Justin Billard grew up overseas, moving to a new country — and a new continent — every few years with his family. By the time he turned 18, Justin had lived in five different countries. His travel highlights include horse trekking in the mountains of southwestern China’s Sichuan Province, viewing the breath-taking coastline of South Africa’s Garden Route, gazing out across Alaska’s Harding Ice Field (and realizing it’s the size of Rhode Island!), helping build a hospital in La Romana, Dominican Republic, and SCUBA diving in Egypt’s Ras Mohammed National Park. Through all of this, he has learned that no matter which corner of the globe you’re in, there is beauty to be found in the landscape, people, and culture.
Hi, we’re Ellen & Justin!
After spending a grueling 6 months scouring every inch of a guidebook just to plan a measly two-week trip, we vowed to make travel planning easier on ourselves and less time-consuming for you from now on. That's why we developed The Time-Crunched Traveler, a travel information site that helps you make the most of your limited vacation time.
