About Me

Hello and welcome!

I'm Rachel and I love to travel (frugally). I also love to DIY and do my nails and other girly things so I share bits and bobs of that on this blog too. I'm a civil engineer for a construction company and as much as I love math and building cool things, I think I love holidaying much more.
My most favourite teacher was my fifth grade teacher, Mr. Williams, who is British. I'd never met a Brit in real life before; I had just seen them on television. And even though I'd always been fascinated by the accent, hearing it in real life made me fall in love with it even more. So ever since the 5th grade, I've been a bit of an Anglophile and it was a long-time wish to visit London someday. In 2008, I went to London for the first time and I've been back several times since then and through my various trips, I've gotten to be somewhat of an expert cheap traveler.

I don't have a huge budget and my job gives me a limited number of vacation days but I'm lucky enough to live just 30 miles outside of New York City, which means I have three major airports at my disposal. So, whenever I stumble across amazing (re: affordable) flight deals, I pounce on them. I try and document most of those trips here, from the brainstorming to the organizing to the actual trip.

I'm currently using a Sony NEX 5T compact system camera to take photos for my blog. Older photos were taken with my iPhone (which is actually a pretty decent camera).

Bon voyage and happy travels! If you'd like to send me an email, you can reach me at racheerachh [at] gmail.com (I've broken up the link to prevent any robotic spamming).

P.S. I also love food and have a blog devoted to eating.
