About

We’re here to help you check off those exotic bucket list destinations at an affordable price. After all, a bucket list doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. As a couple, we’ve been able to knock out the majority of our bucket list destinations before the age of 30, traveling to over 17 countries in less than two years. We visited over 30 amazing cities in 2016 alone! And we didn’t skimp on the food and activities that we had once we were there. We didn’t have to because we grabbed flights at 60% less than what you’d typically pay from the carrier.

One year, we flew from Houston to Zurich during peak season to ski in the Swiss Alps for New Years Eve. We watched sunrise from above the clouds during our summit to Mt Fuji in Japan. In Iceland, we ice climbed the largest glacier in Europe, snorkeled between two tectonic plates in freezing glacial waters, crawled through the tiniest crevasses of ancient lava caves, and are still here to tell about it!

I should mention that we’ve done all our traveling while both working full-time jobs. We’re travel junkies who want to explore the world on a schedule that fits the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s what we aim for: practical travel dates with incredibly low prices to the faraway lands that we daydream about at work.

People have always asked me how I’m able to pull off these amazing getaways, so I built this blog to share the resources I’ve used in order to help others check items off their bucket list without breaking the bank. You don’t have to wait until you’re retired to live your bucket list. You can do it today…or tomorrow…or in the next eight months. That’s how far out we’ll help you find deals to amazing destinations. We’ll share ideas and make sure you know of deals early (way early) to take advantage of the lowest fares! But act fast, these fares change and can disappear quickly.

There’s no magic ingredient to traveling in luxe. All it takes is a lot of planning, hard work in research, and perseverance in finding the best deals out there. At Bestalyst, we’ll put in the elbow grease to find you the cheapest flights and share bucket list ideas that you won’t find on those giant commercial sites. We’ll share travel tips, insider guides, and the most reliable sources to make your dream vacation a success.

We’ve built experiences for ourselves outside the typical tourist norms and we like it that way. We think you will too. Believe me, bucket list worthy travel is possible and there’s no time like the present to make it happen!
