I want to travel the world. And I’m slowly but surely starting to do so. I recently went on my first overseas trip to Portugal and it was amazing. However, I also have student loans and I’m not raking in 6 figures (yet!). So I have to plan and budget accordingly in order to do what I love: travel.
For me and many others, hostels are the way to be able to save money while traveling. Accommodations are often the biggest killer for travelers. It can be your biggest expense, more than flights, food and activities combined. Luckily we live in a world with more options. There are Airbnb’s, which you can get for great deals, especially in Europe. However, even that can be out of your price range. Thus, I decided to dabble into the world of hostels for the first time. If you’d like to know about what to expect, keep reading.
When I booked my flight to Porto, I knew I wouldn’t stay in the city the entire time. Although one of Portugal’s largest cities, I wanted to take advantage of the abundance of day trips possible to do from Porto. One of those day trips includes Braga. Braga, known as a religious hub of Portugal, is a beautiful city that is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the north of Portugal.
If you’d like to read more about my time in Braga and what to expect during your day trip to Braga, please keep reading.
If you read a previous post of mine you know that I’m going to be going to Portugal. Depending if I decide to post this on a Monday or on my regular Tuesday schedule, I may be traveling to Porto TODAY. (Hello, future me). Portugal is probably one of the top 5 European countries I want to explore and I’ll finally be tapping into it. I’ll be there for just under two weeks and I have a whole list of ideas to do.
Who knows if I’ll make time for everything on my list because I don’t want to be too strict with my itinerary. But nevertheless, I’d like to give a rough outline of what I plan to do during my time in the beautiful Porto. My goal is to enjoy my time in Porto but also take advantage of its prime location to take day trips around the area. So, if you’d like to find out what I’d like to explore, keep reading.
Bonjour everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Or welcome, if you are new. One of the primary reasons I started this blog was to express my desire to travel the world. As well as to have a place to document my future travels. As of now, I haven’t been to many places. But the traveling love and itch for adventure is still very strong. Due to platforms like Pinterest, I am able to discover many places to add to my list of places to see. By the time I am 30 I’d like to say I’ve been to every single continent. Ambitious? Maybe. Doable? Absolutely!
You may have read my previous post about Spanish cities I can’t wait to visit. Europe in general is the continent I am most looking forward to exploring in my life. France happens to be one country with an abundance of cities, towns and villages that look like they can be out of a storybook. In fact, some places are rumored to have inspired classic Disney films like Beauty and the Beast. In this post I am going to document the 10 cities/towns/villages in France I can’t wait to visit. I’m not going to include Paris because well, duh, it’s a must. Plus, everyone knows of it.
