Planning - Budgets
You can travel like a rock star and spend unlimited amounts of money, be a frugal backpacker on mere dollars a day, or end up somewhere happily in the middle - the choice is yours.

Pick and choose where you want to spend your money based on what is most important to you - are you willing to sacrifice sleeping arrangements to fund your fancy dinners? Will you have daily picnics so that you can buy a gold Eiffel Tower replicate? How about flying first class and then sleeping on park benches? You are the master of your own vacation!
