Cameras & Accessories: For Great Vacation Photos
My Favorite Camera:
If you're not an experienced photographer and want a camera that takes great vacation photos, then get the Canon Powershot SD1200. This little camera packs a lot of punch for the price, has a wide angle lens plus a video feature that I love.
Most of the photos and videos you see of me on this site we're taken with this little camera that has been with me on trips to over ten countries, two cruise ships and even through the Panama Canal. I used to have a Nikon Sure Shot that I did not like at all as I had problems taking non-fuzzy photos with it. While I was struggling with the Nikon, a business colleague told me about the Canon SD1200 and I've been using that camera ever since. If you decide to get this camera, make sure you get the case too (sold separately).

Admission fees to theme parks and local tourist attractions can really add up and max out your vacation budget, but you can save up to 55% on theme parks with Go City Cards. I've used these for several vacations and saved hundreds of dollars. Just one of my many best travel deals tips you'll find on this website. ~Marianne Schwab
Avoid Jet Lag
You're packed and ready to go on vacation, so now comes the most important issue at hand: avoiding jet lag when you arrive at your destination. A survey by Conde Naste said that 93% of travelers get jet lag but you don't have to be one of them if you use my tips. ~Marianne Schwab
Book Your Trip
Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate.
