New York 2017 Trip Review

Two weeks ago, my partner and I had the privilege of travelling to the Big Apple. And let me tell you, we had a great time. And even better, we stayed under the budget. #Winning!

Of course, as always, the trip has been planned months before it even happened – six months to be exact. By planning ahead, we had a lot of time in our hands to sort out our options when it comes to our expenses – airfare, hotels, places to visit, etc., which then saved us money. Needless to say, I am already planning our trips for next year. You should give it a try, too.

If you can afford to pay a health insurance, and you don’t have one, you will be fined. As of 2016, the fine is $695 (if you haven’t had a health insurance in the entire year) or 2.5% of your household income, whichever is higher.

How to Get Cheap Flights Online

book-cheap-flightsTravel is essential. I cannot emphasize it enough. As I’ve said in the past, traveling rejuvenates your body and soul from your everyday routine a.k.a. WORK. This is so true. I am speaking from experience. Every time I come back from vacation, I feel refreshed. If it’s at all possible, one should travel at least once a year. If I could travel more than that, I totally would.

To get you into the vacation planning mode, let me share with you my two most favorite websites where I buy cheap tickets.
