Don’t ever let anyone see you handling your cash stash (or where you stash an emergency credit card (i.e. don’t keep all your credit and debit cards together).
If you travel for longer than a three or four-day getaway, you notice how eating in restaurants adds up very quickly. There’s tax, tip (most places), the drink from the ‘Drinks’ section that looks good, the add-in of an appetizer or a side (or three) and a little bit of dessert. So, cook instead of eating outside.
No matter where you go, alcohol is not something required for your body. Although some people travel for beer or travel for cocktails or wine or consider alcohol as a way to explore a place, if you consume alcohol every day, it can become a hefty portion of your daily travel costs.
