Under $100 / Africa

No one thinks of Egypt without thinking of Cairo. This world-renowned city is the capital and the metropolitan area is one of the largest in Africa.


Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Alfredo Restaurant. They offer great vegetarian and vegan options for a reasonable price. The cuisine is Middle Eastern so get those taste buds ready for some spice. Breakfast is less expensive than dinner and lunch and should run no more than $15.

Begin the day at the massive Egyptian Museum. This building is home to the most extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world, including the tomb of King Tut. The entry fee is only $7.

Eat your fill at the Indira Indian Restaurant. This spot is great for those looking to add some Indian food to the trip. Reviewers rave this is the best place to get it. The restaurant is also vegetarian-friendly. The lunch menu isn’t too expensive and will reasonably cost someone around $15.

After lunch visit Old Cairo and Islamic Cairo. Both neighborhoods teem with the history of Egypt and are enjoyable to walk through.

The hummus at this restaurant is fantastic. Stop by for a great dinner on the Nile. There are hanging lights that keep the area well lit as the sun goes down over Egypt’s most famous river. The price is a bit steeper considering the location, but budgeting around $35 per person should suffice.

How To Make the Most of the Middle Seat

Being stuck in the middle seat on an airplane is hardly anyone’s first choice, but for travelers who aren’t willing to shell out extra bucks to choose their own seat, the middle seat may be randomly assigned to them. However, there are a few ways to make the most of this situation and breeze through the flight with the most comfortable experience possible.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
