  1. I am loving that Cheapskate’s guide to travelling because this girl is always about finding the most affordable options when travelling so I can travel more often! Sure I could go all out and splurge – but then I’d have to wait such a long time til my next trip!

      Yes, maximum travel is the goal! Too bad the flights are still expensive

  2. I’m obsessed with the PCT too! I’m currently following a girl on instagram doing it and it looks insanely gorgeous (and difficult). haha Thanks so much for including our link on your roundup, Hannah. 🙂
