Enchanté! Try a Michelin-Starred Tasting Menu for 2
Ever been traveling and wanted to indulge in a delicious experience, but didn’t want to get extravagant with your travel budget? With some extra savings in your pocket, you can roll that cash into something truly indulgent—an experience that makes you the envy of all your friends and inspires even better memories. For example, you could take the plunge on a tasting menu for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant—or indulge in a Thalassotherapy spa treatment after a scenic day of walking.
Savor the Sauce: Ship Yourself a Case of Rioja
Everybody buys keepsakes when they travel—it’s kind of an unspoken requirement, right? From small items that remind you of a wonderful moment to those thoughtful gifts for a special someone, these mementos can bring you happy recollections for years to come. With a couple hundred dollars at your disposal, you might splurge on something a little more extravagant—like a handmade Irish sweater, Baltic amber jewelry, or a case of your favorite French or Italian vintage—direct from the local village where it was crafted.
Haute Your Couture with Designer Luggage
Got an extra $276 burning a hole in your pocket? You might consider spending it on top accessories that make your travel experience that much more relaxing and comfortable. For example, it’s hard to pass up a fancy new suitcase—along with a set of compressible packing cubes to help keep you organized. Ensure the scenery looks its best with a pair of pro-level cycling sunglasses—or chart your activity with a smartwatch or fitness tracker. Relax by the pool with an e-reader packed with your favorite novels—or jam out to your favorite tunes with a fresh set of noise-cancelling headphones.
