Hi, thanks for stopping by!

After losing my job, I got rid of my apartment in Los Angeles to travel the world and live in hotels (usually Marriott)

full-time and vlog about my experiences on my YouTube channel, In Search of Traveler.

In 2020, I stayed 103 nights at Marriott properties for $4356, a $42 nightly average and includes properties like the Ritz Carlton in Cancun & W in Midtown Atlanta.


I am passionate about teaching others how affordable travel can be while sharing my experiences as I continue to travel, eat, explore, and live in hotels full-time for $500/week.

Let the posts
come to you.

Thanks for submitting!
