“Travel is certainly more than seeing the sights; it is a change that goes on deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”   –  Miriam Beard

I attended a graduation this evening which led me to realize school is almost finished for this part of the year and that means summer vacations.

And given the economy, you might be wondering what you can possibly afford to do and still enjoy the season.  Well, there are actually a lot more things than you might imagine.  Budget travel has come a long way since the roadside motel and “staycations” have become a popular way to take time off in your very own neck of the woods.

Whether you’re looking for a fun family overnight trip or something interesting to do closer to home, the following link to an article titled “Budget Vacations” will give you some pretty great low-cost/no cost vacation ideas that will be sure to make your summer sizzle.

Have a great summer and don’t forget the sunscreen!


About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
