My husband and I agreed that we should try to put aside a savings that we could use for our travel next year, yes, next year. With the expenses we incurred last year with our travels, we came to a decision that this year's family travel would just be local road trips and no major ones. The purpose of leisure traveling is to enjoy a break from your hectic schedule at work and at home and it won't be enjoyable if you will travel using a credit. So it is a smarter choice if you save for it and then you enjoy your vacation without thinking of debts to pay for afterwards. One of our long term goals is to buy us a camper that we can use in long road trips. We are starting to browse some of the Campervans for Sale online. Hopefully, we would be able to realized this long term goal.
Tasman Valley - Aoraki Mount Cook
New Zealand is one place that hubby and I considered moving in after he retired from the Navy. When he was still in the service and preparing to retire, he had a contact who was looking for someone to work in New Zealand so my husband applied for it. He did qualified but our kids was the big factor why we did not push through our plans. They were not comfortable moving away from our family back here in WV. After our major move from overseas back to the United States, i-t kind of dented their emotion about moving from one place to another. And for that reason, I don't think we will be able to easily move out from here.
But who knows what our future hold for us right? I mean, if there's a need, we will have to go wherever our lives would have a comfortable living.
