how about if travelling by joining travel agency? I'm planning to travel by travel agency (I'm thinking about Apple Holiday) coz they include everything already, the flight tickets, hotels, meals, etc.. can anyone share their experience if it's worth it to spend 10k?

Where are you planning to go?

planning to go to central europe, here's the itinerary
according to the itinerary, they are going to belgium + france + netherlands within 8 days, is it too rushing or 8 days are enough already?

I spent about 8k to travel around SEA countries in year 2011 alone (2k each trip). I visited 4 different countries with the 8k alone, which excluding my business trip to Beijing.
I made the itinerary myself, booking myself, research myself, etc. and I must say that I've learnt a whole lot more than my previous trips to SEA countries. Soul searching trip is not an easy trip to plan IMHO tongue.gif

2k each trip??! woahhh you must be very good in planning a trip!

^hopefully I'll be able to plan 2k trip too =) so far my trip (just 2 for now) both exceeds 2k..

oh btw, did you use public transportation to travel around? coz usually the transport itself already require loads of cash

Just saw your itinerary. Looks pretty good but compact, all the major spots covered.

ya you're right, the itinerary is so compact, I prefer to spend more time on certain places actually
the pictures you posted & your blog really inspire me to work & earn money a lot & travel! don't know when will I able to do that though sweat.gif

For Reliance, I usually see their ads in the newspapers and call, or walk-in their offices get their really nice brochures and quotations tongue.gif
People always say Apple is the best for Japan tours, while Reliance is the best for Europe tours. Just what I heard. Just choose the one with the itinerary you like best I guess (usually Apple is slightly more expensive)

I joined Apple before to Korea, I'm really satisfied with them, but yea kinda expensive
ok will check more about Reliance =) thank you
