I said this year was going to be all about being happy and seeking out new adventures, so, with that in mind I booked a mini-European trip for myself.
It started out as a simple trip to see my Dad. He lives in Portugal and I took advantage of “the world being on sale” and bought a flight there for £16.99. However, Ryanair was so cheap one way, that I was tempted to look at where you can fly from faro… Turns out your options this time of year are limited! However, another £16.99 flight to Amsterdam had my name written all over it so I booked a one way flight there…
But then it seemed rude not to look where you can get to from Amsterdam. Ooo. Look. I’ve never been to Prague… A £19.99 flight seemed to be calling to me…so I booked a one way flight there…
BUT THEN! To fly home from Prague was £104 yet to fly from Prague to Rome was £17.98… So again… Frankly it seemed rude NOT to!
So ok, I called it quits after Rome as my flight back to London was only £18.00 and although the flights are cheap, hotel costs do add up!
Yet I’m excited to be fulfilling my promise to myself to live life my way and to go where the cheapest flight takes me! I’m not going for long and I’ve got worked lined up for the day after I return… It’s the perfect guilt free indulgence I need!
Please feel free to leave any tips for things to do, places to eat and trails to stomp in any of the locations! I shall be sure to update you on what I get up to… But until then I’m going to finish this glass of bubbles and hopefully sneak my slightly-too-large-hand-luggage past some moody looking flight attendants!

Cool stuff! I should plan for something like this this year. Where in Portugal are you going? I can only recommend stuff there. I’ll ask some Italian friends what’s to do in Rome. **
Your genius knows no bounds. And by genius, I mean cheapness. And by no bounds…… I mean many bounds (Mainly based on cost). Have a great time!
Ha what a weird thing to bother writing. Why spend money getting there?? I’d rather spend my money on a great hotel and doing new things when I’m there… But that’s just me!
This is great Kate, I would really like to copy you on this. I hope all is good with you.
Thank you Andrew! You should! It was fantastic!! I am very well thank you. I hope you are too x
