Our Mission

Improving your trips by providing key travel information right when you need it while presenting it concisely to save you time and money, making traveling as easy as possible. 

Extraordinary Experiences

I first solo traveled Europe at 14 with money I earned mowing neighborhood lawns. I was an exchange student to New Zealand in high school, traveling Australia and Oceania  extensively afterward. I traveled much of Asia before I finished college, and I had traveled national parks and other remote places as much as possible in between.  I started Weekend Explorer more than 20 years ago to share my travel knowledge to help my friends (some I’ve yet to meet) and family to enjoy similar extraordinary experiences.
