Why is a visit to Davao never enough and staying longer would be very tempting if not for some constraints?

You can have fun with your family without breaking the bank.  Kids can easily adjust to almost anything, so, you wouldn’t have to worry about it.  Here are some tips to consider: Find a cheap spot.  This can be anything, like a trip to the beach which charges a minimal fee.  You can bring your own food and drinks.  Spending the whole morning till lunch at the beach for only $5 and gasoline is sure a cheap way to have fun with the whole family. Trade in the skillet for the grill.  Make a conscious effort to cut down on Read More
