I’m debating my summer vacation this year, especially since I will be fully vaccinated. While I am still being careful and won’t be doing much, I miss some traveling.
I was thinking about going to Brighton Beach/NYC for a few days, but then I realized that I’ve had my renewed Passport for 5 years and haven’t used it yet. Emily has been traveling around the Carribbean at a reduced rate since they’re trying to get some business back.
I was Googling places last night and Grenada was the first on the list. I decided to look at Air BNBs in Grenada, near St. George, and I found a house for $28/night. For three nights it would only cost me $96. There’s a kitchen and they have a garden. I could go food shopping and cook, I wouldn’t have to eat out, or I could do one night out for the experience.
Philadelphia is overpriced to fly out of and I would have to make a stop in Miami. $1200 round trip.If I fly out of JFK in New York, I can get a direct flight, round trip for $444. I might have to compare it to what I have originally planned in NYC or NJ.
I’m thinking this will definitely be cheaper than NJ. Air BNB rentals could go from $75-$100/night, then the transit, and eating. That trip usually costs me about $600. NYC is a bit cheaper, but probably not by much because of transit and eating.
I have a goal of paying off most debt by August. I am set to it, so maybe this could be a gift to myself when I pay off a card. My heart is calling for Grenada. I’ve never been there and it sounds like it would be a good experience and it doesn’t seem expensive at all.
