The lazy-traveler's guide to budget travel tips

11min

Kate Ready loves lists. So here's one: Abu Dhabi native, Coloradan, Berkeley grad, Camino de Santiago pilgrim, writer, budget traveller. She dreams of being a journalist, a novelist, a French woman, and a transient cloud. She prays to Maya Angelou and rereads to "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" periodically. Oh, and she has webbed toes. No, this does not make her swim faster.
