Paris with NYT’s Frugal Traveler
Usually the New York Times travel section is reserved for high end vacations with equally high budgets. As much as I would like to go on Argentinian wine tasting tours, they’re not really within my price range, much like most of the stuff in the NYT. But the newspaper doesn’t completely forget about us budget-conscious types, there is after all, the Frugal Traveler. Much like The Minimalist believes that good dining can, and should, be hassle free, Matt Gross (aka the Frugal Traveler) believes that you don’t always have to have a bank account full of euros to enjoy yourself abroad.
Currently he’s taking on Europe, the continent that has recently come to be said with an ominous undertone on account of the euro to dollar rate. In his Grand Tour he’s spending 12 weeks all over Europe and working with less than 100 euros a day. New columns and videos are posted every Thursday, and in this week’s installment he writes about Paris, and opting for staying in a Parisian apartment and getting to know the neighborhood rather than oggle at the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower. Good tips and good writing!
