Do you think travel overseas is a luxury only a few ones can enjoy?
and you DO need money for doing it? I have heard mixed reviews about it. I mean there are people I know that even can enjoy a trip locally domestically or they dont eve know their own country beause some things are expensive and much less will have enough money to travel overseas.

Even if you find the cheapest fares in food, accomodations, tourist attractions plane tickets and dont buy lot of stuff just like small things like souvenirs, still you need quite amount of money to travel to other countries. Four years ago I travelled with 2 cousins to Europe for like 3 weeks. I did not have a lot of money back then to travel and my cousins and I even split accomodations, food fares so it won't cost a lot of money individually but still I spent some amount for sure One of those couisns have more money than me so he took the advtange to buy things that he knew he will never buy in our country so he bought a few expensive stuff even gifts for some people but also to show off by saying " I bought this in Europe". This was my cousin 2nd time in Europe as he travelled 2 years back before his sister and me. My cousin is of the idea of you only live once so you might as well spend everything you have, even if you then owe a lot in credit cards and you end up in just debts, that is my cousin motto. Well personally that is not my motto at all. I will never want to owe any debts to anyone, much less banks just because I have to take a trip to another country and enjoy life. I never travel for the reason of shopping and still you do spend some money. My male cousin once said to me in Europe: "Do not refrain from buying a thing you like here, cause you never know if you will return again and besides that is the reason you have a credit card, worry later you later will pay it". Im not like my cousin Im too conscious about my money and how to spend it, Im a frugal person and I hate paying big amount of money on a credit card and have debts.

Anyway like I said I split with my cousins back then and we tried to book cheap accomodations and try to eat just like sandwiches or hamburgers or pasta, simple stuff and still you spend money on it. Overall this trip for me cost me more than I thought and my work is not of a top executive or anything similar. So at the end traveling even if you find the cheapest thing in many things, still it is expensive and not everyone can do it and you do have to spend more than enough money to really

enjoy it, even if you want to save money little bit, you just can't.

Currently things are not the same economy wise , things are expensive everywhere, in this times and more so with the crisis. My male cousin one more time is planning his 3rd time to Europe this year again with his sister and he asked me to join them one more time, he says this time we won't be 3 weeks like before only 12 days and less cities, less $$ he told me, yea right
