I am planning my first trip to Cuba. Alot of people think we can no longer travel there from the US.
There are just some minor details you have to cater to and I can't wait to update you.
So how much is it? How do you travel? When do you have time? How can you afford it?
RT Flight from Charlotte : $66 (I had an American Airline voucher code to use, $200 off)
Travel days : Friday- Monday (Thur-Sunday gives the BEST DEALS), book with Google Flights , works if you are flexible and helps deciding best dates to go based on the prices.
Airbnb split 3 ways for 3 nights: $160 (Airbnb is always the way to go!), includes breakfast
Paid legal itinerary split 3 ways: $30
Isabelle - Itinerary Planner
3 Airbnb experiences (because we're extra) : $104
Spending cash -- TBD (based on my budget because I'm broke)
Our planner suggested $100/day - will update after returning.
I spent $300 USD for 3 days on cab, souvenirs, food, alcohol, water and tipping. I couldve totally spent less. You can totally survive with less than $100 per day if you dont buy gifts and eat on a budget and not buy alcohol lol.
Well for those that know me know I work HARD. I hustle up extra spending money when needed to support any habits to break my budget. I have an amazing support system that helps with Kayden when I make plans. I make my plans FAR in advance to make any necessary arrangements and utilize all resources. I take off work unpaid , and as a result put in extra hours doing a side job or two to make up for it. If I can, you can do it too!
FYI, I've never paid over $380 for a flight anywhere! (Mexico, Costa Rica, Grand Cayman, Puerto Rico) , I'm cheap, I travel cheap and typically always complain about something to keep the hotel and Airbnb discount codes coming :)
Simple as a hobby.
The only time I've painted was in high school 2004-2008. We only painted one year out of the 4 years in high school.
In my adult life, I painted again in Summer 2013. I was bored and needed something to do, being out of class and all. So I went to Michael's and stocked up on paint, brushes and bought my first easel. In 2 days, I had painted 4 paintings.
Fast forward to 2015. I moved to Woodbridge, VA to teach after graduating. I met this amazing friend, Amber. We had a ladies night at my place where we bought wine and decided to paint. It was totally random.
During that night, Amber suggested, out of the blue, that I start a sip and paint business. I never thought to be a business owner, but she put the thought in my head. So I ran with it.
That week, after school one day, I went to Michael's. Oddly enough, all the $20 wooden easels that I use were on sale for $6. Talk about incredible deal. From that moment, I knew it was in God's plan.
I bought all the easels they had that day. I left with 11 easels, 10 sets of brushes and enough paint to host at least one event. From that moment, I started spending late hours creating social media profiles to attract business and my website.
From there, business came to me. Now, here we are ... So far, since November 2015, I've booked 53 parties to date. God is GOOD!
