Welcome to the Girl With Blue Sails travel blog


Welcome to my travel blog. As a world traveler with tons of photos and travel tips floating around in my head, on my phone, and on scraps of paper, I have decided to put everything down in once place. I love creating travel guides based on my past experiences, but I am also passionate about consistently adding new ones based on my current adventures.

My Travel Style

First Class Taste on an Economy Class Budget

I’m a traveler with first class taste on an economy class budget. My travel goals always seem to be above my means. I have limited funds and time off work, but I crave those luxury experiences. Despite any setbacks, I always manage to plan that luxury fix into each and every one of my trips.

Example: You want to lounge in an infinity pool overlooking the Santorini coast, but cannot afford a villa that costs thousands per night.

Girl With Blue Sails Tip

Blue Sails Tip: Book an Airbnb in Santorini with a pool overlooking the sea. There are so many gorgeous and affordable cave homes for rent in Oia, many with outdoor pools, or, even better, heated hot tubs. Be sure to get one with a view, overlooking the caldera and the open sea.
