LIFE UPDATE

 Hi everyone. I don’t know why I felt like doing a life update on here, but I did, so here it is! I have had a lot of people ask me if I plan to stay in Vegas, and the answer is I have no idea haha. I moved here a year ago to finish my schooling at UNLV, and will probably wrap it up in a few semesters. I actually really like Vegas, I live away from all the craziness so maybe that’s why. I wouldn’t mind living here a little while longer after I finish school, but I do want to experience living other places. It also depends on where my job take me, so that part of my life is kind of a mystery, but for now I am going to be living in Vegas for a bit. I would eventually love to live somewhere near the beach. Dominic and I are on different pages with that though haha so we will have to find a happy medium.

I am currently doing summer classes that cram a whole semester of work into a 30 day class, so far it’s not too bad. That being said though it is taking up a lot of my time, like I sit in front of my computer for hours at a time doing homework, so probably no traveling this month. I keep reminding myself that it is going to be worth it, three classes done in 30 days is worth it. Also Dominic is doing his internship so we had to leave this month open so that we could both focus on our school responsibilities (adulting… eye roll).

We have a few more trips planned for the summer, one with family, a girl’s trip, and a boy’s trip! I would love to squeeze one more in, but we will have to see how we are doing on time left in the summer. If you have any suggestions on cool places to go that aren’t too far (we are short on time so anything over a 9 hour flight and includes jet lag isn’t in the picture) comment them below! I am always seeing people go places that I didn’t even know existed.

I can’t think of anything else that is new, but if you have any questions just drop them below! I am so glad I started this blog, it is so fun and I guess I never realized how much I enjoy writing. I hope you guys have a great day!

 

HOW I AFFORD TO TRAVEL!

I have had a lot of people ask me how I afford to travel, so here it is. Traveling is something I really enjoy, so I make it a priority when I am managing my money. There are tons of other things I could spend my money on but I choose I spend it on airfare and Airbnb’s across the world. Once I started making traveling a priority, I have had more funds to use for traveling because I am not spending it on other things. Doing this has been life changing and being able to see the world is something that I have always dreamed of. Dreams stay dreams if you don’t act on them. Once I realized that, I knew I had to make it a priority.

I also have two jobs. So it’s not like I am just sitting at my house all day and then going on trips whenever I feel like it. I work really hard to be able to keep up with my traveling habits, and it’s worth every second of it. I have to coordinate around work and school, that’s why most of my traveling is done during the summer months. I also am very fortunate to have a job that makes tips and having another job that I am able to do from home. So I put a certain amount of money into a different account each time I get paid (I treat it like a bill) that is strictly for traveling, so when the time comes the money is already there.

I also am not picky about where I go. I want to go sooo many places that I don’t really care what order the trips happen in. So when I decide I am going to book a trip I look at all the destinations and pick the one that is least expensive at that time, which saves me a lot of money. I also try to plan ahead so I have more time to prepare financially for the trip. Then after I have paid for the trip, I try to pay one of my bigger bills a month early, so that it is one less thing I have to pay the month of the trip. When the time of the trip comes I am always so glad I did it, it makes it so much less stressful.

I hope these tips I have help you if you are trying to travel, but not quite sure how to pay for it! Traveling is one my favorite things and I am trying to do lots of it while I am young, and old too haha. Do you guys have any tips you use when traveling? If so leave them below! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Xo
