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…

Winter is over (although, I know for some, it feels like it's still here). We are now approaching summer. We're on the "downward slide" for kids to finish school for the year, and for people to prepare for summer vacations from work.
Planning a vacation is sometimes a dreaded task for some, but if you are a bargain hunter, like me, vacation planning can be fun. Seriously. If you have some flexibility in terms of where you are going, and when, the planning can be even more fun! It's like starting with a blank canvas, waiting for the first swipe of a paintbrush.
These are a few basic tips to keep in mind to help find some deals for your upcoming summer travel:
1 - Be as Flexible as Possible - the more leeway you have in terms of your travel destination and/or dates, the more you can potentially take advantage of last minute promotions. In terms of a hotel, some hotels may offer last minute discounts to fill their hotels.
2 - Monitor Prices - This is a sugges…
