3 Ways To Cut Costs On Your Vacation

Vacations are goals in life. Everything we do points toward the things that we look forward to doing, and vacations are right up there in the list of goals for us all. Scaling the Rockies, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, skiing the Alps: goals galore! The problem is, we all have grand ideas for our vacations, with not so grand wallets to go with them. Getting the most from your vacation in terms of experience is vitally important. Getting the most for your cash? Well, that’s just essential!

Travel costs are spiraling upward at the moment, with vacation companies upping their prices and things like war and terrorism spoiling the tourism industry. The thing is, planning a vacation isn’t just as simple at throwing a dart at a map and choosing to get on a plane. You need to shop around for the best deals and learn where you can cut corners without cutting on quality of your vacation. Don’t be left out of pocket and learning the hard way why you’re supposed to balance your vacation budget before you go. We’ve got three amazing ways that you can cut your vacation costs, without losing the quality of the destination that you choose!

Transport. A road trip can provide an amazing way to see many different places at a very low cost. You could choose to get yourself a Jeep and head out toward the sunset, or you could check out used motorcycles available for you to buy instead. Two wheels, the open road and only what you need with you can provide you a freedom that may not have been otherwise possible. You can also cut down on your vacation transport by booking flights very far in advance – flight timetables and tickets are released 330 days in advance.

Shopping. Vacation shopping is one of the best bits – it means that the vacation you’ve booked is finally around the corner. If you buy all your necessities early and before you go out to your destination, you can save huge amounts of cash. Holiday resorts are often ready to charge you far more for sunscreen!


Accommodation. The birth of Airbnb has been a revelation to holiday makers, as the rental of an entire home or condo is so much cheaper and a far better experience than being stuffed together in a hotel room with the housekeeping coming in and out to clean. You can save money by doing a shop locally and self-catering. The hotel experience is nice, sure, but it’s not going to beat the extra cash in your wallet.


Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and not stressful. If you ensure that you can stretch your budget properly when you book one, you will have a far nicer time away from home. Don’t just book the first vacation offer that you find, when there are hundreds of thousands of choices out there ready for you to look at. Take your time, save your pennies and go on the vacation of a lifetime!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
