Hi! Welcome to ChasingAnna! If you haven’t been here before, please take some time to wander around and see if you find anything that piques your interest! If you do, (or if you don’t) and you’d like to see some specific content, please head down to the bottom of the page and leave me a message so that I can improve the content that I’m putting out!
If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to head over to the About Us article to learn more about me (Anna) and my fiancé (Chase) who are the creators of this blog! While that post explains a little more about who we are, I wanted to take some time in this one to explain why we are here!
Today, travel blogs are a dime a dozen. There are lots of people out there, living their best lives, traveling the world, and posting fancy Instagram pictures to prove it. The thing is, those who are really successful are either making enough money or getting enough free travel out of their blogs that the trips they go on are usually crazy expensive and super unattainable. It’s fun to watch and read about other people’s cool trips, but when it comes down to it, most people would rather take their own. (I know I would!)
When Chase and I started traveling together, we were both college students. We went to Chicago, Tennessee, Colorado, and New York while we were both full-time students. The summer after Chase graduated we went for 5 days to Arizona and spent a week in Costa Rica. I am still in school and we have been all over the country, as well as to France, Jordan, and Turkey. Everyone we know wants to know how we manage to take so many awesome trips without paying a ton of money. The solution is simple: travel points!
The thing that makes our travel so unique is that it’s actually achievable by most people! That was what drove us to create this blog. We want to share our trips and the tips we’ve learned along the way… But more than that we want to help other people get to do the same things! If you are someone who wants to be able to travel but doesn’t have a ton of money to do so, (or if you do have a ton of money but you want it to stretch even farther) congratulations! You’ve come to the right place!
If you’re a super beginner, don’t worry; I suggest you start by learning about points and your credit score. If you know the basics but are nervous about getting a credit card or jumping into the points game, learn a little more about how to keep your cards under control and how to reach the spending goal on your first card! If you know all of this as well, feel free to poke around and see what we have that you like, and again, please let me know what else you’d like to see!!
