My “go-to” summer time planning.

Summer break is upon us and like any parent with kids at school we’re planning for affordable trips once school is over. It was easy to plan for little ones since either way they’re going to like it. Unfortunately as kids grow up to teenagers then what I think as fun might not be the case anymore. For instance I read up on WWOOFing. Its a cheap way to have lodging at a farm in exchange for a few hours of helping out at the farm. I thought it would be fun trying out farming for a few days, I’m sure my daughter and I could learn something new. Well she didn’t think so…

Therefore, here I am looking for a plan B which would be expensive so I figured since I’m going for broke, might as well do something we both have never done, which is be on a cruise. Therefore, I summed up the courage to call the agent and in no time my wallet was feeling empty. A few more paperwork and we’re set. Now lodging and transportation after the trip is planned for. Airbnb for lodging and experiences is a great way to explore while transportation with rental car has been my go-to.
