Are you ready for a Travel Tips Thursday post? One of my favorite tips involves my overall style of travel: which is laid-back and typically budget-friendly.
This goes without saying, but we all know five star resorts are absolute heaven. The amenities, the beautiful grounds, the service, the food, who wouldn’t want to travel to these kinds of resorts all the time? I’m still waiting to win the lottery, but until then, that kind of travel is not always in the cards. For me, I have decided that a few vacations each year is much more important than to live it up for one week in a posh resort.
The perfect alternative for us is renting a condo when we travel. You’d be surprised but most condos include all of the standard amenities of a typical hotel, from a pool to an exercise room, and the grounds of the “resort” are usually well landscaped. My favorite part of renting a condo is having a kitchen to cook breakfast or dinner, so we can try to save a little money on food expenses. While in Kona we stayed in a condo that had this view:
With a view like that, who wouldn’t want to wake up and eat breakfast out on the lanai every single day?
What about you? Where do you usually stay on vacation?
