Welcome to Travel TMI!
My name is Jared. I am married to my awesome wife Brynne and we have 3 children together. We love to travel and go on vacations. We are really big fans of the mini vacations which a lot of people like to call the local or stay cations. I am having a hard time keeping up with all this terminology but I think you get my point with what I am saying here.
I’ll be honest you, we are pinching our pennies every month and trying to find ways to save a couple extra dollars here and there. We want to do fun stuff with our family and create awesome memories for our kids. But a lot of times we are limited by our budget. So we have to get creative.
What is so awesome is that the more creative we get usually the more fun we end up having. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to rent a $5,000 or $10,000 a day yacht in the Caribbean for two weeks but that is not in our deck of cards right now so we have to get creative and make every dollar count.
We also have family that live all over the country so a lot of our traveling has to do with going to go see family that live in a different state. We currently live on the West Coast which is where Brynne’s family lives but all of my family is in the upper Mid West. So we have done car trips and a lot of plane rides across the United States with our family. We are used to traveling with a large crowd. We know our way around an airport which means we know what to do with strollers and where all the play structures are at airports. We are also very savvy when it comes to entertaining our kids when they get bored.
