How to Spend Your Travel Budget (Just Like Me)
While it's easy to justify spending more on meals and gifts when on vacation, I still attempt to be responsible with my money. No matter how many times I convince myself that "I'll probably never be back here again," the rational half of my brain tries to keep me from investing all of my discretionary income in things like Panama hats and silk rugs. That said, I do like to treat myself to some luxuries when I travel. I just try to keep my priorities in order and stay within my budget. This is how I choose when to make a splurge.


I put a premium on direct flights and will always spend more to book my preferred dates and times. It's worth it to me to ensure that my time spent in transit is as pleasant as possible and that my life at home isn't too disrupted. Of course, I keep an eye out for airfare deals, but I make sure that the flight connections won't leave me bitter for the rest of my trip.


I'm not really sure whether I'm a foodie; I just know that I enjoy eating local foods when I'm on the road and sampling as many things as possible. Rather than breaking the bank on extravagant dinners, I spend my money on smaller meals throughout the day. Essentially, I graze. All of those bites add up, but it's worth it to me because food is a large of my cultural experience on any trip.
