flashpacker than backpacker as I enjoy budget travel and touring around, but I have a life at home that I love which prevents me from spending months at a time abroad. I’m hoping my site will show others who have commitments at home (job, mortgage, dog, or even children) that travel is possible to work into your life without having to make excuses to put it off.

If you have any suggestions or specific blogs you’d like to see, don’t hesitate to reach out to me by emailing wanderingsincedawn@gmail.com.

Safe travels!

All photos and opinions on this site are my own. If I recommend a particular place/brand/product or service, it is because of my own positive experience.

My boy Pierre, 11 year old rescue mutt, is one of the main reasons I keep returning home.
