How to save money traveling in Europe (and possibly elsewhere)

My young, poor, jobless college graduate friend who worked hard for Bernie running the local office (that's how I met him), took his girlfriend to Italy and the Dolomites, and to Amsterdam
on a 10 day shoestring trip.

They just got back brought me a few tulip bulbs and shared wonderful tales from their travels.

My most important questions though concerned money. How in the hell did you do this on 30 bucks a day? Each. For everything, food and travel and lodging?

The answer was:
"All you have to do is to say "Fuck Trump" and offer a high five.
We had a bus driver who went into the next bus and asked the driver there to take us with him for free.
People reduced their rates, and gave us food."

"It was easy.
Next time he said I'll put it on a T-shirt and go to Paris."

3. Trump has made traveling in Europe much more expensive with the falling dollar.

But I'm not sure most people notice. Your money will not go as far right now, and I think that is an important consideration for some.

8. Late comment, I just saw this..

What a wonderful idea....Trump inadvertently saving people money.

wonder if they charge more if an American does NOT say they are against Trump. That would be so fitting if so.
