Readers are often skeptical at first that I travel as cheaply as I say I do, and the first target of their criticism is usually the cost of my flights. Looking over my budgets, you’ll see that I don’t crack the 30 euro mark on airfare, even when my trip is made up of six different flight legs. I revealed my secret here, but the short version is: let RyanAir pay the taxes and fees! If I still haven’t convinced you of my sincerity or cheapo cred, head over to the RyanAir site right now: they are holding another no-taxes/no-fees sale for the month of June, which they’ve extended till Thursday. You too can book your own flights for 1.51 euros!
For less than 17 euros airfare (that’s four tickets), June will find me traveling to Seville and Granada, Spain, via Frankfurt-Hahn airport. So my wise and fearless readers, I’m once again seeking your advice. I’m looking at two days near the airport and four nights in Spain. Have you successfully visited the “Romantic Rhine” without a car? Would you split Seville and Granada with two days each? Any hot tips on Andalucian cuisine?
Further, I’m making plans for daytrips with a visitor to Berlin and am looking at Rostock or Leipzig. Been there and have a preference? I’d love to hear about it.
Your wisdom can earn you a modest prize if I deem your advice the best. I’ll select a winner for each destination. Enter the contest by leaving your comments below!
