For years I have been keeping track of how much I spend on trips (you can see the overview here), so naturally I kept doing this as soon as I became a digital nomad. This month I’m sharing how much it costs to live in Thailand! We stayed in Thailand for almost a whole month (we had a 30 day visa), and spent 1 week in Bangkok, and three weeks in Chiang Mai. We didn’t do much in Chiang Mai. We went to Pai for a weekend, visited a festival and two temples, but other than that we worked a lot and lived a “normal” life. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! Curious about how much we spend during this month and how expensive Thailand exactly is? Come take a look!
My granddad has traveled a lot during his 85 years on this earth. He’s visited the United States and Canada many times, went to Egypt and discovered several countries in Africa (together with my grandmother). As a representative, he also traveled through all of Europe, from customer to fair, and still tells me the greatest stories about it. But he had never been to Berlin. And he didn’t really feel like traveling on his own. So I suggested we’d go together. And that’s how two years ago, me and my grandpa ended up in Berlin for five days.
I figured this would be a great time as any to share how much it costs to visit Berlin!
The good thing about a city trip is that you can make it as expensive as you want it to be. You can take the most expensive plane and sleep in every bridal suite you come across, but of course that’s not how I roll ;-) What’s nice about a budget city trip, is that it saves you even more money for yet another trip! And the more we can experience of this world, the happier it makes us. That’s why we have to make smart decisions when it comes to our budget, especially at expensive places. So today we’ll have a lesson of how to make the most of free things: 9 completely free things to do in Copenhagen!
Four days strolling through London, watching time go by in little coffee shops, dinner dates with friends, drifting from one museum to the next… the only thing that could’ve made it more perfect would be if I had Benedict Cumberbatch by my side! Oh well…always keep something to wish for, right? The first part of my wish came true though, when I went to London by myself for four days.
London is known to be not that cheap, and it definitely wasn’t. But I’ll show you how much I spent during my city trip in London and how you can reduce these costs yourself.
In the summer of 2013 I saved €800 on my stays in Bruges, Southern France and Barcelona. And I didn’t even have to sleep in a cardboard box under a bridge! By being a bit creative I saved up a whole extra holiday. By being on holiday! Say what?! I’ll tell you how you can save up this much on your accommodation as well.
My one-month road trip along the west coast of the United States was one of the most beautiful, fun and memorable things I’ve ever done. But yikes – also one of the most expensive ones. The USA is amongst the most expensive countries in the world to travel through, but that shouldn’t stop you from doing it… as it is positively gorgeous.
I had been looking forward to this road trip I’d be taking together with Mr. for a long time. After lots of planning we decided we needed about a month to see everything we wanted to see, plus another week to spend with family in Southern California. And then we started calculating. I’ll save you the time and effort: below I’ll share with you what the exact costs are for a road trip in the US.

One of my favorite accommodation options is Airbnb! In my opinion hardly anything beats staying in a local’s apartment, in the middle of a neighborhood full of locals – and for a good price too. Often these neighborhoods have more ambiance and authenticity than ‘tourist areas’, and personally I can spend hours just staring through the window and watching daily life go by. It’s so good! Today I have something even better for you: a discount code of €30!
It’s time for another budget list! It’s a bit different than last time, since I was with my dad this time. And my dad has the habit of grabbing my credit card away as soon as I offer to pay for something. So he paid for a few things, which made it a bit harder to keep a record. But I’ve done my best to keep an eye on the prices in Valencia, so here’s an overview of how much I spent in Valencia!
To be clear: for a city trip I count a trip of three days and two nights.
Venice, oh Venice… you’re such a dream. Until you look at the price tag, then you’re more of a nightmare. Funny enough I seem to have a love for expensive destinations, or so it seems. Not only did I move to London last year, I also continue to visit one expensive destination after the other. Unfortunately, Venice is no exception.
I always like the challenge of visiting an expensive destination in such a way that you get a luxurious experience for a smaller price. A little bit of flexibility, a little bit of playing with numbers… and before you know it you’ll be eating pizza along the canals of Venice while the sun is shining on your face. Priceless (but, ummm… don’t forget to pay). Here’s an overview of how much a weekend in Venice will cost you.
Visiting London definitely isn’t cheap, but if you’re a bit clever you won’t have to get rid of your prized organs just yet! As it turns out there’s a lot of free stuff to do in this world-famous city. If you combine that with a cheap hotel room and cheap street food your trip doesn’t have to be expensive at all. Here are my tips for 13 free things in London!
