Ellen first traveled overseas at age 15 when her father insisted upon sending her on a school trip to Germany. And that’s when it happened: high atop Switzerland’s Mt. Pilatus, she was bitten by the travel bug and has never quite recovered. Since then, she has traveled to nearly 25 countries on five continents. She currently resides in Tianjin, China and continues to hold her father responsible for all the money she has spent on travel since that first trip to Europe.
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.
