will speak Saturday at LFP Library
Anyone planning an independent adventure to Europe faces some daunting logistical challenges: How to make the most of their time and money while putting together a satisfying itinerary that maximizes both.
There are so many questions — Where should we go? When? What's the best route? Where should we stay? Rent a car or take the train? What to pack? And the most fundamental question of all: How do we get more value while spending less?
These are big questions and most find answers the hard way—after they've already wasted valuable time and money. Your cash, hours and energy are finite resources; learning how to budget them properly is the key to getting the most out of your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Travel writer and tour guide James Ullrich will share his best hard-won advice on wringing the maximum value from your hours and dollars in Europe. You'll hear his favorite tips on transportation, daytrips, packing, budgeting, and crafting an itinerary that lets you love your trip on your own terms without breaking the bank.
