Our Mission

To empower others to travel more and travel better by sharing the knowledge & techniques we’ve developed over the years, which have allowed us to pursue our family’s travel goals within our budget.

It may come as a surprise to some, but we’re an average family in many ways. We had our kids in our early 20s and have spent the majority of the last 13 years working hard and carefully juggling the financial responsibilities that come with supporting 4 people—2 of which spent most of their younger years in speech and occupational therapy multiple times a week (we’re a high-functioning special needs family). We’ve always lived on a tight budget and we still watch every penny.

The truth is, if we weren’t capable of finding cheap flights we couldn’t afford the average overseas airfare for 4 people multiple times a year. If we weren’t capable of scoring great hotel stays, we wouldn’t be able to stay overseas for weeks at a time. In order to make travel work for us, we had to figure out how to put together amazing trips on small budgets all on our own. It took a lot of time, a lot of research and tons of work, but we figured out how to make it happen and that’s exactly what we want to share with you through our online courses!

Jet Lag Nation Travel Courses

Doria Murphy

I know this is the part where I’m supposed to talk about myself in the third-person, going down a list of my history, boasting about accomplishments, etc.

Can I tell you a secret? I really hate writing my own bio. In fact, I find it to be one of the most cringe-worthy tasks I’ve had to do over the years.

Here’s the thing: I’m not really that special in many ways. I just happen to be really good at analyzing and researching information. That’s it!

It was those skills that enabled me to develop the tips and techniques I personally use to book our family’s trips–the same tips and techniques I share in our courses.

While I do think it takes a certain skill set to compile all the info I share and relay it in an understandable way, I think that anyone can learn to do what I do for my family.

That’s not just me being modest.

It’s because I genuinely believe this that I’ve worked so hard to develop courses that give others a shortcut to learning that same info.

I designed our travel courses with the purpose of empowering you by giving you the tools to be able to travel more and travel better. I want you to feel confident in your ability to book your own amazing trips.

The world is a mind-opening place and I personally think there’s no better way to experience it than in person through travel.

I can’t wait to see where your travels take you!
