The first thing I think of when I hear "living large" is dream vacations. Maybe it's just me, but to travel the world in search of the most beautiful beach would be like dying and going to heaven. But, then I get knocked back into reality and realize it's never gonna happen. So, how can I visit a beautiful beach while on a budget. Well in this post, I will give you what I know. Feel free to add in additional references in my comments section!

Also found an awsome option for cruising on a dime:
But sometimes the flights alone can turn a cheap trip into trip into a year long credit card bill. So here's a few of my favorite sites:
