Secrets to Success on our European Vacation

Posted on February 11, 2008 @ 2:01 pm

I have to say that our trip to Europe was one of the most monumental moments of my life.  It was quite amazing to see the places that we had studied in school, and those few places that I have dreamed about all my life (think Stonehenge).

But going on the trip wasn’t free, and there was a price attached to it.  We had to save up our money for a long time, and work a little extra on the weekends so that we could go. 
Sure, this meant that we would have less social time with our friends, but with our dreams in sight, we made a commitment to do what was needed to be done, to get where we wanted to go.

Alright, that wasn’t our only secret.  In fact, I would say that the most cost savings were done by my wife.  You see, she is a bit of a bargain hunter, and she had been scouring the web for cheap car rentals.  She was able to find cheap car hire Italy, cheap car hire Switzerland, and cheap car hire Ireland.

Did those savings add up?

You bet.  In fact, thanks to her finding us good deals, we were able to stay an extra week, and come home with some money left in our bank accounts.
