I love contests!

So this is a "semi-serious" post.  Semi because it's fun.  Serious because I'm serious about contests.

Before I share this contest, I will share a "real life experience" I had last night (see ... I'm reading the feedback from the surveys!).  I participated in my very first "Twitter Party".  What's a Twitter party you ask?  It's usually associated with a hashtag and/or a specific Twitter account.  In this case it was #LeonsSuperSale (sidenote - yes, Leons is having a "Super Sale" this weekend).  So the host asks questions and you answer and winners are picked for some awesome prizes.  Pretty cool right.  I have to say it was a lot of fun, although Twitter moves so quickly it was hard for me to keep up, but I'm learning (yay me!).  I highly recommend participating in one if you are on Twitter (that's kind of essential).  I will share any I hear about that are upcoming.

Anyway, on to the latest contest.  I will start with a little disclaimer for readers who don't live in New Brunswick, Canada (I specify Canada for the sake of my American readers), the event details I will share are specific to New Brunswick, Canada.  There are likely similar events that exist in your community though, so have a little Google search and check it out! 

Did you know that we have an "in motion Parks & Trails Day"?  Well we do.  Many of these events are taking place this weekend.  For a list of these events, check out:

Anyway, there will be a little photo contest during these events.  I've included the poster below.  Just take a picture during your visit to an NB Park/Trail and post it on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #inmotion or #enmovement to be entered in to the contest.  You could win a special New Brunswick Parks prize pack!

And just a reminder about this Blog's contest (not restricted to New Brunswickers), deadline to enter that contest is June 4th at 12:00 PM Atlantic.  We've had some entries so far, but your odds are still pretty good to win!

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…
