Beautifully Cheap European Vacations




The European hotspots are consistently busy and typically not very affordable, so let’s skip Barcelona, Marseille and the other trendy destinations. If you want to save big on your summer holiday(s), try visiting one of these cheaper destinations for all the bang with half the buck.


     Sure Malta isn’t as cheap as you may wish, but it’s still much more affordable than hotspots like Lisbon or Sorrento. Head to Sliema for a hip beach town filled with designer shops and trendy cafes that won’t totally break your budget. The nightlife is wild and fun and the beaches are gorgeous.  


      Obviously, major beach cities like Lisbon will break your budget wide open, but Portugal has plenty of affordable alternatives. Try Algarve, just down the road from popular Lisbon but nearly half the cost. Enjoy over 300 sunny days a year, warm waters and some of the best surf on the Atlantic coast. This small beach region is a gem and should be visited even if only for a few days. 


     The ancient Mediterranean beach city of Paphos in Cyprus is the perfect beach destination. Enjoy ancient ruins of the Greco-Roman empires while basking in the warm sun. The city comes alive in the warm summer months and visitors will enjoy the variety of restaurants, castles, and monasteries the old town region has to offer.


     Greece is the Mecca of Mediterranean beaches and many are extremely expensive, so let’s find an affordable one. Try Cephalonia, a small island that rivals Crete for cheapness. Get the most out of your European beach vacation at this Greek island and have the best trip possible.


     OK, hear me out; maybe try a beach destination that isn’t on the ocean. Head to the resort town of Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and save huge on your summer vacation. The Black Sea isn’t salty and has very mild waves; so expect a lake type of vibe with a party atmosphere. The nightlife here gets rowdy and the bars along the beach stay open late.


     No longer a well-kept secret, Croatia is now a hotspot for vacationing Europeans. Instead of hitting the hot islands or capital city, try Porec for your budget summer vacation in style. The city is a throwback with rustic architecture and an old town that features cobblestone streets.   The water and beaches are great and the weather couldn’t be better.


     Everyone wants to visit the Amalfi Coast in Italy, but few of us can afford such a luxurious trip. Instead try to visit the Puglia region, which is much less crowded and offers some really great deals. Check out the resort town of Otranto, which features huge rock pools and rustic beaches. The stone buildings will bring you back in time and the cheap prices will bring you back.

Avoiding Foreign Illness When Traveling




 Traveling is a pleasure, but getting sick on your trip can be a bummer. You work so hard to take time off from your job and you spent so much money on this life-changing vacation… so the last thing you want is to spend your trip lying in a hotel bed, sleeping in a wastebasket. You want to explore, which means you need to stay healthy and virus-free.

Most people don’t know that there are several things you can do that can cut down on the chances of getting sick when you’re on vacation. Our team of health experts decided to pass along four easy tips that are sure to keep you having fun by not getting sick the next time you travel.


     Always drinking bottled water will ensure that your water is never full of harmful bacteria and will help you avoid the nasty effects that drinking contaminated water can have on your body. If a bottle of water is opened before you sit down at a restaurant then don’t drink it because there is a good chance that they just filled it up at the tap, kindly ask for a new bottle for your meal even if it costs a little bit more money it is always worth it.

Staying healthy is worth the extra bit of money every time, because if you catch something like Montezuma’s revenge then there is no amount of money you wouldn’t pay to get rid of that awful sickness.


If you think you might have trouble finding bottled water on your trip then be sure to pack iodine pills beforehand. All you have to do is throw a pill into the water you want to drink and then voila it is good to go. There are also a lot of great options for water purifiers that are great options for on the go.

Check the internet and find a convenient option that works best for you and use it to make sure you are drinking clean water. If you haven’t figured it out by now, clean water is very important to stay healthy. 


     You don’t win friends with salad when you’re traveling. Raw vegetables are usually washed with tap water which can make you very sick. You can be drinking all the clean water in the world, but once you eat some raw vegetables that have been rinsed in contaminated water then you can kiss all your hard work goodbye. Always eat cooked vegetables to avoid getting that contaminated water in your mouth.


Your doctor will gladly write you a prescription for an antibiotic for you to use when you get sick. Pick up some prescription antibiotics before you head out on your trip just in case you do get caught with one of these awful illnesses so that you can take the appropriate actions to help recover and get back to enjoying your awesome trip.

Don’t Make These Mistakes In Vegas




 Sin City is consistently in the top five most-visited cities in America every year – 2019 is no different. But, as much as Vegas is all about forgetting the rules and letting loose, don’t be negligent. There are still some basic concepts you should not partake in while enjoying Vegas. 


     A huge aspect of having a great time in Las Vegas is simply hanging out by the pool. Virtually every hotel pool has a swim-up bar these days. But let’s not forget, Las Vegas is literally in the desert. The heat can be straight-up brutal in the summer. So don’t make the mistake of not applying sunscreen! Have the time of your life in Vegas isn’t worth getting skin cancer.


     Vegas may seem like the kind of place where rules go out the window, but one rule that is still very much in effect… Vegas is still very much “21 & older.” Various law enforcement agencies such as the Gaming Commission are looking for any reason to bust a hotel or casino breaking the rules. If you’re under 21, you can still enjoy the city, but don’t bother trying to sneak into clubs with that fake ID your brother crafted. 


     As you can imagine, Vegas is overflowing with working people of the hospitality game. Bartenders, waiters, bellhops, valet drivers… the list goes on and on. These people work very hard to provide a proper Vegas experience, so they’re the last people you want to offend by not giving a good tip. Honestly, we shouldn’t even have to tell you this one. Tip your staff!


     A lot of people probably assume prostitution is legal in a place like Las Vegas. Well, news flash, it isn’t! Regardless of how much you may get bombarded with escort cards while walking down the strip, prostitution is still very much illegal in Las Vegas. So don’t take the risk just because you’re letting your hair down. If you were to get caught, you could face some serious fines and possibly even jail time. Don’t risk it!


      While most places will, of course, take credit cards, cash still comes in very hand in Las Vegas. But do your best to bring plenty of cash with you or find your bank’s local branch in the city because the ATM fees are just plain ridiculous. You could pay anywhere for $5 to $10!


     No matter how much you flail your arms or scream at passing cab drivers, they will not pull over. Probably because it’s actually illegal! There are number pick up and drop off areas all over the city, and taxi cab passengers must be picked up and dropped off at these locations. Similarly, Uber and Lyft will have a drop-off and pick up zone as well. If you’re not sure how it all works, the concierge at your hotel will be more than happy to call one for you.
