Hawaiian sky at sunset.
Some people just love to argue. One guy, who read yesterday’s post, typed TOKYO in the search bar and read about our trip to Tokyo in 2008. He couldn’t believe that we spent $3,000 on a 3 night 4 day trip. He said that for a little more money, we could have seen more cities for a longer period of time.
I replied that for $1,500 per person, we saw a lot in 4 days. For example, one tourist we know has visited Japan numerous times, but still has not gone up to the observatory in the Tokyo Tower, experienced a Shinto tea ceremony, or cruised on the Sumida River. We have!
Besides, $1,500 per person is all we wanted to spend. That covered air fare, hotel, transfers, taxi, food, and an all day tour of the city.
As far as travel goes, the sky is the limit. People can spend a zillion dollars if they are not careful. You have to stick to a budget and then tailor your trip around it.
As I said, this guy loves to argue. When I happened to mention that I now avoid raw food like salads because of my gastrointestinal problems, he said he eats a salad every day and has no problem. Well, I am one of those colitis patients who try to avoid bacteria and parasites, if at all possible. I just prefer cooked veggies, that’s all.
Blah, blah, blah…
