Yesterday I spent way too much time on different travel related websites. I was on Apple Vacations looking up Hawaii and then found myself looking at Mexico trips and somehow I ended up looking at cruises to Bermuda on another website which then lead to looking up information for London on Orbitz.
I told you I was all over the place. As much as I want to get back to Hawaii, there are just way too many other places I want to visit as well. I want to go to London and check out a Jack the Ripper tour. I want to lay on the pink beaches of Bermuda. I want to swoon over Australian accents while watching surfers tear up the waves in Australia. I think traveling is one of the best gifts that you can give yourself. Especially if you can travel with friends. I remember how expensive it use to be but it seems even more in reach now, depending on how you book. A perfect example is my Hawaii trip. I booked an Apple Vacation package using a travel agent and was able to make payments. I didn’t need to use a credit card or have all the money right away. I pretty much had a year to pay it off. I just had to put $250 down at the time of booking. I could do the same with any trip booked through Apple. It’s how some of my family pays for their almost yearly trips to Mexico or the Caribbean.
My mom recently expressed that she thinks I should cut back on my trips to save up for a house. The reality is I don’t take that many trips a year, big trips anyway. I think the most expensive trip before this past visit to Hawaii was probably San Diego Comic Con. Luckily I’ve even found ways to cut corners and save money on that trip. The truth is, I just can’t imagine not traveling. It’s amazing to see new places, try new foods and learn about different cultures. Yes, I want a house but I want to be able to travel as well and I know if I can play my cards right, I can do both.
Well, this post was a bit all over the place, wasn’t it?
