My Top 5 Budget-Friendly Travel Destinations

My young friends that are reading my articles, if you have the opportunity to travel, by golly you gotta do it. Experiencing different cultures, a world outside your own, and having a different aspect of the place you live is important to growing up. Traveling doesn't have to be expensive, because I am here to help you out. Here are my 5 recommendations to anyone looking for a budget-friendly place to visit!

1. Montreal, Canada

My first pick is the French-influenced city of Montreal, Canada. If you're big into festivals, the arts, and even cuisine, this is a great option for those looking to see some new sights. The strong French cuisine, its amazing tapestry, and home to one of the world's biggest comedy and art festivals, why wouldn't you want to visit. With hotels starting around $75, it won't break the bank either.

2. Lima, Peru

If you're adventure-minded, consider Lima, the capital of Peru, as a possible option for travel this year! A lot of the tours you can take have English-speaking guides and a lot of them happen to be free as well. Free museums, some awesome architectural structures, and a lot of affordable restaurants are here, so there is plenty to explore. Barranco, also known as Peru's hipster district, is also on the list to visit if you decide to come!

3. Orlando, FL

Of course, I have to shoutout my lovely city of Orlando, FL! Yes, the theme parks are the main reason why people come here, but seriously, there is so much to do here besides Universal, Disney World, and Sea World. Being of the biggest tourist and golf capitals of the world, you name it, we probably have it here. Also, with the Orlando Magic, Orlando Apollos, Orlando City Soccer, and even the Orlando Solar Bears, the number of sports to watch here can keep you busy! Visiting Lake Eola and Downtown Orlando should be on the list as well because of that still one of the more underrated places to visit in Central Florida.

4. Flagstaff, AZ

A town that has is known for its awesome Winter Skiing and Summer hiking, this Arizona small town of Flagstaff is one to check out as well. Flagstaff is, however, more known for something completely out of this world. This town is known for being the training grounds for the 1969 Apollo Mission to the moon thanks to the lovely geography with all the meteor impacts and craters there, so you will find a lot of the restaurants and shops are actually moon-inspired.

5. Cairo, Egypt

Do I really need to tell you why you need to visit Egypt? Visit everything from the ancient days, including the pyramids. The Egyptian Government spends 1 Billion dollars a year just for tourists, so don't worry, there is plenty of sights to see!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
