Ten A List of Ten ....Travel ?

The theory if you break down big projects into bite size lists, bits, or compartments you will be able to tackle the entire larger project in no time.

So here is a list of ten things I need to do or admit to in order to complete a travel project.

Travel Costs...all of them ?

When I was booking for a trip recently I was Wow'd by the Savings I thought I was making.

Lo and Behold I can not budget for the life of me. Seriously, I forgot about parking garages costing money and that is actual cash not just the surcharge for using a credit card.

Cinco de Mayo, Mom's Day, Memorial Day - Holiday Travel in May

It is finally May and the weather is finally telling everyone it is SUMMERTIME. In the past May signified for me three things 1) Plan my Christmas Holiday Vacation 2) Get More Sunscreen 3) Go to Oklahoma.

Now, what about celebrating Cinco de Mayo, getting together for Mother's Day and planning the three days of Memorial Day weekend? Nope I did that last November. I am serious about planning travel six months in advance. 

But not you! You are looking at the Calendar and going Payday is Friday and I am going to try all the Tequila and learn how to Dance the Merengue! Good for is how you can do exactly that!
If you are in Chicago, this Friday head over to Duet Dance Studio for you own Dance party complete with Salsa! If you are in my patch of OZ head over to Myth Dayclub for Tequila Tacos on the Patio on Saturday. Finally on Sunday Go To The Symphony at Church  it starts at 3pm and totally worth it to hear some piano.

But what about Mom's Day, well this year do the #ComeVisitMe with a great trip to Los Altos
Okay Mom's Day is important event that you can have fun Running in Barrington ! This 5K is one of several running events and worthwhile for great causes too. Plus CakePops. 
If you are in Miami take the SouthBeach Lady Yacht  

If you really like running you can run in the Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras Memorial Day Weekend 
You could get real high in Denver for the DAY OF ROCK Denver Day of Rock is an iconic music festival benefiting the work of Amp the Cause. This free event features five stages of live music along Denver’s 16th Street Mall on Memorial Day weekend. Denver Day of Rock unites the community through music and family friendly entertainment while also raising funds to help Amp the Cause continue to support non-profits in our community. By making a donation at the event, you will join Amp the Cause in our efforts to build a stronger, more caring community!
