Maybe it's because I'm in grad school right now, but does it seem like lots of bloggers take big, fancy trips every couple of months or so? It feels like I read about someone going to Spain, Paris, Disney World, or Las Vegas every week! I'm always excited for people, but I'll be honest and say I get a teency bit jealous sometimes.

Being on a tight budget can be hard, but this weekend Noah and I went to see my sister in Williamsburg. This was nice because we had a place to stay for free and I could catch up with my sister about the current semester of graduate school.

Getting out of your habits can be a great way to relax and feel spontaneous. Explore a new town, pick out one new place to eat that fits your budget, and try to fit in as many outdoor [read: free] experiences as possible.

Here are some ideas for places you can visit:

  • Walk through a local neighborhood park
  • Go to your local SPCA and take some dogs on a walk
  • Visit a National Park
  • If you live near a college, walk the campus
  • Visit a nearby river, lake, or estuary and have a picnic
