The Wanderlust Travel Guide 
to Planning the Perfect Getaway for Any Budget


Enjoying an escape to popular destinations is often easier to manage into the budget when considering off-season travel. Off-peak rates and special discount deals are usually at their lowest prices prior to and following peak travel season. Do a little research to avoid the crowds and the hustle and bustle by visiting earlier or later in the season to really get the best value for your money.


Mastering the travelers perfect packing list is an essential part of planning, the desire to travel with all of the comforts of home while away on a trip doesn't translate well when following airline baggage allowances, schlepping tons of stuff about, or when accommodating other travel companions. Many travelers, myself included, prefer the convenience of rolling along with wheeled luggage. The sizes, shapes and designs offered are modern, streamlined, lightweight, yet rugged and made to maneuver around effortlessly. Here's a tip- travel light using packing cubes inside of rolling luggage, capable of fitting under an airline seat as a carry-on.


The trusty luggage that keeps me at jet-setter status, especially for a quick getaway, is the lightweight  Kalya Rolling Tote from eBags. When it's time to make a quick getaway, this bag is the perfect size to easily pack away all that I will need to travel. Of all of the luggage that we have used to travel, this is my personal favorite bag, roomy enough for all of my basics, and even can store a packing cube for my little one as well as myself for family trips.



The Kalya Rolling Tote is available in black nylon and designed to fit underneath most airplane seats measuring 14”W x 9”D x 14”H and is slightly tapered toward the top. Premium craftsmanship from an innovative research and development team resulting in expert attention to detail right down to their unique coil design which protects the zipper stitching from abrasion, extending the lifetime of the bags. As is business standard, the eBags promise offers customers- "If you are not completely satisfied with your eBags product at any time, we will happily make it tight.

Find a balance between planned vacations and those last minute getaways, both can be money-saving options. Selecting a travel destination well in advance of your intended date of travel will score competitive prices. Remember to research travel insurance and cancellation policies for your protection in the event of an emergency. On the flip side, if your life allows the flexibility of booking travel with a week's or even a day's notice- ready, set, go! The last-minute cancellations of other travelers just might work out to your advantage.


The law of attraction states- ask, believe, receive. If your travel research has you stumped, ask a travel buddy, join a travel-related community or go straight to the source for the most accurate information. Check travel planning websites and deal website to find lesser known discounted rates and ideal travel destinations. There is so much wonder to see in the world, make it happen.
