My wife and I love to travel. but unfortunately time and money are in limited supply, so we do our homework and maximize our dollars. For instance, we once spent a week in Peru for less than $1200 US dollars (total - air included). This year we stayed in NYC and DC for free (home swaps) and in September we visited 6 countries in 18 days for under $5000 (total - air included). And we don't feel we've compromised - we stay is nice places near the action. We also try to learn a little of whatever language is spoken at our next destination. It just makes for a better experience when you can interact with the people whose country you're visiting. So many places, so little time (and money).
