So here I am, drawing up a proposed itinerary with a breakdown of costs for V – she’s kinda concerned that our budget might be a little tight for a trip to the States, but I’m quite sure we can make it work.
One major bummer is the cost of accommodation in NYC. Unless we’re happy with shared bathrooms, this could eat into the budget pretty hard. For now, I’m just looking around at the good old HostelWorld for something with good ratings, a private bathroom and decent location, preferably downtown. My first pick right now is New York Budget Inn – good location and decent price, can’t beat that. I like Q4 Hotel too, but it’s located in Queens and I prefer something a little closer.
Honestly, I would love to stay in a fancy hotel and have a good time in NYC for this honeymoon trip, but the dollar beckons and what is a man with limited income supposed to do, but to buckle down and make the best of things?
Research, research, and more research awaits.
