When I grow up……..

I would LOVE to blog about economical travel ideas.


Because I have a passion to travel.

I do.


With my “seven child syndrome”…….

I’m cheap.

So, I have to squeeze every penny out of any trip I go on…..making sure I can get the most bang for my dollar.


I don’t like to just go the normal route…..

I love to find an unusual place…..

Somewhere that you would only read about….

Or see on movies….

And think to yourself.…..

I could NEVER go to a place like that.


Even on a tuna salad budget.

Last minute $9.00 each way…..plus 747 surcharges……making ticket price $54.00 each round trip…..on Free Spirit airlines.

From our home to Niagara Falls.

Finding an un-rented personally owned cottage on Lake Ontario through VRBO.

Making an offer to owner for a fraction of the rental amount….

I often take offers from people last minute on my properties if my vacation property is unbooked.

I would rather a fraction of amount if I can bring in cash flow and cover my cleaning expenses etc…….

So, I know many other owners share the same thought.

But….I would love to blog about doing all of that……


Blog about getting there and realizing that what you thought was unattainable.


Barn like doors on one entire wall……rolled open to allow the cool lake air to blow through an aged cottage with stone fireplace and hardwood floors.

Old wooden windows rolled open to allow cross breezes to flow through the rooms….

Rocky shores….

Mesmerizing view and hypnotic lullaby of the sound of water lapping onto the rocky shore.


A place that I would have been sad to never have seen…….

So, when I grow up, I want to blog about travel and how to get to places you would never think you could go…….or be able to afford to go…..

Sort of like I am now…………


when I grow up and do that…..I will remember to bring my little uploader thing for my camera so I don’t have to take travel photos with my phone ; )

    Lake Ontario is beautiful – I am lucky enough to be a 15 minute drive away! Glad to hear you were able to experience the Niagara Region – I try to remember not to take it for granted living smack dab in the middle of it! 😀

    Judging by what I’ve learned from your CL 101-301 tutorials I wish you would do some travel posts. If I could get deals like that…….mmmmm, I’d even give up going to the beach once in a while! Really $9 plus fees for airfare from SC to Niagra Falls? Thanks for sharing and for entertaining! Take care, VBg (Hugs)
