Hi everyone! Well, I am a bit worried about costs in Europe. My sister’s friend just came back from a 2 week trip yesterday and says things were SOOOOOOO expensive. She said that the average lunch for two was around US$100! She really freaked me out with these prices. She also said the exchange rate she received was 1 Euro for US$1.50. I thought it was around 1.25 and today I saw it go down to 1.22.Is that the rate you get over there when you exchange your money? I have been worrying about my budget but now I am freaking! Do you think she just traveled lavishly or is this what I should expect. I will be traveling with hubby for 5 weeks from May to June on US$180 a day. Do you think this is sufficient or will we be bad shape. Thanks for your help!!!
