Excited about a bargain trip booked...

Unexpectedly, I was scrolling through Facebook and learned Frontier Airlines was coming to Newark Airport. They were offering $15 fares if you could fly o either a Tuesday or a Wednesday. When I was teaching, taking advantage of such a sale would have been impossible. Of course, there are extra charges for things like bag check, and we are returning before the following Tuesday because we have appointments and don't need a full week down there,but even with that, my friend and I are flying for what one of us would have flown on United, and they of course have extra charges, too. To fly home, instead of $15, that leg is $59, still a bargain, especially in their busy season.We will be going to Key West in December, flying through Miami and then driving down US1, a drive we have done before. Besides the lodging we secured close to the beach, I am thrilled about returning to Everglades National Park. We did it in the summer three years ago and the ranger told us that we would see a lot more wildlife if we were able to return in the winter or spring. Now I will have a chance to go back. I love being able to travel to places in retirement at times other than the summer or school breaks.

That sounds like a wonderful trip and a great deal. I, too, love traveling when school is in session. We went to Asia in January for two weeks and may be going away sometime this fall too.

Florida weather in summer is brutal! So glad you can now go in the off- season. Hooray for retirement!
