To be clear, that's the total travel budget for both of you (so
essentially work on your personal budget being US$1100 if you're both
coming from Europe).

You won't have time during the summit weekend to go and meet other
Debian people around the valley area (or if you do, you'll be missing
the reason you're there), but there's usually a number of debian folk
at the summit via other orgs - I've been several times myself, but
never actually for Debian.
