Places To See That Do Not Break The Bank.

Summer ​Adventures for that person on a budget

Summer is in full swing and all the trips are poping up left and right. Now how do you visit all you want to see and not break the small little bank you have at the moment? Simple, visit some places that are a fun trip, but do not cost a lot to explore their beauty.

Planning trips with friends and family can be stressful enough let alone finding the money for each trip that is planned. With any trip that can be explored it is always ideal to spend less money on food and more on what you want to do and see, the experiences of the trip. Planning ahead for gas and brainstorming long-term is the best way to plan out any vaca on a budget.

Then again, seeing the mountains and feeling the beach are always free, it is traveling to the destination that can be challenging. Traveling with a group can be the best way to save some money and have the most fun.

1. Any beach possible

Any summer calls for some relaxing while hearing the waves and feeling salt in your hair. Maryland has some beaches that are fun to explore with the road trip buddies. Ocean City is a great beach for rides, food, and shopping but when on a budget, browsing the board walk and tanning next to the waves will do just as well. Rehoboth and Bethany beach are also great get away places for the day that are more secluded and private to tan or read a book at ease with the waves right by.

2. Cute little historic towns

Little towns are a great day trip with a date or shopping with your best friend. They are peaceful and small so it is not so overwhelming if you are looking for a great quiet day away. This will take some saving, but it will not be hectic once you are there. Window shopping is also fun do to do and depending on the area you can see some historic sites without paying close to nothing. Edgar Allen Poe's house is a great example of visiting some history. You can see the historic house, church and grave site all in Baltimore. If you want to travel out more you can visit places like Fort McHenry, The B&O railroad museum or Antietam. Annapolis is also a great day trip with a lot of history.

3. State parks

Parks cost maybe $5 maximum and there are endless benefits. Parks offer the space for a cute date or paths to get back in shape and have a run. They offer day trips with your dogs or day trips with your friends. They offer space to tan or lay out and read a good book. They offer adventurous hiking trails or even staying a night and camping out with nature. State parks have the beauty of nature and endless stuff to do when on a zero budget plan. Parks are located all over Maryland and take a simple google search of your area to find one.

Again, with all of these places and destinations the journey getting there is where you will spend most of the money, but once you get there it does not take much to have a fun trip!

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
