In The Great Wide Travel Lifestyle Blog Thirsty Thursdays Bar Reviews Cocktail Recipes And More

The #1 question we’re asked ALL the time is how we can afford to travel so much. While there are many answers to that, one of our best tips for how to afford to travel more is to be more selective with when and where you eat and drink out. Pair that with my bartending experience and our love for beverages, and Thirsty Thursdays was born!

So what exactly is Thirsty Thursdays?

Thirsty Thursdays is our weekly project about all the drinks we love and the places we love having them. We’ll be reviewing bars, breweries, distilleries, cafes, and drink-forward restaurants so you’ll know where to go that will be worth the money. You’ll also get some of my personal cocktail recipes, spirit reviews, and bar knowledge to help you have all your favorite drinks without spending a fortune going out.

We are not just a travel blog; we are a travel lifestyle blog, which means that while we enjoy sharing our love of traveling and our stories of the world (a lot), we know that with most travel blogs, that life feels out of reach for everyone else. There’s a huge gap in knowledge of how some people are able to live their dream life traveling the world, and while we’re not really here to teach you how to become a travel influencer, we are here to show you how you can afford to travel more.

If you want to start traveling more but can't seem to save up the money, this is a great place to start! Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page and you'll get Thirsty Thursday updates every week!

  • Reviews of bars, breweries, distilleries, and drink-forward restaurants
