8 Things to Do in Amsterdam

In 2017, I visited the wonderful city of Amsterdam.

Back in July, my partner and I visited Rome for the first time. Everyone I had spoken to who had previously visited was quick to warn me of the city’s expense, but I was determined to make the most of our four-night trip without breaking the bank. During our stay, we were able to visit all of the must-see sights, dine where we wanted and even fit in a trip to the nearby beach whilst only spending around € 250.00 each.

Dublin: A City Break on a Budget

In February this year, I travelled to Dublin with three of my friends. We stayed for three nights, Saturday to Tuesday, paying £130 each for our flights and accommodation and spending less than £200 for the duration of our trip.
