Or everything I know about getting around Belgium, France, and other nearby Western countries
*This post is constantly updated with information as I come to know them
Number one thing that made me want to start a travel blog: To have a place to share
all the knowledge that I’ve picked up on in the last couple of years I’ve been self planning trips and vacations
If you’ve read my last few posts, it should be clear to you that I now live in Belgium. I’ve been living in Belgian Flanders for the past 2.5 years as a corporate worker, and before that, as a student in French Flanders (#lillemaville) for exactly a year.
In these 3.5 years of living around here, I’ve now come up with a system when planning my travel.
I hope to update this post as I encounter more tips or think about more stuff that could be helpful.
Who are these tips for?
So obviously because I started as but a poor student, these are not tips for luxury travellers. If you want to live like a Kardashian and stay in Parisian Sofitel hotels with amazing instagrammable views of the Eiffel tower – this post is not for you.
On the other hand, this is also not for people looking to go backpacking. I’m too picky (read: too old) to be doing the backpacker thing and living in 30 person dorms. At the minimum, I need my own private space (bed wise and toilet wise).
So this is more or less for people who are willing to spend SOME money, but would love to find out cheaper options as much as possible.
Where to start?
To start off, best to do some research by looking into the different travel aggregator and review sites available.
