Nashville; Wilmington, NC; West Palm Beach (although now that it hurricane season might be dicey); I love fall in the Northeast (white mountains or Catskills)

Niagara on the Lake. Gorgeous, good wines, lovely little shops, good restaurants, good theater. The Prince of Wales hotel has an amazing afternoon tea experience as well.

Quebec. Also depends on if you’re east coast or west!

Agreed, I don’t think CDMX is drastically different as NYC in terms of safety as a solo woman traveler. Would recommend staying in Condesa or Roma Norte and using Ubers over taxis. Also, if you don’t already have some working Spanish, would be helpful for the trip.

Iceland is typically dirt cheap to fly to, but once you get there they shake the money out of you.

I’m BOS and everywhere I search rn is super cheap (on delta). The world (that is open to Americans) is your oyster. Go abroad.

Dubai

Round trip from ORD costs close to 600$. Boston might be even cheaper.

You can do Ireland round trip for that

Belize - but indirect. Go to Cancun, then take a bus and a ferry. You get Low Price, long travel, adventure, and probably covid.

Considering buying a used car ($7 - 12k). Two questions: 1. Is this a reasonable price range given my financial situation? 2. Would it be better to pay in full or put down a large down payment and then do low interest monthly payments? Context: 23 yo, 82k salary, 28k in checking/saving, 15k in 401k/stocks, no debt. Monthly spending is as follows (1400 for rent + all bills, 300 for food, ~150 in Misc spending). My partner will be moving in with me next month so around $500+ in savings per month

I've been seeing social media pics of a couple families and now a third family in a "social bubble" ... we all used to be close friends. At each other's weddings, held the baby showers.
, etc. Admit I am feeling jealous. I'm realizing this gap has been growing for a lot longer than the pandemic, truthfully. Another family is also 'on the outs' and we banded with them. Trying to keep my chin up and not be vengeful or petty. Anyone else finding out who your real friends are during this time?
