It always sounds pretentious to say that you’ve done a fair share of travelling, however I sorta have in the recent past, in the last year anyway. I’ve been on a bit of a budget the last few years due to being a student and having rent to pay, now I’m going to be on an even tighter budget being an intern living in London.
I never wanted to compromise my love of travelling, I worked hard to make sure I could still travel as much as I could. Here’s a couple of tips that have made it possible for me to see parts of the world, it doesn’t always have to be expensive.
1) If you can, be flexible.
On destination or time of flight.
I never planned to visit Oslo, we were looking elsewhere, but the flights were dirt cheap. I’m so glad to have gone and taken in a country and city I’d never been to before. I’m doing a similar thing again soon visiting Milan.
If you’re just craving a mini-break, this is definitely the way to go. Utilise the online world, my favourite thing to use is Ryan Air’s fare finder which tells you the cheapest flights each month. Ryan Air is far from the height of luxury, but for a couple of hours you can deal with limited leg room.
