When it comes to travelling, Alix and I are of the penny-counting type of traveller. It’s not that we don’t like spending money, quite the opposite in fact (oops) but we’re really big on making sure we spend our money in the right place. We were keen on seeing all we could in Amsterdam on a budget, as it was our first stop and we still has a long trip ahead of us.
If we’re going for a relaxing holiday, we’ll tend to get a little more spenny with our accommodation, whilst for most of our backpacking in Bali we went for budget hotels and hostels. Utilising hostels is really important to us, like on this trip when we opted for budget Amsterdam accommodation for a few nights instead of splashing out for the entire trip. It also left us with a little bit more in pocket for the more expensive Greek island of Mykonos, and then we splashed out on drinks in a rooftop bar in Vienna as a treat.
