Melissa is a social strategist from Boise, ID who loves traveling as much as possible and using points and miles to have the means to do so.
Melissa’s favorite places to explore are U.S. National Parks where she’s currently working with her partner to become the youngest couple to visit all 423 national park sites. When she’s not flying Southwest or hitting the road in her adventure van, you can find Melissa spending way too much time reading hotel reviews on TripAdvisor and looking up the hottest vegan restaurants on Yelp.

Our total for 10 nights in Maui plus RT airfare, food, and a rental car was under $500 cash.
