As spring break approaches, most people are planning their trips to get away from the grind of university life. Truthfully this time around, after the semester I have been having, this break is badly needed. I was going to do the touristy thing and just go to New York and do the touristy routine. But instead I am planning to do something totally different now. I am going to do a whole spring break i.e. 7 days, on a budget of $300. The target is to travel, stay at hotels, have three meals a day and sight see within the budget.
Based on the concentration of my friends on the east coast, I am going to stay a couple of days in Durham/Raleigh in North Carolina and then move up to Fairfax, Va and Washington, DC for about 4 days of fun and discussions about politics and whatever else people talk about in DC.
As I start out on this adventure, I would love to hear from all of you. All your ideas, suggestions, travel hacks and just good wishes.
