Bryce Conway: Owner of 10XTravel

By Halie Taylor

Bryce Conway: Travel and Personal Finance Guru

On a consistent basis Bryce Conway found himself giving travel advice to friends, family or anyone who asked. Becoming quite the expert on topics like points and miles he felt compelled to help more people with his insider knowledge so with this in mind Bryce created 10XTravel.

"[10XTravel is] a community focused on travels, personal finance, and the lifestyle that is afforded by being able to travel the world for next to nothing."

Sounds awesome, right!?

Bryce hopes his site will help those yearning to travel, but who are afraid of the financial commitment, learn that they can travel without a lot of financial strain. This is such an important mission to Bryce because he knows first hand how life changing travel can be.

His exposure to so many different cultures has given him a brand new outlook on people and how differently each person experiences the world. Travel has also given him the opportunity to really look inside himself, to figure out all his likes and dislikes and to really learn who he is.

The need to depend on yourself and make decisions in tough situations is a character builder like no other and Bryce loves that he has cultivated himself into person he is today because of this.

For Bryce, travel is a chance to break out of your normal routine and become aware of the world around you which is why he urges people to take the leap and begin traveling.

Travel forces you to escape your comfort zone and thrusts you into situation where you learn all sorts of new things whether that be about a particular culture, a certain tradition or more about yourself.

With so many amazing trips under his belt, Bryce struggles to nail down just one destination that is better than the rest because each destination has something unique and special about it.

However, Thailand is a destination that always sticks out in his mind because it has so much to offer: incredible people, amazing food, low cost of living and a range of beautiful sites/areas.

Another "traveler's utopia" that sticks out in Bryce's mind is Italy. Having spent time in such places as Rome, Venice, Florence and Tuscany, Bryce was blown away by the landscape of the area while food and wine were just as amazing as the people.

All of these things, added to the laid back culture and inspiring history, make Italy a must visit destination.
