Can You Really Afford To Travel To Your Heart’s Content?

We all like to travel, albeit to differing degrees. If you are keen to travel as much as possible, then you will obviously enough need to find a way to make it work financially. This can, however, be one of the most difficult aspects of getting to travel as much as you would like. It can take a lot of forward planning in order to be able to afford to travel, and the longer you want to travel the more money you will need to try and scrape together. In this post, we are going to look through just a few of the things you might want to consider if you want to be able to afford your next travels.

Road trip to Savannah, Georgia!

Well let me start off by saying we had a GREAT time on our little vacation! It was awesome seeing everyone after so many years have passed. My mother & father are doing good, despite health problems. It was SO good to see them again. It was my girls’ first time meeting their grandparents. It was such a special time!

The drive there was long yes, but it was very exciting! Seeing all of the states and different things was fun. The girls did great, too! There was only one instance where Jacey was tired and couldn’t get comfy to sleep. That was when we split our trip up and stayed the night in a hotel. Ok, let me change that to MOTEL…lol! Was NOT a fan of the place, but it was 11:30 at night and we HAD to stop. It wasn’t a slum, but just not the greatest. :/
We slept, got up in the morning, had breakfast & was back at it. We arrived in Savannah, Georgia that evening at around 10:30-11:00 pm. So that was the drive there. The time we spent there was great. It also helped that we had a great hotel to stay We had a nice little suite with separate bedrooms & bathrooms, a living area & kitchen. It was nice! read more

Savannah Trip -Monday

Monday we woke up refreshed and glad to have a good night’s sleep! We were also glad that we had no more traveling to do for awhile! So Monday morning we went downstairs and had breakfast in the hotel. It was delicious! They had so many things to choose from and it was FREE! Ha! Yes, this hotel offers free breakfast every morning, and free supper M-F! Woo-Hoo!
After breakfast we all got ready to leave for my mom & dad’s house. When we got there, my sisters were both there, my brother, one of my nephews, and brother-in-law. It was so exciting to see everyone. This is when my parents, one of my sisters & nephew got to meet my girls for the very first time! It was great! Jacey was a little shy (but only at first), and Jadyn was smiling & talking right from the start! ๐Ÿ˜€

After staying there for quite awhile, I wanted to show Jace & the girls around Savannah a little bit. So, we went downtown to Forsyth Park and down by the river on River Street. I took lots of photos in which I will have to share later. I have to get them off of my camera first! ๐Ÿ˜‰ read more

The Road Trip

I recently found out that my mother’s health has took a turn for the worse. A last minute decision was made to take a trip to Georgia to visit my family. After weighing the costs, we decided we would drive to Georgia. I really wanted to see my family, as I haven’t since 2004 -at my wedding. A trip was LONG overdue.
Two days later, we are here! It took 2 full days of driving to get here, We left Saturday morning, and got here Sunday night at around 10:30 pm. Saturday night, we stopped late at a hotel and slept, then was back at it Sunday morning. It was a LONG drive that seemed like it would never end…LOL! Day 1 was fun, but on day 2 we were tired of it. Although I will say that we enjoyed seeing the states from the view of our SUV. Flying, you don’t get to see all of that, but then again, with flying you’re there MUCH faster, ha!
It was great, though! I forgot how beautiful Tennessee is. Breathtaking! As for Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, & Kentucky, it was all new to me. It was really cool! ๐Ÿ™‚
Here are the states we drove through, in order! North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and then finally GEORGIA! PHEW! ๐Ÿ˜‰ What a trip!
So here we are in our hotel in Savannah, Georgia! Next post will be more about our hotel & much more–stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜€
