Advisor - Andy Knowles


Always finding the best "bang for my buck." Balancing time between North Carolina and California, I'm constantly researching LGBTQIA+, pet-friendly and high-end travel for a reasonable price tag.

My travel style

I've had the opportunity to travel to over 30 countries and have learned a lot. From solo backpacking in hostels through Southeast Asia to luxury accommodations for groups in Vienna, Austria, I've always prioritized experiencing new places and cultures while keeping cost in mind. I now typically travel with my partner and sometimes my dog. You can find me looking for good food, unique experiences and safe destinations for my LGBTQIA+ community.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Backpacking through Southeast Asia. 

  • Taking planes and trains through Europe.

  • Exploring the beautiful US National Parks. 

  • Covering (almost) every square mile of Maui, HI.

Dreaming of:

  • Tel Aviv, Israel.

  • Tokyo, Japan. 

  • Burlington, VT. 

  • Key West, FL.

One thing I can't travel without...

AmEx and Priority Pass airport lounge passes.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I managed to survive a week in Cambodia with no wallet or money.

  2. My dog has been to more countries than I have.

  3. I bought a burger and beer in Iceland that was $50 (which was an average cost).
