Travel writer Katie Baker is using her new book to show how a good time can be made even more affordable.
In “The Bubble,” Baker writes about the ways her book has inspired others to make trips to the Big Apple to celebrate their first and second birthdays.
Baker’s book is an introduction to her career as a travel writer and the work she has done in her career to connect people with opportunities in their lives.
She told USA TODAY she was inspired to write the book when her husband of 11 years, who has Down syndrome, began experiencing health issues.
“I was in a good place financially and mentally,” Baker said.
The book is about the challenges of making money as a freelancer and her advice to others.
Baker shared how she found herself in New Orleans and the struggles that her husband faced during the time of his first illness. “
It was a chance to meet people, see a bust, and then spend a week there with my husband.”

Her book includes travel tips to help you prepare and plan your trip to see New York in a way that is both affordable and memorable.
Here are the book’s travel tips.
Plan a trip in advance and buy the tickets you want to go to.
The best way to do this is to buy a travel voucher from travel websites like Travelocity.
The cheapest one is $100.
Buy the cheapest tickets possible.
Baker recommended a hotel in the Big Sur area that will be booked for a minimum of four days and two nights.
Travelocity’s cheapest tickets are $40 each.
If you book a one-night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, it costs $150 for four nights.
If that’s cheaper than a two-night hotel, it can be even cheaper.
Baker recommends staying at a hotel that has a full bar and kitchen, as well as free Wi-Fi.
Travelocity is offering $150 voucher cards for one-way, one-day and two-day trips, so you can save even more if you can get to the destination.
Be prepared for unexpected challenges.
Baker’s book says it can take three weeks for a first-time visitor to make a full recovery, and that is if you are lucky.
Don’t expect your first trip to be easy.
You will be nervous and overwhelmed and will have to adapt to the new environment.
“Don’t let the first few days be the time to relax,” Baker advised.
Have a plan to meet new people.
Baker said that her goal is to be able to meet a new person every day.
“I have met some of the best people I have met on my trip,” Baker explained.
