Info about things worth splurging on when traveling in Italy and beyond


Here are some links about things worth splurging on when traveling in Italy and beyond:

  • 4 travel items that are worth splurging on – ". . .While it would be nice for every overseas trip to be a lavish experience of five-star hotels, gourmet meals and helicopter rides, such a lifestyle is typically out of reach for many of us. Thankfully, there’s a lot to be said for travelling on a shoestring budget. Eating street food, taking public transport and sleeping in cosy guest houses give you the unique opportunity to experience life like a local without putting too much stress on your personal bank account.  However, even seasoned backpackers recognise there are some things that are worth splurging on. Here are four travel items you should always pay top dollar for:" – March 17, 2016 – By – "About Us" – Source: Found in the blog@boq section on BOQ – "IT'S POSSIBLE TO LOVE A BANK"
  • 6 Things Worth Splurging on When Traveling in Italy – "When I give travel advice, the vast majority of the time it’s geared toward budget-friendly travel. I don’t have a trust fund, I assume you don’t, and yet that isn’t going to stop us from enjoying a trip to Italy now and then. And while we’d all love the luxury experience, most of us don’t want to get stuck with the bill. Italy isn’t an inexpensive country to visit, especially when compared with some destinations in Southeast Asia or even Eastern Europe. When you go, then, you want to make sure every euro is being spent wisely. I’m all for that – I want those spare euro for gelato, after all – but I also believe that there are some splurges that are totally worth it in Italy. This is my totally-not-comprehensive and entirely-subjective list of what’s worth the splurge in Italy. Your mileage may vary."  – blogger: Jessica Spiegal – Source: Italy Explained – "TRAVEL GUIDE | STORE | BLOG | ABOUT | MAIL"
  • Travel Investments That Are Worth the Splurge – "A big difference between someone who is cheap and some who is frugal is a willingness to spend on quality. Since I'm a pretty much a professional traveller, I've found that there are a few items that are worth splurging on that can actually save you money in the long run.  I've ranked them for you below on a splurge pain scale of 1 to 10, 1 being a minor irritation and 10 being a wallet-buster that really requires you to take a leap of faith but is actually worth it. These choices are subjective, of course, but they're based on my life experiences and observations. I hope that you can benefit from what I've learned along the way." – February 18, 2015 10:52 AM –– Source: Found in the YAHOO! FINANCE section on YAHOO! – "search engine"

  • When to Splurge in Europe – "I’ve always been a fan of budget travel tips. For more than 30 years I’ve written and lectured about ways to stow-away, picnic, and get special deals to be able to afford international travel. My feeling has long been that “you experience more by spending less.” While that’s still true, over the years I’ve realized that you can also justify splurges as good values when you consider the experience gained and the time saved. . ." – "" – By Rick Steves – "About Us" – Source: Rick Steves' Europe – "Tours, Travel Guides, Tips & Video"

  • 11 Travel Tips Italians Want You To Know – "Over 46 million tourists visit the boot-shaped peninsula each year! They come from all over the world, and many return again and again for a magic that only Italy can deliver.  As Samuel Johnson said, “A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what it is expected a man should see.”  Italians are very kind, and extremely patient (unless they’re driving). They are the guardians of some of history’s most magnificent treasures, and they are used to sharing them. However, there are a few things Italians want Americans to know before you arrive in their country" – "04/09/2014 03:25 pm ET | Updated Jun 09, 2014" – by Lisa Condie, Owner of Find Yourself In Tuscany – "About Us" – Source: The HUFFINGTON POST – " Inform • Inspire • Entertain • Empower" – Edition: U.S.

  • Travel Splurges Worth Making – "I’m just going to go ahead and admit something you probably already know about me: I suck at budgeting. I’m not great at math, I’m terrible at organization and worst of all I just have no willpower to stay in some sort of arbitrary daily constraint on how much I can spend.  I still travel very far for very little, but I’ll never be the sleep on the beach, eat canned tuna for a week kind of traveler. There are just some things I am never able to resist spending money on when traveling. This doesn’t mean that I’m the private jet charter, penthouse suite kind of traveler either, but there are some small splurges that just make all the difference to me when traveling." – February 3, 2013 – By – "About"  – Source: TWENTY-something TRAVEL – "WHY WAIT TO SEE THE WORLD?"
