|Subject: Food Budget in Europe|
You asked about budgeting food in Europe while on an
independent trip. We control costs by eating from the
grocery store at least one meal a day, breakfast is
most often included in the room cost, and save the
grand meals for when you are sure they will be grand!
Another thing we do is to not sit down to eat a casual
bite as the extras for a table seting in a cafe are no
small sum. Of course, we break all these rules on
occasion. Not often, though. We also buy local wines
in the grocery store for our picnic meals whether
they be at noon or in the evening.
