My daughter and I decided to do something a little out of the ordinary for a holiday this summer. I've been working and doing a lot of school work lately, so some mother/daughter time was needed. We are fortunate that Dartmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia, are within driving distance, so we took off on a mini-vacay!
I like to camp, but I don't like all of the "lugging" involved in camping (tents, tarps, etc), so we decided to try something a little different. I found Shubie Campground (visit their website here: http://shubiecampground.com/). Shubie Campground has campsites available for those interested in tenting or bringing a trailer, but what we found that intrigued us was the yurt available on site - so as my daughter put it, we decided to "yurt it up". It should be noted that there is only one yurt available, so be sure you book early if you are interested!
Shubie Campground is connected to Shubie Park, which has a fabulous trail system, more on that…

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…
