Travel the only thing you can spend money on that will make you richer. So how do you travel when money is tight? Before getting married, I had a money envelope where I would set aside $50.00-$100.00 per check specifically for travel goals. I started the habit when the Mr. decided he wanted to celebrate his 30th birthday in Germany. Saving for that trip got me into the habit of making travel a priority. Germany was actually our first time traveling together….EVER. We stayed there a few days and then road tripped our way to Prague, in the Czech Republic with his best friends where we rang in his 30th birthday! Wow, that seems like so long ago. After that, I kept saving so that when it was time for another trip, I already had money saved. When we got married, I stopped saving for travel and put that money toward saving for a wedding. I guess I never picked back up the habit of saving for travel. That ends now!
The goal is to travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. According to a survey from by the U.S. Travel Association’s Project Time Off, 55% of Americans did not take all of their vacation days leaving approximately 658 million unused vacation days on the table. Taking time for yourself is a very important form of self-care which is why I have created this list of vacation ideas that every millennial woman should strive to take this year. As you sit in cubicle nation or look out of your office window and picture yourself on a sandy beach with a frose’ in hand, just think that this can all be a reality. Even you don’t get a lot of vacation time (raise your hand if you have been there) you can monopolize on 3 day holiday weekends to make your days stretch.
