A recent trip to Europe (3 1/2 weeks):

Costs are approximates only, I didn't keep track

Business-class tickets to London on MAS: RM1700 (ticket: RM0, tax RM1700; redeemed Enrich miles)
Economy-class planet tickets within Europe: RM1000
Cost of renting a BMW Z4 for 3 days: RM2100 (incl. fuel)
Overnight train ticket (cabin): RM300
Accomodation (25 nights in a mix of budget apartments, 5-star hotels and budget hotels): RM12,000
Food & Drinks (street food, cafes, supermarkets, typical local restaurants and fine-dining): RM5,000
Shopping (branded clothes, shoes, wines, souvenirs, etc): RM6,000 (saving around RM7,500 in the process - vs prices of the same branded goods in KL!)
Misc. expenses: RM2,000
Total cost: RM30,100

Experience of a lifetime (sailing on the Adriatic, climbing up mountains, taking amazing photos, wining and dining in Michelin-starred restaurants, etc): PRICELESS!
So, answering TS's question: YES!!
Nicely planned and reasonable pricing. Most importantly, the experience. smile.gif

Would like to get more pointers from this experience of yours. Thanks for sharing.

As for this topic, yes I will spend the money. As long as I have enough to eat, clothe, move around and have a shelter over my head.. the remaining money I will allocate a portion for travelling. Because seeing new places and exploring streets/tourist spots is one of my dreams or hobby. I will genuinely appreciate the experience.

Only been to Asia. Am working towards saving for Europe and later, the USA. smile.gif
