Under $100 / North America

Enjoy breakfast at Miller’s Seawall Grill. This no-frills establishment serves giant breakfasts for a reasonable price. Many people recommend ordering the Moby Dick, only $14.


Start the day with a free ferry ride between Galveston Island and the Bolivar Peninsula. Many travelers see dolphins on the ride and, even if there are no dolphins, the view is still beautiful. It’s a great way to begin the day, but don’t go if you think you’ll get seasick after eating breakfast. The view is breathtaking in the morning, especially on clear sunny days.
For outdoorsy people, make your way to the Galveston Island State Park. It’s a $5 parking charge to get into the park. They offer kayak tours, beach and surf explorations, bird walks, nature field trips and fishing clinics. The best part is it’s all at no cost, but many activities do require an advance sign-up.


End the day at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, which has one rollercoaster, 15 rides, carnival games and souvenirs. Budget about $70 to cover rides and to munch on food at the pier. The entrance fee is about $30, but there are some games that cost money anyway and you’ll want money for souvenirs.

Online Resources for Finding Jobs Abroad

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Egyptian Handicrafts

One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.

Adventures on Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
