How often do you travel in a year and how do you pay for your travels?

Jan 5, 12:16AM EST0

4-6 times a year( which includes long weekend travel as well) I travel on a budget, and find cheap airfare by traveling to and from on a tues or wednesday . Sometimes package deals on sites like cheaptickets.com offer the best deals.  I do purchase separately a lot too..I am just constantly online looking for the deals!

Jan 5, 1:06AM EST0

What is your take on booking through a travel agent?

Jan 4, 11:38PM EST0

I dont use them ever., I did way back in the day- when online travel sites were non exsistent . Travel agents may be able to find hidden deals, but you are also going to pay them for that, I am guessing!

Jan 5, 1:07AM EST0

Have you been to any countries or cities that left you disappointed afterwards?

Yes..I was a bit disappointed in Nashville TN, the downtown was lame, and Indianapolis is not a place I'd go to again..
