Once upon a time, Winter was the season we used to travel the most. As full-time students, we had a whole month between semesters to use for travel! Winter is off-season for most of Europe, making it perfect for the way we travel! We always prefer to avoid the crowds, and our low budget also thanks us for choosing the most affordable time to travel. However, now that both of us are full-time workers (with no vacation time) and still students, we can only travel during the weekends. And traveling during the weekend has nothing budget-friendly about it. Nevertheless, we were able to visit two new places which we are eager to share for some Winter travel inspiration!
If, like us, you’re in the northern hemisphere, you are probably counting the down the days until Spring. These last few weeks of Winter have been making us especially nostalgic for sunny days and dry pavements. It has been raining non-stop in Lisbon for more days than I can count with my two hands! We know rain is necessary, but it’s not very practical for city-life. That’s why we’ve been thinking so much about the following destinations, which are absolutely perfect for Spring travel!
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie… That’s Amore! Is this the song that comes to your mind when you think of this country? Amore is the Italian word for love and yes, it’s easy to fall in love with Italy! We’ve all seen it in the movies, in our history books and if you’re like us, on our dreams! We’re not the only ones who dream about travel destinations, are we? We finally made our dreams come true and a lot of things were exactly how we imagined… Some were not. In the great spirit of sharing, here are some things you should know before you visit Italy!
Portugal is small in size, but there’s no shortage of things to do and views to appreciate. For that reason, it may be difficult to actually decide on which ones to include on your itinerary when you visit our country. That’s why in this post we decided to compile 5 viewpoints in Portugal that you absolutely can’t miss! Plus, they are free, so there’s really no excuse not to go.
We’ve been dreaming of exploring Zakopane since we lived in Warsaw and spent our Erasmus days in Poland. When we finally did, we were astonished by this amazing town in the South of Poland. We’ve gathered 28 photos that we’re sure will ignite your wanderlust and make you add Zakopane to your dream destinations as well. Yes, we believe you need to visit Zakopane!
The more we travel, the more we come home filled with exciting stories to tell, but most of our friends questions’ aren’t really related to that time we stayed in a scary under-construction hostel in Riga that offered free nights in exchange for a 10 rating on Booking. You know what their questions are? How can you afford it? How much did it cost? New York was the city that raised the most eyebrows: “Did you really not win the lottery?”. The (unfortunate) answer is no! But the good news is that New York on a budget is possible! We are here to give you some answers on a detailed budget of how much we (really!) spent on a week in the Big Apple.
