Four hours, three trains and a 5 AM wake up call later, my boyfriend and I ended up in Bristol city centre for a small city trip—the first time either of us had ever done any kind of adventuring like this.
The 2018 Summer will be over in about two months. There is still plenty of fun to be had and some of it can come pretty cheap! Maybe you're still trying to enjoy this year’s record hot weather outdoors, instead of in a motel or hotel. You could be on the last few days driving home from vacation and would like to cut costs. If you're anything like me, you just need to get away from civilization for a little bit. Whichever it is, you need a financial break. I know a park just north of Allegany State Park that can offer you a break for free. I have gone there myself and it's pretty isolated, but don't go alone! It's rumored to be haunted, which is perfect for those who like a ghost hunt all year round!
Iceland's tourism industry has been booming in recent years, and it's no surprise why. It's a magnificent country with breathtaking waterfalls, marvelous volcanos, and miles of vast farmland. The only downside of this country? It can be VERY expensive. But, if you're smart with your money, it is possible to travel to Iceland on a budget. I took a 7-day trip to Iceland recently, and all in all, I spent around $1350. How did I do it? Let me share my tips. :)
It's the UK's hottest recorded heatwave in 123 years (at least a meme I just saw on Instagram says so) and most of us are at a loss on how to deal with it. Do we stuff ice cubes down our bras before work? Do we lie face down on the grass and cry about the CO2 shortage that's pillaging our Prosecco supply? Fear not, my hot friends. Because a solution has been waiting for us all this time, and that solution is Brighton.
The idea for me to go to North Ireland with my friend was a rather "spur of the moment" decision.
My husband and I just made an unexpected trip to Stockholm this past weekend. I needed to get a new Residency Permit Card after receiving a permanent residency and Gothenburg (nearest migration agency) was booked until after the summer. So queue an impromptu trip when we didn't have the money saved up. We knew that if we went, we were going to stay for the weekend.
The first few weeks of traveling were all so eye-opening. Where do I go? How do I get there? Should I learn some words of their language? What is the currency like? Where do I book my accommodation? All of these questions became a part of my everyday life so quickly, and got easier and easier as time went on. All of a sudden, it was second nature to be preparing a day or two ahead before I wanted to move on.
New York is the dream destination for many people, but often is perceived as out of their price range and unfeasible. With bright lights, thousands of high end shops, beautiful parks, and the famous New York hotdog, it is clear where the desire to visit this vibrant and amazing place comes from.
So a few months ago, I wrote a post on my blog about how to find cheap accommodation. Accommodation is one of the biggest costs of traveling. Being a budget traveler means I need to find as cheap accommodation as I can. Here are some of the things that I try and do to keep my accommodation costs as low as possible. I know that some cheap options are not for everyone, so here are some potential choices with the advantages and disadvantages of using them.
Cancun, Mexico seems like the perfect dream vacation destination with crystal blue water and palm trees swaying in the warm, balmy breeze. Mexico has a rich and beautiful culture and delicious cuisine and Cancun, part of Mexico known as the Mayan Riveria, is the ideal destination in which to bask in all that Mexico has to offer. A dream vacation destination like Cancun however, can also come with a giant price tag. Your dream vacation can be more affordable than you imagine.
