Planning on a budget can be overwhelming. What are your tips for getting started?
First, get the best deal you can on a flight. Often times, that is one of your biggest expenses. If you check sites like Skyscanner or Kayak, or have a subscription to a low fare finder, those can end up saving you money! Also, if you already have a destination in mind, you can track flight prices to ensure you’re getting a good rate.
Secondly, remember that if there’s something that you want to do that is expensive, it doesn’t mean you automatically can’t. You just need to compensate elsewhere! For example: visiting the Blue Lagoon in Iceland is a MUST, but it’s also about $100 per person. Instead of saying no to such a once-in-a-lifetime experience, just make a commitment to cooking your own food instead of eating out for a few days.
What was the last trip you took, and what were some of the highlights?
The last international trip we took was to Iceland, and there were too many highlights to list them all! Iceland is a country that just blows you away at every turn. My favorite things were the otherworldly landscape, the many hot springs all around the country, and going on a trail ride on Icelandic horses at a local horse farm.
