What is KwaFare

So many times I’ve been asked for help booking trips, flights, award tickets. And I don’t mind. I love helping my friends and family with their travel plans and questions. Researching for a trip, figuring out the details, and finally getting to a new destination are some of my favorite pastimes. I have developed a slight obsession for seeing how much of an itinerary I can get booked with points and miles. And that’s how KwaFare came about.

KwaFare is an English play on the French expression “Quoi faire,” meaning “what to do.” And that’s exactly why I decided to create this blog. I want you to know what to do in various destinations and to find answers to travel questions often asked. I love sharing the tips and tricks I’ve learned in my adventures along the way. Things that I hope can make travel more rewarding for you. 

I have always loved traveling, even if it just meant a couple provinces over where I grew up in Canada. Going somewhere new and different felt like a reset. Well, at least different, maybe not new. Family vacations were usually to the same place, but I loved them. We moved around a lot growing up, and that didn’t change much once grown. I’ve gone from Montreal to Toronto, Detroit, Greensboro, NC, and at present I live in Southern California with my hubby. My itchy feet have now carried me to over 37 countries and 5 of the 7 continents. I have a penchant for discovering new and familiar destinations, preferably with the right amount of chichi and panache for less cash more miles!  And I cannot wait to share with you how you can do it too.

Whether you’re overwhelmed planning a trip or stumped by the never-ending online search for details about a hotel or destination, I hope I can help. Travel and all it entails can be downright intimidating. But when you know “what to do” you’re already half way there.
