Betsi & Jim Hill, Luxury Travelers on a Budget
CONTACT US: email@example.com
Welcome to Betsi's World! We’re Betsi & Jim, sending you warm wishes from Fort Pierce, Florida.
We LOVE to travel …. In luxury! We’ve taken 2 week cruises across the Atlantic to England in a balcony stateroom; stayed in 2-story suite on the beach at an exclusive all-inclusive resort; stayed at old sugar plantation on Kauai. We've taken a seaplane to the Dry Tortugas for an unforgettable snorkeling adventure; taken a SNUBA tour in Jamaica; and explored primeval forests in Washington State.
Jim and I have been married 30 years, and when we first got married we lived on a shoestring budget because we refused to go into debt. We saved our money and did not buy new cars, or big houses. We bought what we could afford. And we could not afford luxury vacations. Our vacations were spent with family. Weekends were spent on our fixer-upper project sailboat. We scrimped and saved; bought our clothes at second-hand stores – and yes, I was a fashion diva who could mix expensive clothes with less expensive finds and look like a fashion plate.
We took our first real vacation when we’d been married about fifteen years. We wanted to take a cruise, so I hunted and searched for weeks finding the best possible deal. We took that first cruise vacation in an interior stateroom, for ten days, and it only cost us $1,500! We were able escape the daily rat race, and spend time away with just each other. It was heavenly! We held hands, walked on deck daily, laughed, explored different towns throughout the Caribbean, and rediscovered each other. That trip? It was our Life Saver!
Today, we’ve sold our business, and retired, and bought a home on Florida’s Treasure Coast. We take boat journeys onboard Saltwater Gypsea, frequent vacation getaways, an annual “dream trip”, and eat out 1 to 2 times week. But I still remember that first vacation – and the magic that we felt, and what a life saver it was for us.

Hi everyone! I'm Zach, and I'm a 10-year-old Maltese. My role is to supervise my parents (aka, Betsi & Jim) while they are on their boating adventures. I can be found taking the helm of Saltwater Gypsea whenever I can on our travels.
