Destination: Real de Catorce, San Luís Potosí, México
Best deal found: The Mexican Peso! The exchange rate was 13.5 to the Dollar, an improvement of over 1/3 since I was there just 1 month ago. And with the level of service you get from the great people of Mexico, it makes any event even that much more or a value.

Destination: Honolulu, Hawaii
Best deal found: While visiting my best friend in Hawaii, we went to the ALOHA TOWERS SHOPPING CENTER. (As the picture shows the actual tower) I found an absolute bargain in HOOTERS. They have a “before happy hour” menu where the prices of ALL the food is more than half off. And you can eat and drink for nearly nothing for that hour. We went just about everyday and ate and drank. It was awesome.
