Luxury Travel Blog And Guide

Before this journey began, we engaged in a bit of luxury travel as part of our business travel. Eric and I would each be disappointed if an upgrade did not go through, and the thought of staying at a hostel was unheard of. But, when we left the US in 2012, and we left our luxury travel lifestyle, we were on a budget. We had no idea how long the budget would last, or if we could make this digital nomad lifestyle really work.

For a while, we traveled more like flashpackers than backpackers, staying in slightly nicer accommodations, ensuring we were always online and connected. Since that time, though, our focus on comfort, a good night’s sleep, and a little bit of luxury travel has been our goal. When we are not renting apartments to live like a local, therefore, we grab every chance we get to experience luxury travel!

What is Affordable Luxury Travel?

Most luxury travelers don’t actually need the private jet, the helicopter transfer, the Dom Pérignon welcome, and the private butler. Okay, a lot of that stuff would be nice. But, there is a level of traveller that cannot afford that experience on every trip, but still strives for a luxury travel experience.

And, that, is what affordable luxury means to us. It’s not just the number of stars of the hotel, but it includes the type of experience people seek when traveling. Check out what affordable luxury travel means to us.

Luxury Travel Means Luxury Dining

Luxury Travel Means Luxury Dining

Our luxury travel doesn’t begin and end with fancy hotels, or even business and first class flights. For us, luxury travel includes luxury dining too. After all, we primarily travel on our stomachs.

I love my street food, and am always looking for a good deal. I credit the street food scene in Asia for starting my career as a full blown foodie.

But, sometimes a little luxury dining is in order: a nice glass of wine, truffles, fois gras, multiple courses, snooty waiters, I love it all! Okay, maybe I could go without the snooty waiters.

Of course, with all of the amazing luxury dining experiences we’ve had in the last few years, I’ve yet to come across a memorable snooty waiter. In fact, we are often able to eat luxury food all over the world, with friendly service, and a full blown discussion of the local ingredients and the recipes.

And, let’s not forget about the wine. We’ve been exploring wine tourism destinations as well, learning about lesser known wine regions in ItalySpain, and Portugal.

Here are some posts from our favorite luxury dining experiences:

Luxury Travel – Business & First Class

Eric may be the #AvGeek in the household, but I don’t stand in his way when he tries to find unique ways to cash in our miles for luxury travel experiences in the air.  From flying United Global First to Cathay Pacific Business Class, we have found another way to experience luxury travel – 35,000 feet up!  In the mean time, we have figured out not only how to book these flights, but how to make the most of the journey.
