Low Budget

May 4th, 2010 smpian11

It is much much cheaper to travel in Europe than in the US, thanks to Easyjet, Ryanair and the likes. I just survived the ultimate low-budget experience: a very very cheap flight from a city ‘near’ Strasbourg to a city ‘near’ Lisbon; and after all the hassle I cannot say it was not worth it. But once I work there is no way I’m doing budgets again.

Behold the ultimate low-budget experience: one tram ride to the bus stop, one bus ride from bus stop to the Kehl train station, two trains rides to the Baden Baden Station, one bus ride to the Karlsruhe-Baden airport, one plane ride from Karlsruhe, Germany to Porto, Portugal, one taxi ride to from the Porto airport to the Porto bus station, one bus ride from Porto to Lisbon, and voila! That is low-budge for you. For a total duration of 9 hours (from 5am to 2pm) you save about 150 Euros and lose 7 hours of your life. If you don’t work and want to see as much as you can, it’s worth it. I do wonder though, how can those people who work for a living bear the pain and fatigue? It takes me two days to fully recover.

By the way, Lisbon is beautiful, possibly my favorite city in Europe, alongside Barcelona. I mean, Vienna is also magical, but Lisbon…Lisbon is heaven on earth because the weather doesn’t suck as it does in Vienna, London, or even Paris. From what I’ve seen and based on where I’m from (the Caribbean), Portugal is the closest to home. You also cannot beat the Latin culture (Spain, Portugal, Italy and the former colonies), so warm and lively, how can you settle for cold and arrogant? I cannot. Of course this is my own personal opinion :P

I’m off to Manchester again tomorrow (yes it’s horrible, but my boyfriend did not consider the weather when choosing a school and I have to pay the consequences), and then I have two weeks of FINALSSSSSS.

Eh oui, c’est presque la fin!
