How to Travel When You Don't Have a Flexible Work Schedule

Always dreaming up the next destination and not letting a full-time office job hold me back from seeing the world.  I hope that Gold-Hatted Lover inspires you to get out and book that trip, and provides you the tips and recommendations you need to make that trip the best one possible.


New and need a place to start?

“Then wear the gold hat if that will move her;

if you can bounce high, bounce for her too,
till she cry ‘Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover,
I must have you!'”

Gold-Hatted Lover occasionally receives vendor/brand sponsorships for mentioning their products and services.  This does not affect my review; my opinion is 100% honest.
