Every traveler has a budget; for some it just might be higher of lower than for others What’s your style? What do you spend very little on and what are you always willing to pay more for?
I’m willing to splurge on experiences. After all, what’s the point of being somewhere if you can’t take it all in?
Sleep = bed and breakfasts keep the cost low, and get you more immersed in the local life.
Food = eating in markets, or restaurants that locals frequent are usually much cheaper, and better, than tourist places, or places with menus in many languages, or in key tourist locations.
Experiences = and well worth the splurges.
