I couldn’t help to think of Hans Christian Andersen and his fairytales during my short trip to Copenhagen. You can understand how this city became his inspiration for his magical stories. Castles, princesses and narrow mysterious streets all come to life in Copenhagen.
Surely, there is no right or wrong on travelling but there are definitely better ways. A tourist visits a place with a group and a tour guide. Following a checklist that need to be ticked off. They don’t visit a place to explore it. A few pictures are more than enough. They are either too afraid or they don’t know how much more is there on travelling. Travellers are trying to get lost. To observe the local life and the real country behind the travel guides.
What if I told you that travelling across Europe can be cheaper than a restaurant meal? You’re probably thinking that I am goofing on you and I don’t blame you. A few years back, travelling around Europe by plane used to be a very expensive hobby. Today catching a plane from London to Rome for a weekend is easier than ever before. But before jumping into that, let’s rewind a bit
If your travelling was mainly partying and drinking there isn’t much I can help you with. Though, if you traveled with a purpose and believe that your travel experiences will be valuable in your future career but you don’t know how to include them in your resume this is an article that might worth your time.
Most people harbor a deep rooted desire to explore this Earth, but many of those people will never view travel as a priority. There are any number of things that can hold us back in life; but overcoming those obstacles is worthwhile. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and cannonball into the adventure at least once in your life. Traveling can open your eyes to new experiences if you only make it happen. If this boldness excites you as it does me perhaps it is time to reevaluate your own priorities.
Traveling gives sparkle to many people’s life. It fills them with unique experiences, exposes them to new cultures and makes them see things from different perspectives. On this I think we all agree. But everything has a cost. Traveling can also be expensive and very tiring after a long period of time.
Once in a while you just need some time off to settle down for a while. Time to find a routine, work hard and save enough to hop on a plane and jet off to your next destination.
London is notorious for being a very expensive city and it really is. If you are travelling on the budget, the first moment you get into the city you might get overwhelmed by all the overpriced street and restaurant food. It might look this way at the first glimpse but this isn’t the rule.
As in every city, London has tons of free attractions and they are just waiting to be discovered. I agree, some attractions can be a bit pricey. You can’t visit a city though and skip everything though.
When you are traveling on a shoestring budget in countries such as India, street food is a good way to coordinate your wallet with your desire to sample local delights. You can find a great variety of food vendors on every corner and with prices under $1, I dare you to resist. In most cases, these vendors specialize in cooking one particular food, which makes their dishes more often than not, irresistibly delicious.
I was always fascinated with other languages. Amazed about the different accents, hand gestures and vowels which sounds seem physically impossible to pronounce at first. It somehow gives you a brief taste of the country itself.
I tried many times to learn a new language. French, Italian, Japanese, Romanian. I failed in all of them. I failed miserably in every single one of them. It was like a gypsy witch cursed me and I was on a quest to go find the cure.
