When you think of a vacation dream destination, Alabama is probably doesn’t make the list. However, about 3 years ago my sisters and I planned a trip to Alabama with some excitement. The idea was that our sister stationed at the Navy base in Pensacola, FL could join us easily and we could all cross another state off our list to visit. We had mapped out tons of places we wanted to visit, but the trip fell through at the last minute.
Fast-forward to 2019, it was apparently a busy year for all of us as we approached Fall realizing we hadn’t even started to plan our annual Sister Trip. [More]
If you’re unfamiliar with Puerto Rico you’re probably missing out. This US territory in the Caribbean has pretty much everything you could want without all the commercialism of a typical tourist destination.
Moving there from the states isn’t difficult! They use the USD and everyone there is an English speaking citizen of America. As a bonus, you can use your license from whatever state you’re from without additional tests if you only plan to be there for 3 months or less. That means, just enough for us in the Northeast to escape the winter.
The more I fly, the more I realize many of the delays that airplanes have are preventable and in fact caused by people just being too self-centered. For example, when airlines started charging to check bags, there was an influx of people who started packing everything in a carry-on bag.
I don’t blame those people at all. Who wants to pay for their luggage to be rummaged though and lost? For the most part, it’s just all-around better if we are only packing what we need on a trip anyway. It means you’re less likely to lose things and you don’t have so much stuff to lug around from place to place. [More]
