Before visiting the Greek Island of Santorini, I’d heard from various people that Santorini was expensive. I’m not a traditional ‘budget traveller’ as such, but I do travel on a budget and trying to research how much it was going to cost was a bit of a nightmare. There’s only really information for the luxury budgets (the typical cave rooms and infinity pools associated with Santorini) or the extreme other end of Santorini on a budget, with all the cheap places to eat and free things to do. There’s not really any ‘mid range’ information for a Santorini budget!
Who doesn’t love a little slice of paradise? On the surface, Turks and Caicos looks like a pretty expensive Caribbean destination, and I’m not going to lie, it kind of is! BUT it is possible to do Turks and Caicos on a budget and I’m going to give you a breakdown of the cost of my trip with some tips and tricks on how I saved myself money!
In the UK I had been with the same phone company ever since I was 11 years old…roughly 15 years! It may have changed hands several times (One-to-One, T-Mobile, EE) but I was always happy with the service I received. I’ve been in America for 5 months and I’m already onto my 2nd phone company. Before I emigrated, I had bought an iPhone, just thinking that it’d be simple, I’d get to America and just put in an American Sim Card and away I go! If only it was that simple!
Venice was a place I have had my sights on for a while. As I sat on the boat taking me from the car park to the main part of Venice, we passed 4 HUGE cruise ships. My heart sank, I dislike being barged out of the way by crowds that act like they can’t even see you and knowing that the city has 1000s of tiny alley ways, I thought it was going to be a disaster waiting to happen! I make it no secret that I don’t like city crowds…BUT I’m obsessed with water. So no matter what the Venice Gondola price was going to be, I HAD to do it!
