Hi, Frances... Are you saying you spend around $140 for each of you per day?
In other words, you spend around $280 a day in Paris? Now, does that
include your hotel? We figure out our hotel separately, and then we take
about $100 per day out for spending money. That's only for food, as we've
already paid for a Carte Orange transportation pass, a Carte Musee museum
pass, and a France Telecom telecarte. We usually have breakfast in a
cafe -- croissants and coffee and tea -- and only one big meal in a
restaurant. We pick up snacks along the way in the creperies and
boulangeries, instead of another big meal, or stop in a cafe for Croque
Madame and a beer. I'm with you... more frequent travel even if it has to
be on a budget. In fact, it's a challenge.... our biggest challenge,
though, is time. My husband doesn't have a lot of time off to travel.
