Fantastic! Summer is on its way and it is VACATION time! Love it. June is usually the month that my husband and I take a much needed trip alone. Having 3 teenagers in various sports and activities does leave us with a limited budget for travel so we really search out the best deals in order to make our vacation fantastic! Are you planning a vacation or wanting to go away but think you cannot afford it well her some tips to finding some good deals. Via rail recently had 50% off their trips and I was able to book a multi trip for less than the tank of gas it would have taken me to get there! How fantastic is that cheaper and more relaxing?

A couple of years ago my husband and I went to Italy and honestly the best meal we had was down on the water where a litre of wine was $5.00 and our entire meal including 2 litres of wine totaled $30.00. Vacations do not need to cost a fortune and if you plan and do some investigating before you go then you can have a wonderful time, on a budget!
