As much as I love Paris, it became impossible to justify living there, spending thousands on a tiny apartment. I eventually left once I realised how much cheaper it was to travel full-time in the Balkans than to live in France.
I know not everyone wants to pack up all their belongings and travel full-time. But picking a budget destination means you can either travel longer or more often or just spend less on the holidays you get to take.
So that's why I put together my latest post, to help you find the cheapest cities to visit in the cheapest countries in Europe. Please share it if you find it useful.
I've been working a couple of days per week in a co-working place in Fremantle. If you're interested in seeing what the port city is like, follow me on Instagram. I usually post stories from my morning beach walk and of the beautiful heritage buildings in the city centre.
CHEAPEST COUNTRIES TO VISIT IN EUROPE
Last month I shared my top destinations for Europe this year and the best time to go.
In my latest post, I've written about the cheapest countries in Europe and which cities I recommend visiting when travelling on a budget (or at any time really).
I feel like leaving out Serbia might have been a mistake but I still haven't been and know so little about it. I do hope to visit this year though.
I also omitted Kosovo even though I have been and know it's cheap. I just don't feel like there is much to see there. Am I wrong?
BRUSSELS FOOD TOUR
While food tours can be fun and delicious, I don't think they're great value for money. In this post, I created a self-guided food tour for Brussels, one of Europe's great foodie cities. Read the post.
DOLPHINS IN SARDINIA
I started a new series on the blog called, 'Two-Minute Tuesday'. These are short posts with either a quick story, interesting travellers to follow or travel apps you might like. In this Two-Minute Tuesday, I share the time I went swimming with dolphins in Sardinia. Read the post.
Here in Perth, the trend at the moment is aerial shark photography. I always knew we had a lot of sharks off the coast but I had no idea just many. Hammerhead sharks are everywhere! In another Two-Minute Tuesday, I share some great shark photographers. Read the post.
Before I took my one year break from the blog, I was in the middle of a huge post about free things to do in Budapest. I'm working on finishing that now so I can finally share it.
