If the budget and interest exists, travel to somewhere that is not home can happen whenever we'd like it to. That might involve a spur of the moment decision, or a definite plan that covers a good part of the upcoming year.
That raises the question: where to go to find great deals and ideas to stimulate and satisfy your wanderlust? A reader asked me for suggestions, especially for last-minute sales. I haven't used all the sources listed but they appear to be legitimate as I researched choices online. Most have a section for last minute deals and specials:
Cheap Tickets Deals of the Week
AAA last minute travel (Type www.travel.aaa.com to be directed to the office that serves your state or city)
Costco Travel (members only)
Last Minute Travel
Which ones have I overlooked? Do you have any suggestions for last minute or deeply discounted travel deals? Are there any services you'd recommend someone not use based on personal experience?
Postscript: All this talk of travel reminds me that Betty and I are beginning to make plans to take an RV trip in late summer-early fall to visit family in Kansas and Tennessee. We will also explore the Smoky Mountains and travel through eight states that we have yet to visit in our motorhome travels.
Seven weeks, about 4,000 miles, and more photos and memories than we can count await us. Sounds like a blast!
If that weren't enough we leave for an Alaskan Cruise in a few weeks - our way to celebrate our 40th anniversary!
Lastly, the folks at NeoMam Studios sent me an infographic on packing tips. Seems a fitting addition to a post on travel sites: NeoMam packing tips graphic.
