Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain

My First Piggy Bank Purchase!

No, I didn't buy countries in Asia, as it may look in the picture! LOL, but I do plan to visit them. Like I've mentioned, I've booked my first piggy bank vacation! I've traveled before, but this will be the first time I've traveled with money I've saved (and am saving) off of my everyday bills and my side job. This is half paid for now, and I'm hoping to have the rest paid by the end of July.

The trip is in Sept. 2010 and is starting in Hong Kong, with stops in Taiwan, Shanghai, Japan, South Korea, and ending in Beijing!

We got such a great deal on this trip! (of course, I wouldn't have it any other way!). It is a 13 night cruise, which we booked through Royal Caribbean. We took advantage of their Best Price Guarantee and got the inside room for $1,000.00 CAD per person. We also booked our flights through a seat sale on Continental, and also got these for $1,000.00 per person. $2,000.00 for two weeks in Asia from Eastern Canada is amazing! We normally pay about $1200 each for one week in Cuba, so this is a great deal. We'll be staying a few extra nights in Beijing, for a total of 17 nights vacation. The hotel rooms were booked during an sale for $60.00 CAD per night at a well known hotel chain! All meals are included on the ship, the only extras will be liquor, day trips & transfers and of course spending money! :) I cannot wait for this trip!
