Updated 2022! Wondering how to plan a trip to Hawaii on a budget? Need to figure out what is the cheapest way to travel to Hawaii? This is what value-minded travellers can expect to find in terms of savings, splurges, and steals.
Ten thousand dollars. They were wondering how to plan a trip to Hawaii and that's how much a friend told me they thought it would cost. Ten thousand dollars - EACH. This breaks my heart. Hawaii is one of my favourite destinations. We've just returned from our third trip and I don't think we've spent ten thousand dollars on all three excursions combined. And we're not slumming it either - no illegal camping on the beach, no stealing fruit from private gardens!
Is Hawaii a bargain-basement priced destination? No. Are there plenty of expensive temptations at every turn? Yes.Is Hawaii travel affordable? YES. Can the average person, on a modest budget, still afford to go there? YES. YES. YES! Here's how Ryan and I plan a trip to Hawaii without breaking the bank. If you're wondering what is the cheapest way to travel to Hawaii and how much you save money when you're there -this is the post for you!
Updated for 2022! Prague's best beer tour comes with Czech tapas and wine? Yes! And it's perfect for the non-beer drinker.
The Czech Republic is home to Pilsner, beer halls, brew pubs, and huge, frothy mugs of your favourite suds for less than a dollar. But none of this makes much of an impression on me. I'm just not a beer drinker. My beer aversion is one of several annoying travel quirks that occasionally challenge our social lives and our budgets. I'm the gal always requesting a fancy mineral water at ten times the price of a regular bottle of beer! So why join in on Prague's best beer tour? When in Rome, er.... Prague..... you do as the locals do!
When Ryan and I had the opportunity to hang out with the team from Urban Adventures and be a part of the Prague Beer and Czech Tapas tour, I knew it would be a neat way to see the city. And I was confident that Ryan would love it. But me? I hardly suspected that a wine and lemonade loving girl like myself would have such a fun night! (Update: Sadly, Urban Adventures no longer operates in Prague but you can use this post to create a DIY tour).
Here's where we explored, what we sampled, and how we fell for the different flavors of Prague.
Inside our sentimental visit in a place of peace and reflection. Here's how you can visit St Symphorien Military Cemetery, Belgium. (Updated 2022).
It's difficult to drive down a road in rural Belgium without encountering one of the subtle green signs of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Belgium suffered terribly during the First World War, as did the millions of troops from around the world who fought in the water logged trenches. But as I was to learn, visiting a war cemetery is not just an experience of sadness but also one of inspiration. If you're interested in history, you'll be keen to learn how to visit St Symphorien Military Cemetery, Belgium.
