    Great post! I really connect with Laurie and Bryan’s philosophy of travel – be budget-conscious, but not overly cheap. Remember travel should be fun, enlightening, and fair to the people and places we visit.

    I’m curious if they want to nominate any amazing independently owned hotels for budget-minded travelers on our site, darngooddigs.com?? I bet they have a few spots they would recommend hands-down from all their travels around the world. We would be psyched!

    Yes, it’s always those unexpected things that happen that blow a budget. It’s always good to have a bit of a cushion in your budget “just in case”. (BTW, JoAnna, your link above for Budget Your Trip is not working.)

      I agree. Managing a budget is still one of the hardest things I struggle with when it comes to traveling.

      Thanks for letting me know the link wasn’t working. It should be working now. 🙂
