Have you and your family been saving and planning for your Disney World vacation? Have you already checked on ticket and hotel prices? Are you wishing there was a way to save some money and still get the whole Disney experience? Well what if I told you I can give you some basic steps to follow that will help save you money on your Disney vacation! I spend a lot of time at the Disney parks and have learned some pretty easy tricks that help save a little bit of money. Even with a family of five we can spend a day at the parks and not spend a dime.
Generally, when we travel, the most expensive part about the whole trip is just the freaking PLANE TICKET!!
Okay so let's set the scene. There's six days in New York City, five inexperienced students, four modes of transport, three unforgettable restaurants, (only) two major disasters, and one unforgettable trip!
So you want to travel, but have little money? Well you still can. Traveling is only expensive to a high maintenance person. So if you aren’t high maintenance and can save a few hundred dollars, then you are two steps closer to traveling the world. With that being said, here are five tips to traveling on a budget:
“Traveling is SO expensive” is such a common misconception. So many of us use the excuse of “not having enough money” to justify not traveling. But I’m here to tell you just how cheap and easy international travel really can be. And in this article, we’re going to focus on traveling Europe on a tight budget.
If by some fluke you read my previous blog, you know that back in March I quit my job and went traveling. I thought I'd do a quick post to debrief myself on the whole experience, but I've realized as I'm writing I can't cover all four countries and my takeaways in one post, so I'm going to break it down, so it at least makes sense to me. So this is my first. It's a couple of points on traveling I wish I had known before. Here we go...
First, if I wanted to save as much money as possible I had to do some research. I searched sites such as Sky Scanner and Kayak to find some cheap deals then I used what I had learned from those sites to find my ideal, cheapest flight. As for the hotel, I searched Booking.com to find cheap hotel deals and then used what I learned to find my ideal cheap hotel. My research really didn't take long. Once I had shopped around a little it became obvious to me that my choices were limited, after all, budget travel to one of the most expensive cities in the USA isn't going to be the easiest task. Here's what I found and what my plan of action was!

The 2018 Summer will be over in about two months. There is still plenty of fun to be had and some of it can come pretty cheap! Maybe you're still trying to enjoy this year’s record hot weather outdoors, instead of in a motel or hotel. You could be on the last few days driving home from vacation and would like to cut costs. If you're anything like me, you just need to get away from civilization for a little bit. Whichever it is, you need a financial break. I know a park just north of Allegany State Park that can offer you a break for free. I have gone there myself and it's pretty isolated, but don't go alone! It's rumored to be haunted, which is perfect for those who like a ghost hunt all year round!
Iceland's tourism industry has been booming in recent years, and it's no surprise why. It's a magnificent country with breathtaking waterfalls, marvelous volcanos, and miles of vast farmland. The only downside of this country? It can be VERY expensive. But, if you're smart with your money, it is possible to travel to Iceland on a budget. I took a 7-day trip to Iceland recently, and all in all, I spent around $1350. How did I do it? Let me share my tips. :)
It's the UK's hottest recorded heatwave in 123 years (at least a meme I just saw on Instagram says so) and most of us are at a loss on how to deal with it. Do we stuff ice cubes down our bras before work? Do we lie face down on the grass and cry about the CO2 shortage that's pillaging our Prosecco supply? Fear not, my hot friends. Because a solution has been waiting for us all this time, and that solution is Brighton.
