Submitted by: Rick G.
Destination: Australia
About this photo: This is a shot taken of the Victoria coastline while driving Australia’s Great Ocean Road.
Best deal found: Most Australian museums are free. Also there is not a tipping culture in Australia for the most part. Although servers in high-end restaurants will appreciate a tip of 10% for exceptional service, most waiters, taxi drivers and bellmen do not expect tips.

Submitted by: Kate M.
Destination: WaterSound, Beaches of South Walton, FL
About this photo: A winding boardwalk along one of the coastal dune lakes of South Walton, Florida. (Between PC Beach and Destin on the Panhandle) Path eventually brings you to the beach (just beyond the dunes in the distance.)
Best deal found: Biking along 30-a and exploring the little communities like this along the way is free and priceless.

Submitted by: Zachary K.
Destination: Tulsa, OK
About this photo: Right before a big storm hit Tulsa. Storm front kind of looks like an A-bomb mushroom cloud. I’ve never seen a storm front look like this before.
Best deal found: None. I live here.

Submitted by: Doug T.
Destination: British Virgin Islands
About this photo:
Sunset over St. John, USVI, taken from the Bight at Norman Island, BVI. Great cellphone reception as you can see my brother Bob has figured out.
Best deal found: Hiking around on Salt Island, BVI, which is inhabited, but has no shops so there is nothing to buy. Wildlife viewing (hummingbirds and goats)was free.

Submitted by: Mark L.
Destination: Bahamas
About this photo: Taken from our 3rd floor balcony.
Best deal found: Too many to mention.

Submitted by: Shawn C.

About this photo: Coming home in the boat we viewed a beautiful Sunset over the calm water after a day of Fishing in JANUARY! Can’t complain with High 60’s in January.
Best deal found: Tuna Tacos at Kody’s Restuarant. Best you’ll ever have.

Submitted by: Robert K.
Destination: Montego Bay
About this photo: Sandals All Inclusive- The only money we needed once we arrived was for this sail…a splurge on our part because we were not spending money on resort.
Best deal found: Looking up at the Catamaran Sail during a picture perfect day.
