Destination: South Africa
About this photo: Feeding the elephants in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa. At first, we were nervous about putting our arms in their mouths. But they were well-behaved and very happy to get their elephant snack pellets.
Best deal found: The plane tickets to South Africa were very expensive. But once we got there, the safaris, tours, and animal interaction was relatively cheap. Plus, we went to South Africa during the World’s Strongest Man competition (the one shown on ESPN where athletes lift cars, stones, logs, etc.) and saw several days of competition for free.

Destination: New Orleans, LA
About this photo: The light on either end of the day is lovely in the French Quarter, and the street lamps cast great reflections.
Best deal found: Priceline (name your own price) is consistently a great way to obtain low prices on four-star hotels in New Orleans. Got InterContinental New Orleans for $61 this trip (over Labor Day weekend) and have gotten rates as low as $49 at hotels like JW Marriott, Le Pavilion, and New Orleans Hilton Riverside–even over holiday weekends. Also, love the ferry to Algiers. . .a nice way to catch river breezes and views over the Mississippi–at the foot of Canal Street, the ride is free!

Destination: Peter Island, BVI
About this photo: This is one of the many beautiful beaches in Peter Island Resort BVI. It is more of a private resort and you can have quite time and enjoy the beauty and wonder of nature this landscape provides.
Best deal found: While the initial trip is a little expensive due to the fact that it is a small island, the meals that are included are a good deal for the amazing fresh foods that you get here. Also, there are not a lot of people on the island so you can really be away and on vacation with no one to bother you.
