On the header is a pic from my last trip.  Guadeloupe, 2 islands up from Martinique. Found a Magic fare for $160 bux RT & had to go.  Had to drive 6 hrs. to get it. I said you need to be a bit flexible, but hey, I ended up on the beach in the French Antilles.  If you make the road trip part of the journey, see different things, dine at different places along the way it’s all good. I found the fare on Skyscanner.  I’ll walk through setting up the parameters on the app as soon as possible. I’ll post more pics & vids on Instagram & YouTube as soon as I can.




Discount Travel as it Should Be- Enjoyable!!


    There are those of us in whom lies an un-resting spirit of adventure, a lust to see all the things and drink in all the fragrances & romance of far away lands. To those who possess this spirit, it is summed up in the words of Jimmy Stewart, “The three most exciting sounds in the world are Anchor Chains, Airplane Engines and Train Whistles”. Amen.

Some never participate, with the cares & duties of life weighing them down, but this life is meant to be lived to the fullest.  It is a gift only given once. I pray you make the most of it, spicing life with the interactions of all you come in contact with, rich or poor, foreign or domestic. In the words of Herman Melville;

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off – then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”

This blog is intended to help you find that “Magic” fare that’s such a deal you can’t resist, one that takes you to the unknown lands, unmet characters, unexperienced romance, and the undone things.

To acquire the best “Magic” one must be as flexible as possible regarding dates & times. If one is flexible it doesn’t have to disrupt the budget mechanics of everyday life. I usually get to where I’m going for around $200 bucks a head. From there it is up to you how extravagant you want to be.  I usually end up with about the cost of $100 bucks a day per person, all in, air, lodging, car, food, etc.  You can do it cheaper depending on if you will be good with hostel type lodging or not, availability of public transportation, or where you eat.

Follow my blog for step by step instructions which will enable you to find your own “Magic” deal.
