BRAND BALLOT'S TOP 100 MOM BLOGS FOR 2018!!
Good day guys,
I'm not going to lie - I'm a bit confused with the days here. Yes, it's Wednesday, but it feels like - I don't know - all I know is I forgot it was Wednesday and didn't put my recyclables to the curb last night lol. So, I've got even more for next week's pick up.
Before I go any further, I want to apologize for a MAJOR typo in my Scoop yesterday. Throughout my blog, I inaccurately spelled Granada (Spain), with an "e" making it Grenada, as in the island in the Caribbean. Of course, my posting was featuring GRANADA and the wording went back and forth between GrAnada and GrEnada in the text. Many apologies.
Here is the corrected post from yesterday, for those of you who picked up on that major faux pas.
January 22, 2019 - 12 Interesting Facts About Granada and Tanya Cruisin' Europe -Day 11 - Granada, Spain
It certainly sounds as if Tanya had a fun filled day roaming around Malaga, the Granada (Spain) port and Gibraltar, UK. Take a gander at her Scoop for the low down.
As for me, well, I received a very good read today via email from Gary Axelbank, publisher (and friend) at ThisIsTheBronx.info.
On the Road to Uruguay’s Barely Known and Beautiful Beaches
This article, featured in the New York Times by the Frugal Traveler, provides a great deal of insight into this "off the radar" and laid back South American country, as well as the inside skinny on why this destination is ideal for budget conscious travelers.
According to the article, "As of September, the government has discounted restaurant and rental car bills by 22 percent when paid with a foreign credit card (foreign travelers don't pay the country's added tax, or IVA). Foreigners don't pay the IVA on hotels either."
But, you do need to move a bit quickly if you'd like to take advantage of this great deal, as this regulation is in place only until April. So, if you have been thinking of a very relaxing and peaceful beach vacay, you might want to investigate Uruguay!
As for me, I'll be getting my day going now, but I'll be back tomorrow to tell you all about Alicante, Spain, the last port of call on Tanya's Cruise this week and where she is roaming about and exploring today.
