I’m Lucy. This beauty is my travel blog. Being an expert (some may say a bit of an extremest) at travelling on the cheap, I want to share my euro-saving tips with anyone interested in broadening their horizons, but not their credit limit.
At the moment, I’m a student studying Commerce and French.This lead me to spend a year in Paris; the city of lights! While I was living here, I scrapped enough funds to go explore some amazing cities such as Amsterdam, London, Modena, Berlin and Prague. Using a combination of research and experience, none of these trips broke the bank and I was all the better for having gone on them.
Even before this year abroad, motivated by Scout trips and general interest, I had spread my wings and visited countries such as Sweden, Poland, Norway, Spain, other French regions, Italy, Switzerland, the U.K. and Portugal. For the most part, I managed to stick to my low-cost plans but sadly, I also made some pretty impressive mistakes that cost me a bundle! I’ll be talking about both elements in my posts, sharing with you some handy “whats” and some major “what nots”.
Having friends on various continents, I’ll also have the occasional guest post giving you advice on cheap and cheerful travel around Australia, America and Asia… and possibly more, should I sweet talk the others into writing articles for me!
In short, this blog will help you further your enjoyment of travel and go far on Shallowpockets
