The Best DIY Switzerland Itinerary (On a Budget) - Even With Kids!

The Best DIY Switzerland Itinerary (On a Budget) - Even With Kids!

Can I travel to Switzerland on a budget? Switzerland is without a doubt one of the most expensive countries to travel to, so it makes sense that people regularly ask us if it is possible to travel to Switzerland on a budget.  Good news: Yes, you can! We traveled to Switzerland in July and had to start planning about 3-4 months in advance to make our two-week trip affordable, but it worked - and we kept our accommodations and adventures quite cheap! Switzerland is a adventure lovers dream, and the landscape is simply mind blowing. No wonder it has been the filming location for a number of hits such as a number of James Bond…

Amazing One Week Egypt Itinerary for first-timers

Amazing One Week Egypt Itinerary for first-timers

We recommend the 6-Day “Highlights of Egypt” Itinerary below, however you can jump to any of the sections listed above to piece together your personalized “Egypt Adventure”! Save yourself some planning and pick the Discover Egypt, Cairo & Nile cruise 6 Day Tour with tourradar. It does say 8 days on the tour page, but the first and last day are just transfers between the airport and the hotel. The cost is roughly the same as if you did it yourself, but you will have a knowledgeable guide to show you around, handle the logistics, and give you additional information! That’s how we did it! :)

Amazing Self-Guided Tour and Itinerary of the Scottish Highlands - 2, 3, or 4-Days

Amazing Self-Guided Tour and Itinerary of the Scottish Highlands - 2, 3, or 4-Days

This itinerary of Scotland will bring you from either Edinburgh or Glasgow up into the Highlands for either 2, 3, or 4 days.  If you only have 2 days, you will have to skip days 2 and 4, but it'll still be an amazing adventure!  While we found decent value with the Edinburgh Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing and Glasgow Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing passes, we felt that the highlands tour groups were advertising one price but then charging double in the end - so we made our own self-guided tour. This self-guided tour may be the highlight of your Scotland trip, but it won't cost you…

Hiking in Switzerland - Three Valleys Hike in Kandersteg, Switzerland

Hiking in Switzerland - Three Valleys Hike in Kandersteg, Switzerland

Hiking in Switzerland is no joke. Our guides informed us that it was rated a 3 out of 5 on the difficulty rating and considered a Swiss "family-friendly" hike. I suppose that Swiss people are generally more fit than Americans and hiking up high altitudes is a common family activity.
