Heather and I decided to take advantage of our Southwest Companion Pass (the best companion pass there is) and travel around the United States.
For 2 months.
In today’s episode we take some of the travel advice we give for traveling abroad and apply it to our planning process for this trip. Many of you travel domestically and here are some great examples of how to save money while traveling right at home!

We live near the one on NE Alberta. I’ll ask around for places in July.
Come stay in Portland, we want to hang out with you guys! We live near a Salt & Straw…
@Megan- You live near Salt & Straw? Wow, that’s dangerous. Which one? And we will definitely be out there in July, regardless. Know of anyone who wants to sublet their apartment for a few weeks in July?
As an Austinite I’d actually recommend staying on the east side. Clarksville is cute, and will always have my heart since that’s where I grew up, but I think the east side is more interesting, especially for visiting.
@Tracy- Really? Any specific neighborhoods or areas you recommend? I had heard Clarksville from people, but am more than willing to change it up.
You guys shouldn’t miss Asheville while you’re in the Southeast! Breweries on breweries and happy hours galore. Love the episode – looking forward to your recs for Austin. Happy travels
@Kate Donnelly- Ahh…maybe we can try to squeeze Asheville in when we come back from Austin, mid-May? I’ve heard awesome things about it. If we do, what are your favorites? Thanks for the recs!
