Here at Rudderless, you’ll get a rundown of a city or town we’ve visited during a weekend, short trip, mini-break or layover/stopover. We write about the place we stayed, what we ate and what we saw. In addition, we include a custom map/guide with all the locations pinned. In fact, if you subscribe to our newsletter you’ll get our free Short Trip Itinerary PDFs with all the detailed info you need based on the cites we visited in our blog posts. And, as avid lovers of technology, we always share how we incorporate the latest travel apps and gear that helped us maximize our time without feeling rushed.

“In 48 hours, we take a city; see the sights, taste the food, smell the roses, hear the stories and feel the love.”

Christopher Rudder – Owner & Content Creator, Rudderless Travel


For us, travel doesn’t have to mean taking weeks, months or years off work. You don’t need to move across the world to say you’ve “traveled“. Travel can be a weekend away down the coast from your home or a short flight to the next state, province or country.

Are you ready? Come fly with us!
