A girl, a boarding pass, and a camera phone. That's the center of No Bags to Check. I'm a 30-something who has lived in Baltimore, Boston, London, and now Chicago with a passion for travel. I love racking up frequent flier miles, but am not afraid of a long bus or car ride to get where I'm going. NBTC chronicles my travels around the country and the world, as well as my thoughts on travel-related tv shows, books, music, products, websites, etc. I tend to gravitate towards the quirky and unique whether it's near my apartment in Rogers Park or half-way across the world. My travel style is definitely budget-friendly, but with the mindset that sometimes a little lavishness never hurt anyone.
