In just a few short weeks the essays will begin piling up, not to mention the bills. That means, as a student, you need to take these last dwindling opportunities to get away from the stress of summer jobs and relax. Travel doesn’t always have to be extravagant, and it certainly doesn’t have to be expensive. One suggestion for a traveling Badger on a budget would be a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Maybe it might not be the most exotic location (it is only about thirty minutes away from Brock University), but it certainly has a lot of character. From golf courses to historical forts, NOTL is a smorgasbord of affordable entertainment. Not to mention the vineyards and breweries! It’s like a year-round Grape and Wine Festival-without the regrets or inevitable shame. If you find walking down English side streets in the British countryside enticing, NOTL might be as close as you will get without taking out another student loan. The point of a vacation is not to go far or extraordinary, it’s just a unique experience totally indifferent to the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
