One thing I love to do Is travel, but I a little short of ready cash most of the time, so I worked out a way of being able to afford to travel when I was short of money. Of course this involves borrowing the money, and paying interest, but if I want to travel and I’m short of cash, I don’t really have any options.
Was easy short-term cash is to go to a payday loan company, and I recently found a very good one that is probably the best I’ve come across – and I have used payday loan companies all over the place, let me tell you. Some of them are great, some of them are completely obnoxious, and some you want to avoid. The latter is not the case with this company, called payday loan pussy – yes, you have to like the name don’t you?
Anyway to cut a long story short, I have used these guys three times now have the last few months to borrow money to make trips when I was short of cash, and I have been very good each time. It’s a pretty simple process – you go along to them, prove you have a full-time job and can expect a steady pay packet, then they will loan you a sum of money to be be repaid at the next time you get paid. It doesn’t get any simpler than that – does it?
Some people shy away from borrowing money from payday loan companies, will prefer to use bricks and mortar one, but I’ve been very pleased so far – they only seem to operate online, and like many businesses, including the travel business – it doesn’t surprise me to see payday loan companies moving to the online space. The last trip I made, was to Japan, with money borrowed from payday loan pussy in my pocket. Honestly if you think you might be in the market for any cash loans in the short term future – check these guys out! They certainly make my travel plans workout.

So you love going to exotic Christmas markets and buying unique gifts for friends and family. But what you don’t love is getting there. It truly can be a hassle to drive into an urban area and then find parking. Well your solution might be to go all the way to Europe and then take a river cruise.
There are cruises that specialize in taking you to cities where there are fabulous German-style Christmas markets. Of course you do have to plan ahead and book your cruise early to make sure that you will get to the right Christmas market. You’ll love the authentic German Christmas ornaments and artisan-crafted gifts. When you want to relax there’s always German beer to help you.
Most German market river cruises that I’ve found are about 5 days long, so they fit nicely into a larger European vacation. You actually get to rest a bit and do some great shopping. I’m seriously considering a cruise that begins in Nuremburg, which hosts one of the oldest German markets. It then continues on to Bamberg, Wurzberg, and Wertheim-Miltenberg. You get off the boat in Frankfurt.
I am really looking forward to the Nuremburg Christmas Market. It’s also called the Little Town from Wood and Cloth. That’s because the fair is made up of almost 200 wooden stalls that are covered in red and white cloth. Many of these merchants sell traditional Christmas ornaments, angels for your Christmas tree, candles and kids’ toys. You’ll also be able to buy tasty gingerbread. For a hearty snack give the German sausages a try.
The market itself is draped in beautiful decorations. There is an annual competition between all of the stall owners. The city of Nuremburg gives prizes to the most beautiful stalls. Because of the stunning scenery many European Christmas specials use the Nuremberg market as their setting. So this is one that you’ll definitely want to include in your river cruise.

As an outdoors kinda person, I enjoy using my spare time to get a look of hiking in. When it comes to vacations, I combine both my love of hiking and camping. It’s an easy way to indulge in a sport that I enjoy, whilst also enjoying a vacation that’s both budget friendly and driven by the experiences that can only come from camping in the great outdoors.
Luckily America is criss-crossed with awesome campgrounds, as well as lots of fantastic hiking trails. Equally, Europe also has a lot to offer, another favorite destination of mine if the chance arises. Over and above the cost of the flights, camping in and around Europe is extremely budget friendly, hence I try and get in at least one overseas hiking/camping vacation a year.
That said, if I camp overseas I tend to use a different kit altogether. As a means of keeping costs down, my ‘overseas kit’ consist of whatever I can pack into one rucksack. Mind it’s the kind of rucksack designed for hiking/walking and camping, and there’s an awful lot of room. Still, an awful lot of room also equals a lot of potential weight so that’s why my overseas camping and hiking kit is made up of the lightest gear I can find.
Should you give it a go? As a vacation idea it’s simply awesome. Camping is incredibly cheap, and, providing you love being outdoors, and sharing experiences with those that you’ll meet along your way, you’ll not go far wrong. The world is covered in beautiful locations, and campground, wherever they are in the world, tend to be located in the best spots.

Want to pamper yourself? Feel as though you’ve gone through a dark tunnel,. Come out the other side and now it’s time to focus on you, and no one else but you? Then why not take yourself off to a spa resort? America is covered with wonderful spa hotels, and there’s so many to choose from, the hardest part s deciding on which one will best suit your needs.
A popular spa ‘retreat’ idea is one that combines weight loss with health and well being, more so since the arrival of The Biggest Loser on our screens. Jillian Michaels seems to have motivated more than the few that have appeared in the series, and more and more people are choosing a spa resort that embraces the fact that they need, or want, help.
We’ve all heard of the ones that allow you to be pampered with body massages, facials and things like reflexology and spiritual awareness. Spa resorts that focus on weight loss are (happily) becoming more and more available to the general public. Plus they’re as affordable as the usual suspects.
Of course different ones focus on different methods of weight loss. Some concentrate on motivating you emotionally and mentally, others focus of the physical side – hiking, exercise. Then again some just go the whole hog, and get you started on the healthy diet/healthy lifestyle. In a sense this kind of spa resort is more like a long life coaching seminar, but they’re generally successful, and may be just what you need.

Bought the wedding rings? Chosen the venue, the guest, who’s doing what, why and when? Then now it’s time to look at where you’re going on honeymoon. Most couples do put as much thought into their honeymoon as they do their wedding but it doesn’t hurt to look around for inspiration.
The wedding itself always seems to cost the Earth, and that’s without the little things..such as the licence, the hair and makeup – and don’t get me started on how much you’ll pay out for a pair of diamond encrusted rings (like these). The aforementioned are all good reasons to figure out where you want to go, and for how long, before you out-price yourselves because some of the other stuff crept up on you and now you’re running out of money.
For those interested, there are quite a few great ideas that should kick-start your honeymoon plans in plenty of time for you to book and pay for everything..before the money pit dries up:
a cruise – popular, can be done on a budget
deserted island – can be expensive but starting to trend
road trip – fun, budget friendly
winter destination – different, great for the sporty
cabin rental – another than can be done on a budget, cosy, indulgent
boutique hotels – decadent, fashionable
spa break – ultimate in luxury, ideal for those that love to be pampered
inter-rail – popular with the young and active
adventure – great for the thrill seekers and daredevils
African safari – very popular, one-in-a-lifetime vacation
As you can see, there are quite a few ideas on the table, and of course there are more in between. What you need to do is to look at your options, figure out your budget, and start compiling lists of viable destinations. Whether you plan for a trip of a lifetime or a short weekend break, so long as you plan it around what you both enjoy, and being together, you won’t go far wrong.
