The Abundant Traveler Blog

When I create a travel video or a blog post, I try to put myself in the shoes of my readers and viewers. What would I want to know? What would help me have a better travel experience?

Any time I sit down to write a post or make a travel video for my Youtube channel, my goal is to make sure that you come away with a sense of the excitement and joy that traveling the world gives me each time I step out the door. And if I help you save a few bucks in the process, who’s complaining?

Abundant Travel Tips: Father’s Day Gifts & Hawaii

Wowza! Hawaii was amazing! I’m back from Hawaii, and WOW!, what an amazing place.  It’s hard to believe that I’ve been to more than 60 countries yet never visited Hawaii.  I had an absolute blast visiting all the hot spots in Maui and Oahu.  In Maui, I hit Mama’s Fish House, sunset at Haleakala, Upcountry and took the 600 plus turns to Hana.  There was so much to do in Maui, and I didn’t spend any time lounging at
