I chose the name stretchingittotravel because that is what our family does each day!  We have had some wonderful trips and experiences with family and friends in the past.  I hope to share how we do these trips so everyone can experience travel at a reasonable cost.

This blog will share airline and hotel promotions. Also saving money tactics that we use on our travels and how we save on everyday items.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you learn something new and this blog is helpful in some way.

  5. Travel affordable for the fam? Is that possible? That’s why I work for the airlines!

    • I had a good friend who worked for the airlines. It was great back in the 90’s when we could travel for the airport tax fee and there was room on the planes. Those days are gone…

      • I fly all the time and it’s free. Yes. It takes a bit if extra patience but I’ve only been bumped once.

  6. Thanks for liking my blog post “Early fun with Fireworks” I hope you stop by again. Traveling on a budget is becoming an art form for my family!

  7. Thanks for liking my post, Fire and Ice. Our traveling while we were raising our four kids was (mostly) camping in our home province of Ontario and infrequent trips to Trinidad where most of my wife’s family still reside. We retired in 2007 and since have gone further afield. We spend some of our savings every year now on travel – while we still have our health and our declining nest egg and the banks are still open… There are no guarantees in life. Good for you for realizing the value of seeing other places. Our adult children and grandchildren love to camp still, and are closer to nature than they otherwise would have been. Keep traveling and telling your stories!
