7:00 am - 8:00 am    | Travel to Charles de Gaulle Terminal I
8:00 am - 11:20 am  | Check in, breakfast and wait to board
11:20 am                   | Flight from Paris, France to Taipei, Taiwan via Hello Kitty themed Eva Air Airbus

Here is our estimated expense in Europe for three weeks. We used some of the wedding gifts we received which helped us a lot! (Thanks Ninongs and Ninangs!) Aside from that, we got the money from Mike's savings. I didn't even spend my own money during the whole duration of our trip! (hehehe! Perks of having a husband that knows how to save!) 

Included here is our airfare expense and visa fee. I also included souvenirs we bought, snacks and other gadgets we purchased. (Didn't include the LV bag and shoes we bought though). If you will not splurge on shopping and food you will definitely spend lesser than this.
