if i was with friends/significant other then 5 low budget (value the experiences of just being together and making memories). if i was alone/solo traveling then honestly probably 2 luxury - use that time to totally decompress in a luxury resort or something

yeaa i feel like roughing it can be something to laugh off if you’re with friends but if you’re alone it might be more frustrating! i haven’t solo traveled but if i did i’d want nicer accommodation

Probably depends on what your budget vs luxury criteria are and how creative you are willing to get with planning. For comparison purposes - a group of friends did a two week trip to Africa for a safari and it was $10k a person. I planned almost the same vacation, with an extra week added to stay in a penthouse in Seychelles for like $1500 (flights, safari, driver, etc included). Only difference is i didn’t sleep in a tent while in Safari… we left every night and slept in a house lol.

I went in 2018 so hopefully i remember. I think it was JFK -> AMS -> JRO. JRO ->ADD->SEZ. Same route the way back but AMS -> BOS before NYC. I believe i flew delta to AMS, then it switched to KLM. We stayed on Eden Island in Seychelles and there are a ton on Airbnb. We went in January which I’m told is the off season, someone else in the group booked the stay so i don’t have the particular unit. Outside of the safari, Kikuletwa hot springs in Tanzania is amazing. The Four Points there is also a great place to relax and incredibly updated - not what i expected. Lots of awesome hiking in Seychelles - i think Anse Major was the one we took that gets you to a secluded beach. They have market days one night every week where the locals all just show up at the beach with homemade booze and party. It was so much fun.

Can I do 1 luxury and 2 budget? Compromise?

like

2 luxury vacays 🥰 also considering the fact that it’s the most I’d get in PTO.

I would take the ones that made me feel comfortable. I don't like when my family goes on vacations and stays in a motel. I'd save up the money to go somewhere and stay in places that make me comfortable and happy.

Yes you bet.

5 low budget. You can still do so much national and international travel on a low budget, you just need to be better at planning and scouting out deals.

I am finally ready to make my move into consulting. I was on CPT, and got my H1B approved this year. I am looking to pursue a life long goal of being a consultant. I am targeting MBB and tier 2 firms. Will anyone be willing to spare 15-30mins of their time to connect with me to give insights about consulting life, job search strategies and general advice? Please help a brother out, and I'll return the favor :)
