Jeremy Branham

Jeremy Branham Born and raised in the southern part of the US, I have made Sacramento my home for the last 10 years. My love for travel was inspired by my very first trip overseas to Estonia. I've traveled all over the US, Europe, and can't wait to explore more. I am a full time working dad and husband who loves to save money and experience the world through travel. I don't have to go far to do this as I love exploring the beautiful areas of California.

I am retiring from travel blogging but Budget Travel Adventures continues

October 24, 2012.  That’s the day everything changed. While I was in Miami for the Expedia College Football Travel Tour, everything went wrong.  I was as lonely and discouraged as I’d ever been.  I was burned out, emotionally drained, and didn’t want to travel any more.  I missed home and the people closest to...

A sacrebleu Sacre Coeur sunset

The heartbeat and underbelly of Paris At the bottom of the hill, the underbelly of Paris comes to life as artists and colorful figures roam the streets.  Bohemian figures with a flair for the creative mix with prostitutes in the red light district of Paris. Pigalle contains the famous Moulin Rouge where sex shops...

4th of July, a different side of me, and a world domination summit in Portland

Fireworks. Meant to symbolize “the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air.” Something that was tragic and ugly we now celebrate as beautiful and a symbol of our freedom. So much of life is spent running from the chaos and ignoring the tragic. But what if the chaos was celebrated? What...

Budget travel: A Paris sunset with gargoyles at Notre Dame

Notre Dame bares her backside – Travel photo of the week Walking along the banks of the Seine River, Notre Dame stands as a gothic fortress in the Île de la Cité.  Many gather around her massive towers and peer inside this historic, yet modern, cathedral.  Climbing to the top, humans can enjoy a Paris...

The gargoyle of Notre Dame and a Paris sunset

With dark eyes, he peers down from the rooftop of Notre Dame eyeing the people below while keeping an eye on the city of Paris. Many people come to experience Paris. However, no one sees the city like this day after day, night after night. What does this gargoyle know about...

From boy to man, a journey to Niagara Falls

From boy to man, a journey to Niagara Falls

On this late May morning, I boarded the bus and headed to Niagara Falls as we rolled down the highway a little after 7 am. As a boy, my bus experience was different. Leaving the US, we traveled through New York and arrived in Niagara Falls. Instead of tourists and...

Awash in a Whirlpool: the secret Niagara Falls hiking trail

Awash in a Whirlpool: the secret Niagara Falls hiking trail

As I sat on the rocky shores, I stared at the turquoise waters as they swirled and sloshed like a spin cycle set in slow motion.  Nature’s  hand carved a serene, rhythmic masterpiece through the river.  Underneath, it’s fury raged with currents and forces that could kill a man in minutes. I was paralyzed...

I am not a full time traveler (and why you don’t have to be either)

I am not a full time traveler (and why you don’t have to be either)

As a 9 to 5 traveler, I probably travel more than the average 40 hour a week person. However, I also live a life many people can relate to – full time job, house, car, family, daily routines and stresses. I don’t travel full time. Yet I want show people who...

The Caped Crusader, an unstoppable train, and the perfect Hollywood script in Pittsburgh

Batman roams the dark streets of Gotham as a hero with a dark past. Nearby, a runaway train races down the tracks ready to destroy anything that gets in its path. In a nearby prison, a flesh eating psychopath torments and plays games with an FBI agent. Has this city gone...

Making friends with the enemy – my story of the USA vs Canada soccer rematch

As I walked inside, the place was packed. I could barely move through the crowd. As I walked to my seat, I looked around. Maybe this wasn’t a good idea. A sea of red and white surrounded me. Flags were waving, voices screaming, and here I was right in the middle.
