This year with the Euro below the value of the dollar, your money goes further than it has in many many years. That means hotels are less expensive, food, shopping, tours and getting around are more affordable than ever. When the Euro was worth $1.45 everything was almost 50% more expensive. Now I can see more and do more for the same amount of money.
So with all you’ve saved from the value of the dollar against the Euro, you might be able to justify a splurge. A dinner at a legendary restaurant or a castle stay can make a vacation really memorable. Carpe diem!
