Hello and Welcome to the Common Sense Traveler Blog.  Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  This spot is where travel and passion intersect and take on a life of their own.
After receiving numerous requests for travel planning advice, I decided to create this blog. There are times when taking agency tours may be the best option for some people, but it isn't always affordable for others.
Whatever works for you, is great.
That said, there are occasions when using an agency is the best possible scenario.  And, it can be more convenient to use a company for day trips, as well.
 Most of the time, I have made my trips possible by planning them myself to save money which I would rather spend on more experiences, or mementos.
Here, you’ll see travel tips along with the wacky/random side of traveling, and the more refined and cultural side. I hope it helps you with your own journey:)
