I don't know about you, but I'm not getting any younger.  It's time to book that vacation to your dream destination and here's how:

A few years back - maybe after a significant birthday, I looked around and saw all these people who were much younger than me travelling to places where I have always wanted to go.  I thought to myself, if THEY can do it, so can I.

So I did a little digging and found a place for really cheap, all inclusive travel and GROUPON is her name.

For instance, check out this trip to Paris, hotel AND airfare for $499!!  I know you have to fly out from JFK in NYC, but who cares!  Get a ride to the big city or take a bus - they are cheap enough!  I mean, for $499, you can do it.

There are plenty of trips that fly out of Boston too.  Like when I went to London on a Groupon deal this past Summer and I couldn't be happier about it.  I was there for 8 days, 7 nights, hotel and airfare cost me about $1,300.  I thought that was a steal.  It was an unforgettable trip!
