France is well known by the English for frogs legs, great wine and garlic snails. But I will most remember France for it being the starting place for my grand Western European Tour. With cheap ferries from Dover, UK, when I had to leave the country in a hurry due to the small print of my travel insurance, I found myself in France armed with a 14 year old Nissan X-trail and a blow up bed.
As daunting as the idea of travelling alone may be – everyone should experience it at least once in their lives. You might think that you’d never have the confidence to set off out into the world alone, but once you’ve taken that first step, you’ll realise how much you control your own destiny.
Bordeaux is a UNESCO World Heritage Site before it is a city. Why? Because all of the city centre and a lot of its surrounding areas are UNESCO sites. Not only is Bordeaux known for its classical and neo-classical architecture but it is also world famous for its wine. But being in a cultured city such as Bordeaux in France doesn’t need to put you out of pocket. That is why I have found these 10 free things to do whilst you are in Bordeaux on a budget and have put it together as my Bordeaux tourism guide.
There have been a lot of reports in the media about Ryanair splitting up passengers who do not pay for an upgrade. This is my recent experience.
I have flown Ryanair many times, and although I am ranting away about them, I will most likely fly with them again. Why? Because they are a budget airline and I am a budget traveller. I like cheap flights to great places. I love a great deal, and if you know how to handle them properly, Ryanair will give you just that . . .cheap flights.
If you have succumbed to the call of the backpack, you may have considered the essentials. But before whizzing off to a brave new world with your trusty passport and foreign money, you may wish to consider those little extra that can make travelling around just a little bit less basic?
So it seems a common thing for every travel blogger out there to round up their year with a post about where they have been that year. However, for me this was done in November which is when I celebrated a year of travel therefore I was left wondering what I could now say about my year of travel. Then as I was eating the leftover chocolates from Christmas, it occured to me! I have learnt so much in the past year of travel and there are so many things I want to tell you about. So I have decided to write this post about what travel has taught me giving examples of things that have happened in the last year.
I am just going to come out and say it. I really think you should visit La Rochelle in France. The delightful coastal city of La Rochelle lies between Nantes and Bordeaux. However, visiting a city can be an expensive trip which is why I am going to tell you about these 10 free things to do in La Rochelle in France.
The beautiful town of Pornic in France is just a day trip away from Nantes. Being just an hour’s drive away, you would be crazy not to take the opportunity to visit this very attractive little town. Filled with history from its ancient past, there are plenty of things to do and places to explore. That is why I have come up with this travel guide of Pornic.
The historic city of Angers is in western France. Situated in the Loire Valley it is a popular place to use as a base to explore the surrounding areas. But visiting a city can really tug on your purse strings which is why I have tried and tested these 10 free things to do in Angers, France. It’s just a train ride away from Paris and London; it is well worth visiting even if just to see its Gothic Angevin architecture style. Angers was the fourth city I visited on my grand tour of Europe where I lived and slept in my car.
The opportunity to travel is one that everybody should have. Seeing the world is something that can open your eyes to different cultures, beautiful places, and fascinating pieces of history. Of course, whilst you may want to travel, you may not think that you have the resources to travel cheap. You only have so much money in the bank and you can only take so much time off work. How will you possibly see the world?
