My husband and I like to travel and recently we’re hooked on Europe. We’ve pretty much done all the major domestic destination already, from the obligatory Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon to Disneyworld and Disneyland in California and Florida.
But in terms of a really good vacation and for when you really want to see new things I don’t think there’s anything better than going to Europe. In the last four years we have been to the UK, Germany, France and Italy. Each of those places has its very unique charm and flair but I think the overall winner here was Italy. I attribute that to the great weather, friendly people and the fantastic things we saw in Rome. It was an unforgettable trip, no doubt.
When we talk with others we can often see that they’re pretty shocked since they think we must be rich to be able to afford going to such places. But let me tell you that those trips were not that much more expensive than staying in Disneyland Florida. The secret here is that you need to know where to look online to get in on the cheapest flights and best deals for hotels. You can save even more money if you skip the hotels altogether and just rent an apartment for a week or two. We did that on two occasions. Heck, if you’re younger you might even rent a camper or a tent if you dare. Once you find a cheap flight (and there are many sites that allow you to find them easily) you’re basically already half way there, the rest is on you and depends only on how much you’re willing to spend.
One thing is for sure, with the internet it’s so much easier today to travel the world without having to spend a lot of money.
