About the Travel Blog

We're on a budget ... sometimes. We stay in fancy hotels ... sometimes. We're not so wealthy that we can live the life of the "rich and famous" (although we did once share a restaurant dining room with Robin Leach!), but if we're careful about how we spend our money, we can have some pretty amazing experiences. Even better, we're fortunate enough to be able to take our virtual businesses with us, so we earn while we learn!

This blog will provide you with itineraries, travel guides and tips -- and we hope to see you on the road!

How To Get Through Security Faster

Be part of the Trusted Traveler Network and you can zip through airport lines. Well, maybe not zip, but at least avoid having to take off half your clothes, drag your computer out, take off your shoes and remove all your jewels. In other words, you can go through the Pre-Check or the Global Entry lines, both of which - thus far - can be way shorter.

In fact, last week we got to spend about 45 minutes a few feet away from Andy's bachelor (alas, they've since gone their separate ways). Now, even you, can feel like a celebrity as you breeze through security.
