We are going to Europe for 2.5 weeks. Flying out to Paris, taking the train/flying to Venice, Florence (or Pisa), Rome, and flying across to Athens, and finishing in Santorini.
We set our budget at $5,000 which doesn’t seem like a lot, but 75% of that will be spent on hotels, and food there. I started saving Air Miles before we got engaged last year, and I’m at 6,000 points right now which will cover at least a week of hotel stays. Fiance and I both have Aeroplan points too, which together will cover both of our flight tickets to Paris (minus the $290 taxes/fees), and he has $300 of travel on his credit card that he can use for anything he wants travel related.
We are going to Puerto Rico for 5 nights/6days. Flights from New England & hotel room were $1600. We are staying in a small very nice boutique hotel on the beach in a ocean front room. We have another $1500 budgeted for food & exploring. Our rental car was $130 for 4 days
We live in MA and and are spending 5 nights in New Orleans. We have spent $1200 so far for the hotel and the airfare. Hotel includes breakfast.
We will probably end up spending around $800 or so on food and drinks for the time we are there plus any shopping or spending money. When all is said and done it will prob cost us like $2500 at the most.
My fiance and I wanted to go to Europe and visit Spain, Italy, Greece, turkey, Scotland, England, and France but we’re paying for the wedding ourselves and just bought a house so it’s not feesable. We haven’t booked yet but now we’re thinking about flying into San Fran then driving down the coast to stay in San Diego for a total of 12 days. We want to have a good balance of relaxing time and activities to do. It should come in around $3500. We’ll definitely make Europe happen within the next 5 years!
We were week in LA and a week in Bora Bora – Moorea. Around 15K and worth every single penny.
We are planning on doing 3-4 weeks touring Japan and South Korea next May!
Fiance owns his own business but can do 99% of his job remotely and I’m going to be in that awkward period of unemployment before I start my first year of law school next fall so we figure, why not take a long vacation? Plus, we wanted to do something unique as we’ve both done tons of traveling and neither of us are fans of prolonged exposure to the beach. Japan and Korea seemed like the perfect choices.
