G: Get outside. Nothing beats a hike in the woods or a day at the beach.

I: Immerse yourself in the culture. If you’re traveling to another country this is a great way to understand what that place is really about.
J: Join a tour group.

R: Rent a convertible. The only thing better than riding off into the sunset is doing it with the top down.
S: Shop and earn on the go. Capitalize on purchases you’d already be making.
