Summer Plans


  • I have only been to two places on this list, Italy and Portugal. The other ones are on my list.

    I love Italy but do not think it is a great place to visit on a budget. Especially in the summer when it is packed with tourist.

    Portugal is a great country and very affordable. I spent a lot less than I expected. They also have some of the best hostels that I have ever stayed in.

      Wow, awesome! thanks for taking the time to comment on this. I think I might give Italy a miss, or just do a sneaky weekend trip there, if I can find some decent flights. I don’t want to wind up “hating” it because I can’t afford to enjoy it properly.

      Great to hear Portugal has some good hostels, they can make all the difference to a trip.

    if you get the chance to go id really recommend going to greece! The people there are just the friendliest ive ever met. Its just such a beautiful country.. Theres so many amazing places to see there.. Plus its not that far away from greece! And even though its not on your list id also recommmend considering going to scandinavia! Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities ive ever been to. And its so different to all the other countries you want to go to. On the other hand i think both countries are not very cheap.. Croatia is lovely aswell, i loved the sea there – so perfectly blue! Probably croatia is a better choice if you dont want to spend a lot of money :)

    I’d definitely recommend Morocco…It’s cheap once you’re there and it will totally blow your mind. It depends on what kind of experience you’re looking for but it’s definitely the most ‘exotic’ and adventurous on that list. I’d suggest you spend more time in Fez and Essouira rather than focus on Marrakesh (It’s very touristy) but it all depends on your budget etc :) What a wonderful conundrum to face! Hope you figure it all out in good time and I look forward to following your adventures! x
