In May of 2019, I was looking for a place to travel during my Summer off from University. My intention, beginning in January, was to go to Australia and use the working holiday Visa to pay my way. As it turned out, I would not be able to get a 2nd working holiday Visa if I did so, because you need to complete at least 3 months of farm or otherwise qualified work. I determined that I wanted to have more time in Australia than just one Summer.
So, how did I decide where to go instead?
I looked for the cheapest flight into Europe and, naturally, found that the cheapest place to travel to is also the most expensive place to stay: Denmark.
This series will examine the journey (which I am still on at the time of this writing) and will spawn several tips & tricks articles so that you may travel confidently as well.
To kick things off, here is the basic planning I did;
- June 25th – July 2nd: Copenhagen, Denmark
- July 2nd – July 9th: Aarhus, Denmark
- July 9th – July 16th: Odense, Denmark
- July 16th – July 23rd: Copenhagen, Denmark
- Plane Ticket: $900
- Hostels: $1000
- Weekly Discretionary: $500
- Total: $3900
