Who are we?

We are Claire and Terry Archer, two elementary school teachers and avid travellers from Ontario, Canada.  Unlike many other travel bloggers, we have full-time careers at home.  We share our experience at maintaining full-time jobs while also seeing the world.

While we try to save money wherever possible, we also are not willing to miss amazing experiences, or be miserable, to keep to a budget.

  • We use public transportation, but will rent a car when it makes sense.
  • We will stay in a hostel to save a few dollars, but rent apartments on longer stays for comfort and space.
  • We will skip a museum with a high entry fee, but happily spend $100 on an amazing experience.
  • We try to find off-the-beaten-path destinations, but still visit those must-see tourist spots.

This means that our audience is willing to spend a few more dollars for comfort and enjoyment.  They are not young backpackers on a low budget but more often professionals with a love of travel and a sense of adventure.

 

Why work with us?

As a brand new blog, you will get excellent value.  Our fees are extremely competitive and yet, as we grow, so too will your audience reach.  Page views are increasing at approximately 150% each month and we are working hard on increasing this further.

In addition to social engagement, we regularly receive emails and private messages from our readers asking for additional advice in planning a specific trip, or thanking us for providing helpful information.

We are currently traveling full-time through Central America, South America and Europe, as well as having lived in Mexico and Trinidad.  There is a lot of content still to come and we are working full-time to improve and grow.  Our social media following is also growing quickly and you can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
