I have been making a computation of my expenses in vacation. When I go abroad with one companion it looks like it is cheaper than going on a vacation in a local resort with 10 companions. This year we have taken 2 vacations already with 10 of my friends. Now I am planning of going to Hongkong with only 1 friend which can save me money. But the big difference is the fun - it it not much fun when there are only 2 of us unlike in a trip with 11 of us.
