Visiting Poland can be super cheap but what about its capital, Warsaw? Well, we decided to try our best to wine, dine and get cultured with a budget of just £100 each.
Could this be the most affordable European city break EVERRRR??!!
Important to note that we didn’t change our normal holidaying habits to keep this under budget because we wanted to show just how much it would cost to go, explore and enjoy a few treats.
I’ve just realised I never posted the link to my latest video!
What started out as a work trip to Istanbul and LA (I make radio docs for those of you who don’t know!) turned into an amazing getaway to Napa and Yosemite in California.
Now, with work paying for my flights, that was all taken care of but as for the day to day… Jeez. What happened to the days when the US was a cheap destination? It was PRICEY! Yet, we still managed to find a way to do it for less…
Following a rather raucous night at the Park Hyatt Tokyo (you can can immerse yourself in our sozzled experience here), James and I hopped on the bullet train and travelled a casual 504km to Osaka – a city infamous for its food and drink scene.
Which we were finally able to endure after what I would call one of the ‘top 10 hangovers of my life’. Hurrah!
Expect castles, street food and helpful morsels of information including how the bloody hell do you use a Japanese laundry?
Our first two days in Tokyo included yakitori in piss alley, maid cafes, the golden gai and even a whizz around the city that in no way resembled nintendo’s mario kart…
The ‘deadliest airline in the world’ has got its act together in recent years but many are still reluctant to fly Aeroflot.
Yet at £258 for a return flight to Tokyo, we were willing to give it a go.
So, just how bad was it?
Everyone loves to talk about how expensive Japan is and so I thought it would be a great chance to flex my money saving muscles and rustle up an epic trip of:
- 10+ nights
- A bullet train tour of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto
- A lush last night hotel stay
- Oh, and let’s throw in going at the PRICIEST time in the Japanese calendar – cherry blossom season!
First up, it’s all about the flight. AND WHAT A BARGAIN IT WAS!!!
After Ask a Local: New York was a ROARING SUCCESS (by which I mean James and I got very drunk and had a lovely time, thank you very much), we decided to let locals decide our day plans in London.
I’m really excited about filming a whole host of these (spoiler: just did one in Istanbul at the weekend!) and doing more videos about SAVING SOME DOLLA DOLLA.
