Easy Ways To Travel Around Amsterdam For Cheap

Tuesday, 26 February 2019

Hello my lovelies i hope you are all having a great week or weekend. In this post I am going to let you know how you can travel to Amsterdam for under £150pp. So in December me and my husband travelled to Amsterdam for the weekend. We had such an amazing trip and we saw so much. The best part about this trip is we travelled super cheap. 

So how did we do it ? 

we booked the flights with Easyjet as most of the time they are the cheapest. We only paid £50 each for the flights there and back. This included the flights the hand luggage  and picking where we sat. I personally think this is amazing. 

we decided rather than pay over £500 to stay in the centre pf Amsterdam we would stay near the airport and we only paid £70 for the nights. Yes! only £70. Our stay was amazing and the room we had had everything you needed. The other great thing was that this hotel came with a free shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel. Yes! free!! this also saved us money on transfers.  

So getting into the centre of Amsterdam is also super easy to do. The train stations from the Airport to the centre is in the airport. We paid £20 each for a two day ticket from the airport to the centre. The train station is super easy to get around as well. 

so we just walked and to be fair most things are very close to each other. we spend the whole day Saturday walking around the centre, taking in Amsterdam beauty. The best things about this is that walking is free. We walked around Saturday taking loads of photos and we only took 30Euros with us. Most people said we are made and this wouldn't be enough but we managed to make do. We found this little pasty shop and for breakfast we had a coffee to share and a BEAUTIFUL TASTY! apple pie, This only cost around 4euros. When in Amsterdam we knew we didn't want to go and do anything you needed to pay for. We only went there to walk around and look at the views. For lunch we found this beautiful little cafe and we had a pizza to share, this only cost 8euros. I also picked up a post card for only 1euro. Then for dinner we spent around 10euros Mc Donalds and it was amazing! 

Unfortunately I got a massive cold Saturday night and I woke up sunday very very ill so we didn't go into the city centre, I spend the day in the hotel till 12 and then we went back to the airport and waited. Although I was very very ill Sunday I had an amazing time in Amsterdam. 

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post and if you are thinking you can not afford to go to Amsterdam because people tell you it costs 100s and 100s! don't listen you can always do things cheaper. 



Noteworthy Places To Visit In Orlando Florida

Sunday, 17 February 2019

  So Up first is Disney World! Florida and is a must go if you are going to Florida. So I have been to Florida twice and the first time I went I didn't go to Disney World and I don't know why I didn't go. It honestly is magical!. The only down side is be careful when you go in the week its busy but at the weekend for some reason it is packed and you can't even move. So my Tip for this place is go week days or you can download the Disney App on your phone and it tells you all the waiting times for each park it is amazing!!! 


So Universal studios I have been to twice! and it was even better the second time. I could go a third time. There is so much to do at universal and so many rides you can go on. The best place for me was the Harry Potter part and well I think that is must peoples favourite place. So Universal has two different parks - the first one is the theme park part and the second is the studio tours. Both parks are awesome! and are a must go! I spent months before I went watching videos on Youtube and getting myself wayyyyy to exciting about going.    


Oh my Disney Cove! One of the best days of my life. This place is breath taking so you have so much to do here. The Price to do this is expensive BUT i think it is so worth it . You get to swim with dolphins, feed birds, swim in the water with all the fish or just chill on the beach. Another great thing about this place is all food and drink is included! amazing.  

So the next place is in Disney BUT it is a must thing to do while you are there so i'm going to count it in. So this is the safari park in animal kingdom and it is so worth the wait. so the first day the queue was over 4 hours long so we didn't do it but the second day we deceived to go back in the afternoon and it was such a good idea because the queue was only 30 mins. This safari is the best I have been on so far, its amazing.


So Florida is a jam packed fun holiday and its always good to just take a step back at least one day and chill by the pool. we spent a couple of days just chilling by the pool getting a tan. 

I honestly had the best time in Florida and I want to go back already. I miss it !! If you are going to Florida soo... 1 I hate you take me with you and 2 I hope this post has helped and if you want to here anymore tips on going to Florida please let me know. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day !!

Easy Ways To Travel Around Iceland On A Budget

Tuesday, 5 February 2019

Hello My Lovelies I hope you all having a great week of weekend. Today's post is exciting because its about savings money on a trip and its about how you can afford to travel to Iceland. The best place I have been so far. I am going yo tell you in this post how me and my husband managed to fly stay and travel round most of Iceland for under £1,000 and we had money left over.

The flights and hotel we got super cheap. Much cheaper than what we thought we was going to get them for. We booked our flights and hotel with Easy Jet and it only cost £650. This included 4 nights stay at the Radission Blu saga flights and 23kg of luggges and we paid to choice where we sat on the plane. Now this is a pretty good deal I feel as so people I was speaking yo before we book we telling us pricing over £1000 just for the flight and hotel. We did fly over Christmas so pricing was a littler higher than if you go say in May. I have looked at pricing in May for Easy jet and the same deal is £500 for two people. (I really wanted to book but I stopped myself)


So we also renting a car and we knew this would save us so much money on trips out with other companies and we knew that if we had our own Car we can do things at our own pace.  The car hire was £200 and this was only because we wanted a 4x4 you could of got a standard car for much less and if I an Honestly we could have got away with having a normal car.  The car company we would bit recommend so I won't be sharing who we went with. We did feel a little ripped off by the car we got. It didn't ruin our trips tho.

So people was telling us to take over £1,000 in spending money and we thought this was a little to much so we didn't listen. I am glad we didn't listen because we didn't need it. We took £300 and only spend £150.  Now we only spend so little because everything was paid for. We paid for the blue lagoon before we went and our hotel had bed and breakfast so we only had go buy lunch and dinner. For lunch we had PIC NICs as we was out exploring every day. You could go to the super market near the hotel and this costs nothing I think we spend just under £30 for lunches for the 4 days we was there. You Don't need to have lunch out every day. Also for dinner there was a pizza hut down the road from us and yeah I'm sorry to say we had pizza hut for dinner every night.. It was lush! One night we drove to see the north an lights and ate pizza while watching it was just perfect. So the pizza was super cheap also and we spend around £60 to £80 for the nights we was there. Bargain!!

Now because we had a car I think personally we was able to see more places around Iceland. With tours I find that they spend to much time in one place so you Don't get to see much. Honestly its great if you can't drive or Don't mind it. But for me and my husband we like having our own car and doing things at our own pace. Driving over there is super easy and if you have a sat nav or just your phone you are good to go. We planned before we went where we wanted to go to and what days so we could pack as much as we good in every day .

I shall list below the places we went to and all we paid was the petrol and petrol I found wasn't to bad - We paid around £100 to £150 for petrol for the whole trip. 

  • Blue Lagoon - 
  • Hallgrimskirkja -
  • Þingvellir
  • Gullfoss
  • Geysir
  • Seljalandsfoss
  • Skógafoss
  • Perlan
  • Garour Folk Museum
  • Dettifoss
  • Hekla
  • bridge america - europe
  • Hafnarberg - Sea-cliffs

  • Kleifarvatn
  • Seltún Geothermal Area
  • Thingvellir National Park
  • Esjubær
  • Grótta Island Lighthouse
  • Garður Old Lighthouse
  • Viking World
  • Northan Lights 
WOW didn't realise we visited so many places! I think I am missing some bits but I will add them on when I remember. I personally think We did pretty well and I am happy in what we managed to see.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it has helped people . You can do anything if you put your mind to it. I honstly had the best tings in Iceland and I would definitely tell people to visit it is so beautiful.
