Cost-Cutting When Traveling

I always buy some magazines for me to learn some tips and to get some whereabouts from around the globe as well. I am a traveler but because of the expensive fares in the plane or the expensive souvenirs that I could grab at the place I am visiting, I instead limit myself of doing so but this summer, no one could ever resists the beauty of the beach and the beauty of the nature. Summer is the only season we could unwind with the family since the kids doesn’t have school. But before we go and booked our flight then, here’s the cost cutting tip from Good Housekeeping.

  • Register Online For Coupon Deals – You could find this over the Internet, there are companies that coupon online resources are their business, they are partners with some hotels, airline companies and travel agents. With this you could save more for airfare accommodations and tours when you take advantage with these deals.
  • Subscribe For Updates and Newsletters– Frequently visit the airline websites and surely you can get a very nice deal, or you can subscribe them from facebook, twitters and the like.
  • Try To Look For Packages– Do not book your flight individually, inasmuch as you can, reserve your flight together so you can avail of all inclusive group packages.
  • Read-up– so you will know if there are airlines that have promos with the airfare, you can also gain access with coupon deals and the like.
  • Don’t Travel During Peak Season– If you really want to get lesser expenses with the airfare and hotel accommodation, travel during off peak seasons. Because when you go with the crowd the higher the expenses you will get from airline to hotel expenses, of course travelers unwind during summer or holidays and airfare, hotel accommodations are more likely grabbing these chances for higher income.

Best Spot For Bonding and Romantic Date

There are many pergolas I have seen in the movie, and I so love all the designs they have shown. One of them that I was really mesmerized with was the one in the twilight wherein the lead characters dance so slowly during their prom. On the other hand, maybe it would be great if I would hire someone to install a gazebo or pergola in our front yard. It would be our best spot for bonding moment in the afternoon, wherein my kids and I could talk anything or reading together or playing board games. Who knows my husband would also take my hand and dance with me there, it is also the best spot for romantic date.

The Long Cut Road

The other day, we went to the newly open grocery store to experience their great service and discounts. It was raining outside at that time and when we went out, there were no taxis available, the lady in-charge has to call somebody just to hail a taxi outside the compound. A taxi arrived then for us, the traffic was heavy at that time so the driver went detour. I didn’t expect that the road he took was so far, he said that the main road had a heavy traffic and it would take us too long if we take that road so I’ll just said yes with his suggestion to take the other road. I supposed to pay him like a hundred and plus but because we took the long cut, the meter charge me a 200 bucks, the same fare from our place going to where Mj’s training venue.

Traveling and Learning The Culture

When traveling, the travelers have the opportunity to share their own culture and learn about from the place they went to. I personally want to know how does other country or what their culture is, I could only share mine like putting the hand of the elder in the forehead, that’s the sign of respect, calling the older siblings Ate and Kuya and using the po and opo when they answer their parents or to the elders, are a sign of respect as well. The best culture that we have is our great accommodation when guests arrived in our home that even we don’t have much food in the table or the foods were just enough for us, we still invite the guests to eat with us. My husband is a foreigner and I am so excited what culture he had in his place, I just can’t wait to see or experience it. I hope soon my kids and I will experience and eventually learn from it.
