Can’t Afford to Travel But Can Totally Afford to Be a Travel Snob

Most of the email newsletters I’ve signed up for go to spam. The ones that don’t, I wish they did. Exception: The Travelzoo Weekly Top 20, which alerts me to the very best in airfare, hotels, and all-inclusive vacation packages that I have never and will never buy. I devour it each week.

“$699 — Costa Rica 6-Night Adventure w/SUV Rental & Air” driving in the jungle nope

“$99 — Florida Keys: Suite at Beach Resort, 60% Off” nope

“$349 — Caribbean 7-Night Holiday Cruise, $150 Off” i could be talked into some trashy good old American fun on a boat, lemme just open that in a new tab, sure

“$149 — Luxe Atlantic City Resort incl. $100 Credit” nope

“$566 — New York City to Iceland Nonstop (R/T, w/Tax)” it’s kind of a cliche—”oh i’m going to iceland”—but i’m going to open it in a new tab rn anyway

“$1699 — Peru & Machu Picchu 8-Night Trip w/Air, Save $1950” to be honest i never have been interested in machu picchu that’s ok right

“$399 — Vermont 2-Night Culinary & Spa Escape, Reg. $792” lol this sounds like something a women’s magazine would tell you to do to reconnect with your hubs, no
