A budget vacation – consider a moratorium

Summer is in full swing and rising mercury levels call for a fresh break from summer. We’re thinking of Pina Coladas, the party and an outdoor beach! This will require planning, budgeting, making some important calls, storing and packing! Lots of bags and travel. Are you someone who is running low on cash or saving for an apartment in a better neighborhood than how you would bring home a party? How about a “stay-in”?

Think? All the money you will save, all this packing that you don’t have to bother with, never have to sit in the seat of that crashed plane and especially endless time waiting at the airport if your flight is delayed. If you play your cards directly, you can plan an amazing vacation right from the comfort of your home! Below are some ideas that will help you plan a great location.

1) Foreign food and drink! One exciting part of the vacation is experiencing a new culture and all the cooking and drinking brought with it. Thanks to YouTube, we can search for any and every recipe under the sun and learn how to make it at home. You can plan a party in your backyard and spice up the meal by adding some new entries and original course items to your menu instead of the usual bar sales. Guests will be thrilled and you will be able to save a lot of cash! Similarly instead of the usual margarita and lemon water supply you can serve your guest a bull shooter and a side car.

2) Outdoor activities – Stabilization means staying at home all day. You can plan outdoor activities that have been missing for a long time. What about that cliff diving trip you always wanted to go to but couldn’t because of work and evening MBA classes? Now’s your chance, sign up for one or travel with your friends. Remember how to read for free once you get there and make sure all safety pre-requisites before giving a splash!

3) Local Festival – If you are a foodie who likes a dish with a palette of exotic flavors, how is the local food festival organized every summer season? Entrepreneurs with exceptional culinary skills end up here in a food truck bringing your taste to the world! Plan a trip with family or go with your friends, we’re sure you won’t be able to do enough!
