Staying Positive In Lockdown (It’s Not All Worm Sh*t) PODCAST #20

Yesterday, at 12pm, New Zealand went to level 4 and as such, the entire country is currently in lockdown for (a minimum) of four weeks.

Thinking about something and then actually doing it are two different things.

When you are going about your daily life, walking to work and drinking coffee in cafes with buskers outside, the idea of spending a month with the same people behind closed doors seems somewhat of a novelty.

It wouldn’t be too bad, you think to yourself.

And then it starts.

How old is too old to travel?

You know how when you get to a certain age, and you suddenly start ‘playing on it?’

“Ohh… I couldn’t possibly take the bins out – I’m far too old for that.”

Or

“Don’t ask me to hold the dog down while you cut her toenails – I’m getting on a bit. I can’t kneel for long.”

This week’s podcast walks you through a budget-friendly and fun weekend with kids in Charleston, SC; one of the most popular and unique travel destinations in the world!

Last year my husband and I took our two kids ( teenagers age 16 and 13) to Charleston, SC for a long weekend.

But.

There was a catch.

As always we were on a budget (nothing new there then ) and I must admit, I was somewhat worried as to whether we’d be able to make our money stretch.

Our budget was $80 per day for the four of us.

Did we do it?
