  1. Great tips! The budget part is perhaps the most likely culprit to burst a dream vacation bubble, but you’ve got some great guidelines to keep things in line. A few years ago some family came to visit from across the planet and they were recommended $500/day as a budget when planning. This would include (on a daily basis) a hotel night, transportation throughout the day, meals and snacks, and then stuff like excursions, gifts, etc. It’s amazing how quickly that can get eaten up!

      Thanks for reading, Kris! Yes, budget can definitely be an issue if you don’t plan well. $500/day sounds like a lot of money but I guess when its for an entire family, maybe it isn’t. I tend to try to travel pretty inexpensively. For example, I’d rather spend less on my hotel since I typically only sleep there and use the money I save to do, see and experience more in each place (local food, sightseeing, excursions/outings, etc.)
