Not everyone can afford to be a luxury traveler

ideas for saving money
- You can save quite a bit of money by travelling off season and finding some great deals. Personally, I really don't care about staying in really fancy places because you mostly end up just sleeping there anyway. I would much rather go in the area that's really beautiful, like beach or mountains, but stay in a modest place. Also, you can hunt for cheap airfar, use your mile rewards on a credit card (if you have such a program), etc. Finally, you can safe A LOT of money by staying in a place that has a kitchen and eating at least 2 meals a day there instead of eating out all the time.

Cheap Honeymoon Idea
- We really couldn't afford any kind of honeymoon and his parents took pity on us. They went to stay with friends, and gave us their house for three days. It wasn't the Ritz, but it gave us a chance to be together in private -- and that was really all we needed to recover from the wedding.
