It’s been a great week reading more about travel topics and sharing great travel posts on Women Who Money and Women’s Money Talk! We received so many great posts we decided to do one big wrap-up here at the end of travel week!
From Hawaii to Costa Rica to Vietnam – there’s a post here for you! Maybe it’s saving money and traveling on a tight budget. Or the opposite to spend a lot to learn – we all have different ideas of how to spend money on travel!
Revanche from A Gai Shan Life shares more about her family’s 2018 trip to Hawaii and how dog sitting cost quite a bit but was worth every penny! She also shares a detailed expense report, along with vacation highlights.
Maybe a trip to Costa Rica is in your future plans? Here’s Tori’s take on her fabulous trip there last year! You can check out more about her on www.victorimedia.com!
Let’s go to Vegas, baby! But let’s bring the baby! If you have a little one and wonder how a trip to Vegas might work, check out this detailed post from Gen Y Money!
Here’s a great story about going wedding dress shopping in Vietnam! And it wasn’t as expensive as you might think. Check out the gorgeous pictures and see how travel hacking made it all possible!
Are you interested in learning more about saving money, investing, financial independence, and more? You might be interested in attending a Chautauqua! This year’s event is sold out (there is a waitlist) but check out this post from Kathy at Baby Boomer Super Saver to get a better understanding of the event and how it has changed her life!
Maybe you’re not interested in saving but an all-out splurge is in your future! Check out this post from Leigh on a trip to New Zealand a few years back. Was it worth it? Read her story to find out!
Maybe a week at the beach is all that matters to you? Do you want to relax and unwind and one of the country’s top beaches? Check out this post on Siesta Key Beach near Sarasota, Florida. There are ways to be at or near top destinations without paying top dollar.
Here’s a great post about alternatives to top destinations and how they can save you a ton of money! The post is by the UK blogger, The Money Whisperer. See the details (and great pictures) of their “happy place” and how they save money while having a great time!
The Frugal Pharmacist wrote an interesting post about her trip to India and Nepal. Check out what she did with those hotel toiletries that you might leave sitting around (or stick in your bag to take home!) This seems like a great idea (and if you bring have a collection at home, a shelter might use them too!)
Have you heard about young adults taking a “gap year” before college or after they finish before they find their first “real” job? Check out this post by The Female Money Doctor on taking a grown up gap year. It’s a fun and realistic look at what life is like taking a year away from work later in life. Although it can be great fun to explore, she also makes it real – “ Contrary to what Facebook will tell you, travelling for a prolonged period of time is not always fun.”
Although this is an older post, the ideas are still very relevant! How can you fit travel into your life plan? The NZ Muse offers her ideas on how to get creative to get what you want in life.
And to wrap up travel week, Jaymee from $mart Woman shares a guest post from Liz at Ambitious Adulting on how she travelled for four months on a student’s budget! Sounds like quite an adventure and a wonderful learning experience on how to budget and still experience the world!
That’s a wrap! Get out there and enjoy the world! Be mindful of your spending and experience new places. Send us an email with blog posts we can share from your travels!
