It is hilarious that I am spending thousands of dollars on this vacation and quibbling with myself about how many $10 cocktails I can afford
My general travel philosophy, honed after years of dragging my guitar from convention to convention, is that you get one “real meal” per day, “real” being defined as “a hot meal with more than one food item included, maybe even served on a non-disposable plate.”
After reading all of your advice (both for and against) renters insurance, I ended up purchasing the Geico plan. I mean, it took me until last Saturday to finally push go on that, but I did it.
On Sunday night, I got an email from United Airlines to let me know that my Tuesday evening flight to Newark had pre-emptively been canceled due to Blizzardy Storm Juno.
I’m going on vacation from January 31-February 8 (the JoCo Cruise) and I’m estimating I’ll miss out on at least $1,000 in income unless I try to write a bunch of it in advance.
I have been lucky enough to work in jobs where I am given paid time off, but I usually don’t take it. The big chunk of free time hanging over my head makes me nervous, as if I’ll spend it incorrectly, or I won’t have the maximum amount of fun and relaxation that I should for something as exciting and generous as free time off.
I am, perhaps to my own detriment, a person who doesn’t complain very often.
I don’t like any of what I see on Hipmunk. I want a flight that leaves DCA at 9 a.m. and arrives in FLL at noon and doesn’t cost four hundred dollars.
