Random Happenings of Cheapskate4Life - Road Trip to Des Moines

Recently I took a trip to Des Moines, Iowa to visit my friends Cynthia and Suman who had recently bought a house there. I realized, while driving the 3.5 hours, that this was the first time I had driven out of my state by myself. It was quite a revelation. I think this Cheapskate needs to explore the world a little more! :) Of course with gas prices these days, road trips aren't always an option... So if you have any tips for saving money while traveling, please share in a comment below!

Here are some photos from my trip. It was so much fun and Des Moines is an awesome city - I had no idea! There was so much to do and see, and of course it was fun to catch up with my friends and see their wonderful home!

Suman is a professional chef; He made shrimp, broccoli and quinoa for dinner - it was delicious!
We had Sunday brunch at Americana, which included Make-Your-Own bloody mary's and mimosas!
