What a thrill! I had the honor today to participate in a discusion on NPR's On Point with Tom Ashbrook. The show focused on summer travel on a shoestring, which I was happy to talk about after this week's Shoestring Living column Summer Travel on the Cheap discussed the exact same thing. Thanks so much to the team at On Point for a wonderful experience.
Even when budgets are tight, it's so important to find ways to get out of the day-to-day and to reconnect with our loved ones. Dream vacations may have to wait a few more years for us, but we still plan to take some fun day trips here and there, as well as our annual week in North Carolina at Lake Gaston with family. While raising young kids is the most rewarding job on Earth, it's the most exausting, too. Listen to the show in the "Past Shows" section, read my article and peruse the comments on the On Point site for some great tips on getting away, one way or another, this summer.
