Hello everyone!

As you may have deduced by the website name, I’m Gabe, and I love to travel.

I work for an airline, currently in Reservations and Training. I’ve been in the industry about eight years, for a few different airlines and in a few different roles. What started as just a job quickly turned into a career, and obsession, and a way of life.

It’s widely known that the best benefit of working for an airline happens to be the ability to hop on a plane and fly somewhere. In the last four years, I’ve taken full advantage of that, flying over half a million miles to 20 different countries. I average a trip somewhere every two weeks or so.

You can tell when I started working for an airline...

Being able to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice is great, but I still have to work. As a result, the vast majority of my trips are short. Whether domestic or international, I rarely average more than two days at a particular destination before heading home. What first seemed ridiculous has now become routine, and I’ve grown very used to the short trips and traveling affordably.

With that in mind, I wanted to start a blog that embraces that type of travel. I hope to post my trips here, as I love to take pictures and share my experiences with people. I also hope to incorporate advice on traveling on a budget, and making the most of short trips.

Ironically though, my first several posts here will be about my current trip, which is the exact opposite of a short trip.

You see, I’m currently about 1/3 of the way through a four month work assignment in the Philippines. When the opportunity came up earlier this year, I immediately jumped on it. Being able to live in a new country and learn about a new culture is a once in a lifetime experience.

Thus far it’s been an incredible experience and I can’t wait to share it with you.
