My apologies for missing the round up this week. I wasn’t feeling well last night, so I didn’t get a chance to get it posted. Then I was up and at ’em for work this morning, and I didn’t have a chance to catch up.
I do want to give my sincere thanks for the words of encouragement on my post about planning our trip to Europe. I have to confess, I was really nervous about sharing my plans. I had no reason to believe that my wonderful readers would be anything but supportive, but I also know that all of us in this community are committed to being debt free. I was worried that announcing such an expensive endeavour while we’ll still in debt might result in some judgment. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The comments I received were so supportive and encouraging. Thank you.
I’m excited, but also overwhelmed. We’ve never made a trip like this. So I’d also like to request advice if you have any to give. A couple of you have already offered some tips (thanks Susan and Claire!). If you’ve ever traveled to Europe — or to any other country for that matter — I would love to hear about your trip, especially if you’ve done it frugally!
I really want to have the trip of a lifetime, but since we’re still in debt and living on a modest income, we’re going to have to be creative if we want to do it without throwing off our goals too much.
I’ll be sure to write more as we continue to plan. First priority, though, is saving! :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Friday!
