Ever since our days of traipsing through the South of France together, FishPapa and I have loved to travel and see new places. And that hasn’t changed since having children. Our luggage has just increased.

And, I guess, truth be told, we’ve always been budget travelers [5]. When it was time to choose a honeymoon location, airfare to France was actually less expensive than Hawaii. How convenient! We flew across the Atlantic for about $200 roundtrip for each cheap seat!

Today is no different. We know that we’ll have more opportunities to travel if we can cut costs here and there.
