We’re not sure if it is just because we live in Colorado where there isn’t a good public transportation system. Or whether it is because everyone is spread so far out that they have to drive to the airport, but the parking prices to leave your car at the airport for seven days is astronomical. We’ve found a trick to save ourselves a little money and make flying out of Denver a little easier. Instead of parking our car at the airport, we spend the night prior to our flight at one of the airport hotels. Many of the hotels offer seven days of free parking if you spend a night. Sometimes they charge an additional $10 for the parking, but some, like the Embassy Suites, do not.

No matter how much time you spend in a country, or even a city, there is always one more place to see or thing to do. Sure, it may not be the most important thing to see or do, but it probably something interesting or fun that someone else has done. After returning to the United States from spending six months in Europe, our least favorite question that people asked us when we got back was “did you go to…?”. We were working during the week, so we only had weekends to travel and didn’t have an unlimited budget, so obviously we couldn’t go everyplace. We also wanted to take advantage of our close proximity to other countries in Europe, so we couldn’t see every place in Germany, let alone Europe.

Tower Bridge in London
The same is true of many other trips. We spent…
