Summer travels are in full swing this peak season at this time of the year. Some of these countries are cheaper destinations because of low currency, lack of tourism or drop in the local market.
I would never write a post to revel the economic struggles of the country, but by visiting these places, you will enjoy low prices and help the local businesses too.
Here are the cheapest places to visit:

My bucket list consists of many big and small adventures along the way. The beaches, sand and sunsets with my hunny are my favorite things to do together. A beach girl at heart. It is easy to get so caught up in making a living, that you never make a life. I have to remind my husband of that a lot. We love to gaze at the sunsets together and travel as often as we can. Whether it be a last minute road trip, a Caribbean cruise or fly somewhere for vacation .
I am also on a journey to healthy living with my husband. We are committed to living healthy as we age together. I am on a path to share with you about learning to have self love to take care of yourself daily. It starts with you and loving yourself enough to make good choices for your everyday life. It is a life style, not the next big weight loss fad that is trending, but an everyday healthy lifestyle.
Join me on my journey to living my bucket list adventures!

A cruise to the Bahamas had been on my bucket list for awhile. So, on April 16, 2017, me and my hubs went on the Carnival Liberty Cruise Ship for the first time on our much needed vacation .
The room we purchased was one with a balcony that we was recommended by a friend. It was so worth it to upgrade to a balcony for an extra $300. I highly recommend it too. You have the balcony for privacy to sit to view the beautiful blue ocean in peace and quiet and to take it all in. It was so relaxing and just being there with my husband for some needed relaxation is just what we needed to escape life for a couple of days together. There no wifi out in the middle of the ocean unless you purchase a international wifi package between the United States waters and the Bahamas. It was so nice to us to unplug from the cellphones.
We ported at Bahamas the next morning. There are many beaches to visit, and things to do and visit too, but we stayed downtown for the day. We had a fun day off the ship with a carriage ride around downtown of Nassau was perfect for sight seeing with my hubs. We bought my 25th year anniversary ring at the International Diamond store there. It’s a souvenir that I will cherish forever. At the Hard Rock Cafe, we ate lunch. It was time to board the Liberty ship again, we spent all day in downtown area.
Dinner time on the ship has so many choices to choose from from a burger stand, to a buffet line for fine dining. We ended up trying all them before we left the ship.
There is a big theatre screen on the upper deck, it was relaxing to watch a movie at night and to be able to stare up at the stars together too. So romantic LOL. We loved it.
We shopped on board in the gift shops, went to an 80’s concert. We are 80’s kids that we grew up that era, so we loved it. Overall the cruise is just what we needed and encourage anyone to cruise once and see if it’s for you. Some do get sea sick, so pack some dramamine, just in case you need it. The ship did sway some and we had to adjust to it. Thankfully, we didn’t get sea sick.
It was an awesome cruise! I am now addicted to cruising. 🛳❤️
Beautiful snowy Arizona mountains is so majestic! There is just something about the white snow ascending on the mountain tops. I was able to catch this epic picture while driving through on route highway 66 on February 16, 2019. On our roadtrip to California.
I am usually a beach girl, but these mountains really took my breath away. I am not one for the winter season, actually I hate winter. I don’t like being in the house all season long freezing. I am more of a Spring and Fall kinda gal.
