Destination: Northern Ireland
Best deal found: Everything in Northern Ireland was cheaper than the more tourist based Republic of Ireland. We had to cross the Carrickarede rope bridge to get to the spot where my fiance is on the edge of the northern sea. Here’s a link: http://www.travelsinireland.com/northern/carrickarede.htm A bed and breakfast is cheaper and much more fun than hotel stays in Ireland.

Best deal found: Everything in Thailand is inexpensive. We took a 1 1/2 cab ride round trip, elephant show and then rides, river raft ride, buffet lunch, feed the elephants, and 2 stops at local craftsmen shops for $18/person. A nice hotel in Pattaya is $50/nt. Delicious pad thai $2, 2 hr massage $15. Be careful of ripoffs and your surroundings, but the people are service oriented, attentive, and the countryside is beautiful.
