We do not consider ourselves as purely low cost travelers, but we always try to make the most of our trips at the best price. Less money spent in a trip means more money for the next one, and we are two travel lovers, so this is enough reason to save as much as possible. We have already written a bit about our winter trip to Venice on January this year. Venice is not a cheap destination, quite the opposite, but there are still some ways to save a little money during your trip. Accommodation, transport, museums, so many churches, food… Here you have some tips to visit Venice on a budget.
In less than 2 hours driving from Barcelona, you can reach one of the most important wetlands in south of Europe: the Ebre delta. You don’t need to travel to Vietnam to see incredible rice fields under a sunset, or a fisherman throwing the net for fishing while thousands of flamingos start flying. You don’t need to go to Thailand to sleep in a wooden roof house surrounded by palm trees in front of a virgin beach. You have all of this in one single place in Europe. The Ebre Delta in Catalonia is still being discovered by travellers from all around the world and it is one of the best places to eat paella and seafood!
Two weeks ago we went to Venice. As every year we organize a winter trip and considering how crowded is Venice the rest of the year, we thought it would be a fantastic option. We visited the city without doing any queue in any tourist hotspot and we could see and take photos of San Marco square with no tourists in it! No cruises, cold and humit air and a special atmosphere full of mistery and romance among the winter mist of the lagoon is what we found. Put an extra ingredient: Christmas Time.
We think that gastronomy is an important part of every culture and country and, thus, we try to eat traditional food in each of our trips. When we started planning our trip to Namibia, we though that several types of meat would be offered at a good price due to the wildlife of the country. And, indeed, that was the case. In fact, almost all camping sites have a braai (barbecue in Afrikaans) available for guests to prepare their own meal. But in Namibia, particularly on the coastal side, you will also find good fish and seafood. Do you want to know which was the best meal we had during our trip? Just keep reading!
Barcelona is a never ending city regarding the number of experiences you can have. And if we talk about food this fact becomes amplified. Barcelona has a long history that started more than 2,000 years ago and it has always been a trading centre where interaction between cultures and beliefs enriched the city and its inhabitants. One of the main characteristics of every culture is food. What can you expect from Barcelona, irrigated with the Mediterranean charm and spotted with multicultural expressions from all around the world?
