If you want to travel the world but don’t have the time to sail across an ocean, there is an option for you!  TravelGnu.

Mark, a fellow cruiser, decided he wanted to make traveling more accessible to more people, and so he created TravelGnu. The idea is simple, when you cruise, you will stumble upon a cool area and find great deals on travel excursions because they are not well known and not well advertised. TravelGnu takes all this local knowledge and puts it on one site that lets you plan and book your next adventure at a great rate and see things you wouldn’t have otherwise known about! 

While our boat is on the hard getting a refit, Maddie and I took small “vacations” to other places to take a break from the boatwork. Since we are on a rather tight budget, cost was one of the most important features of our decision making. 

When you visit TravelGnu, just type your destination into the yellow “” box and it will take you to a page where you can find the best deals every for your destination. You can also search through the TravelGnu page to find adventure and excursion packages for your destination that way you can have an instant adventure with minimal time away from work!

When we visited Flores, we found a great hotel room (bed and breakfast) for only €200 for 5 nights! This included breakfast for each morning, as well as very knowledgable staff about local restaruants and sights. This was a great way for us to unwind after a long month of boatwork, and it could also be a great way for you to unwinde on your vacation time!
