People ask me how I take “so many” trips and I can never sum up how I save money to travel because I do so in MANY ways. Here it is, the no BS guide to EXACTLY what I do to save money to travel. Just this year I was able to visit Canada, Cuba, Costa Rica and travel around the US to Florida, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts & more. And yes, I feature some CRAZY ways I save money!
You can’t see all of Central Park in one day. I’m lying. Maybe you can. But you would have to be there from the time they open at 6 a.m. to the time they close at 1 a.m. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Want to go on an easy hike in Norwalk, Connecticut? I recommend you visit Cranbury Park. If you like tough hikes then this might be way too easy for you. Also, you can get married here, have a picnic, go mountain biking, and exercise with your dog. Ok, technically you don’t get married on the trails, but you can rent the mansion located on the premises.
I had never heard of Myasthenia Gravis until my friend, Maria Fernanda, was diagnosed with this chronic illness in 2013. We met in 2008 while we both worked towards obtaining degrees in translation and interpretation. We bonded as translation geeks over weekly happy hour sessions, through discussions about our terrible love lives, our mutual love of dogs and trips to the beach. As our lives began to lead us in different paths (I haven’t physically seen her since she said goodbye to me at an airport in 2012), we are still connected through WhatsApp and as traveling translators.
Day 1 – Mount Willard
After being in a car for five hours until we reached the White Mountains area of New Hampshire, all I wanted to do was to stretch my legs. And I decided to do it on a mountain over 2,000 ft. tall: Mt. Willard. It takes about an hour to hike 2,864 ft. and the summit has amazing views of Crawford Notch.
