Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

Why would you want to read it?  Or why do I think people want to read it?  Who knows?  I'm overtired, so I think everything I say or think is interesting, so I thought "why not post it on the internet for random people to read and criticize".... because I'm like that.

First random thought - You know how people always say "why does everyone think they deserve their own show" when referring to some reality tv star?   It's because they can get their own show!  Obviously!  That's why we're watching them, and that's why other people are watching them, and that's why their show is still on the air!  I heard someone say that the other day about the Jersey Shore.  Here's the conversation I eavesdropped on:

Girl 1 - That show "Jersey Shore" is so stupid.  I don't know why people think they deserve their own show.
Girl 2 - I know, they're all idiots.
Girl 1 - It's so stupid, in last night's episode, Sammie and JWoww fighting... like punching each other.  So stupid!"
Girl 2 - I know, and they fought last season too.
Girl 1 - It's such a dumb show, I mean, I bet if they followed us around with cameras it would be way more interesting.
Girl 2 - It SO would!

So, a few points here:
1 - You say the show is dumb, but you've obviously watched it, and watched it more than once....
2 - You think a show about your own life would be more interesting?  What are you doing that's so great?  Then people can have a discussion about you and how your show is "so stupid".

Anyway, hope you've enjoyed my first random thought for the day!  Hopefully there will be many more to come.

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Travelling on a Budget Series - Part 1 - Accomodations

My family and I have been fortunate to be able to travel regularly.  I often get asked about how we can afford to travel.  I'm going to share my money saving tips to help you reach your travel goals.  I have a lot of information to share so this will be a series of posts.  In this, part 1, I will be sharing my tips specific to accommodations - I will follow up with tips on flights, eating on vacation, activities/entertainment, and rental cars.

Before a continue, a little disclaimer - It's important to have an in depth understanding of your own budget.  It's important not to travel "beyond your means".  So that being said - Understand that in addition to my regular full-time job, I have taken part-time jobs in the past (fitness instructor, paid contributor to blogs, etc) to help us save for vacation.  I am not a financial adviser or any kind of financial professional, but my best recommendation is to go through a budgeting exercise first, before you start planning…
