For vacations, I’ve always been the kind of person who likes to spend as little as possible, but one of my friends likes to go all out. He will fly to his destination on a first class flight, stay in a luxury suite, and eat at the fanciest restaurants. This year he wanted me to go with him to Greece, so I started planning my budget for the trip. My friend told me that he would pay for everything, so I didn’t have to budget, and that we would be staying in one of the Mykonos Villas for the entirety of the trip.
Although my friend was footing the bill for everything, I still was hesitant about spending as much as possible. I didn’t want to seem greedy. My friend picked just the right place, because it was certainly a luxury spot. The interior alone was enough to make my jaw hit the floor, but once I saw the pool outside, I nearly fainted. My friend is used to seeing places like this all of the time, but for me, it’s an extremely rare occasion. When we weren’t having room service, we went out to eat and had a feast fit for a king.
If there’s anything that I’ve learned from my time in Greece with my friend, it’s that maybe I should splurge every once in a while. You only have one life to live, and if you don’t take the time to treat yourself, then you’ll just waste what you have. I probably won’t be going on the luxury route for every trip, but I’ll at least consider putting in a little extra money. The next trip my friend is planning is a trip to Japan. I would love to go to some of the higher end restaurants there.
