Tippe’s Travels

I’m a City Planner by day and a World Traveler by night and weekend.
I travel hundreds of thousands of miles a year while working a full-time office job, and I am excited to share my tips, tricks, and stories with anyone who wants to listen.

After I finished grad school in 2012, I had a little bit of time and a little bit of money, and I seized the opportunity to travel as much as I could. And after finding a handful of amazing travel blogs and forums, I started to become good at finding cheap ways to travel. When I started working full-time, I was fortunate to have three day weekends with Fridays off, so I took advantage of that and have not looked back ever since then.


At work, people started asking me, “So where did you go this weekend?” I just couldn’t stop. At the very least, I wasn’t missing much work. I love adding on a day off to a long weekend here and there to go places like Japan, India, Colombia, or Hawaii. It got to the point where on the off chance that I actually had no travel plans when someone asked where my next trip was, if they asked me again in a few days, I would invariably say, “Actually, yeah, there was a deal and I booked just one more trip….”

Travel is so much a part of who I am! I don’t have the option to work remotely, and working for a municipal government doesn’t afford me a huge income to travel like I would love to. So instead of choosing not to travel because the conditions are not ideal, I choose to travel whenever and however I can. It has kept me sane when wanderlust strikes, as it so often does, while I am working long hours in my office with a view of the parking lot.

Travel is not an unattainable goal. While I don’t prefer to binge travel like I do, it is the next best thing, and I don’t have to quit my job in order to do it. All it takes is a little dedication to researching and following through on some unconventional ways to plan a trip, and off you go!


I have visited 38 countries and 33 states.

With my current travel plans, I will have visited 44 countries and hopefully more states by the end of this year.

“Once you travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”
Pat Conroy
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain
