The Morning Shave
50 States, 50 Landmarks. – The next time you’re traveling through the US, make a point to check out these fabulous landmarks. I’ve already hit quite a few, including The Ryman Auditorium in my new home state of Tennessee.
How to Take Your Own Passport Photo. – This sounds like a good DIY way to save money on getting your passport. However, so many things can go wrong that I don’t believe it is worth it. Your local CVS will take the photo for around $10 with this coupon. They’ll make sure it adheres to all of the requirements so your application will process smoothly. The last thing you want to do is take your own photo, submit everything, and then have your application declined because the photo wasn’t right.
I “Broke” My Family On Spring Break! – I can be guilty of planning too much within a short timeframe as well. But, what I’ve come to learn about traveling with rewards is that you can always come back to see things you might have missed. There’s no longer a need to cram so much into one day because you spent more on this vacation than your monthly mortgage payment.
Allegiant Takes First Step Toward International Service with Mexico Application. – Allegiant wouldn’t be my first choice to fly someplace, but more competition is always good. The same thing is happening in Hawaii with Southwest. Many travelers don’t like flying Southwest, but other carriers are offering deals to retain and attract passengers because consumers have more choices.
5 estate planning documents every family needs to protect their finances. – When you have a family, estate planning becomes even more important. It is even more when you factor in the risks of travel. Putting aside situations that could kill you, what happens if you are sick or incapacitated and can’t make decisions about your finances, health, or those of your children? Having the right documents in place ensures that your desires are followed and that your loved ones are taken care of.
