traveling, have you been really thinking about enjoying it
cost-effectively? Or you just prepare the money to get all the luxurious
pleasure no matter how much it will be?

Of course it is very tempting to try and see as much as possible in a
foreign country by constantly moving. But, itís dubious that you will
also get a good sense of what the country is like. If youíre willing to
stay for a while, for instance by renting an apartment for a few weeks
in a particular city, you can experience the culture a bit more, meet
and indulge with some locals, dine in local restaurants, and of course,
save more money.
So, have you decided where you want to go now? Have you checked out the
flights and the prices? Hope you enjoy your traveling!
