I love to travel!!! It was to be my career. I was a travel agent in my younger days…before the internet made planning the dream vacation so easy. Because of my love, I’ve tried to introduce my girls to destinations within my budget as a single mom. It isn’t easy! We’ve traveled to upper Michigan; Mackinaw Island with it’s horse-drawn carriages and the beautiful Grand Hotel, Disney World twice (The first time was the 1st year Animal Kingdom opened!), Cedar Point (the best coaster park in the world!), a Carnival Cruise to the Caribbean, Pittsburgh PA for Courtney 16th Birthday, Las Vegas for Lindsay 21st Birthday and more. But there is so much more to explore!
Since leaving the industry I, as many of you, found booking vacations on line to be pretty easy but sometimes confusing. There are so many website to search and how do you know you are getting the best deal?

Kayak compares all airlines prices including flexible travel dates and secondary airports. Instead of searching site to site Kayak does it for you in one place! You can search hotels, car rentals, vacation deals and more. There are also management tools that will prompt search pushes to your email allowing you to monitor a specific search as well as an App for your smartphone. Kayak has been a tool I use when booking any vacation or flight! A Taboo Tip that will save you lots of time and money! Do you have a travel tool you use?
