Adding another "Overheard at work", this time from my boyfriend.
We just got back from a fabulous "fancy backpacking" (carrying all our stuff in backpacks rather than suitcases, but renting private apartments rather than hostels) trip to Budapest, Vienna, Zurich, and Paris. We travel frequently, but don't spend that much since we rent cheap apartments with kitchens and cook, plan trips around sales, don't have luggage, don't buy stuff, etc.
Yesterday he was telling one of his co-workers about it, and they asked, "So, are you broke now?", and he was like "Um... no...". I guess the norm is to come back from travelling penniless? It was kind of funny because the conversation happened on the same day our net worth finally crossed the $100,000 barrier.
