You may have seen late last week that Forbes published its billionaires list for 2017. It’s no surprise that Bill Gates ranks #1, and it’s nice to know too that he allocates a substantial amount of his wealth towards philanthropic causes, including the Gates Foundation. In a world where money talks, it’s hard not to dream of what could be. What would you do with that kind of money?
Everyone loves a good deal. That’s why I love using websites like Groupon, WagJag, TravelZoo and others to find bargains that make my dollar go a little further! While you do have to scrounge through and assess if some offers are actually deals, others are just no brainers! Even ‘big box e-stores’ like Amazon really surprise me sometimes with the value they offer.
Some of you may have seen the post I wrote during my car shopping hunt, but I’m happy to say that on February 25, 2017 I bought my ‘new’ [pre-owned] car and that the search for the right fit was over. I had finally found the 2014 Ford Focus Titanium I wanted and this time, I snatched it up quick!

Most people have heard of or seen pictures of the Ice Hotel in Quebec, but few relish in the idea of staying there to freeze your tuchas off for a night. I have always thought it was something quite unique and different, and although I am not a fan of Old Man Winter’s ‘gifts of nature’, I have always wanted to see the famous Ice Hotel and sculptures inside. I had googled how much it would cost to stay there last fall and was crushed to see that prices start from about $450+ per person! Needless to say, when I say a deal for two for $375 on Groupon this past December, I snatched it up quick!
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
