How often do you go on a vacation in a year and how much do you tend to spend? I usually take only one big trip a year. I try to go abroad during that trip when I can. Overall I probably spend between $1,000 and $2,000 on those trips depending on when and where I go. I also take weekend trips closer to home around once every 6 weeks. I spend much less on those, probably usually between $200 and $300, sometimes as little as $25 or $50 if I have friends to stay with. Overall I do spend a lot on travel in a year but it's important to me and I am willing to scrimp and save on other things to account for this. How about you? What is your attitude toward travel?
