Japan has an image of being one of the most expensive countries in the world, and if you’re staying in hotels, eating out, and traveling around a lot, then it can really cost you a bomb. It is never going to be as cheap as other destinations and while it may be an expensive country to visit, there are plenty of ways to make this country affordable. To me, budget travel is value travel. So, I have listed 4 vital points on how you can cut down the costs and make this country affordable: 1.) TRANSPORTATIONTransportation is one of the most expensive aspects of travel in Japan and this will surely eat up your pennies. The bullet train, while awesome, comfortable, and fast, is not cheap at all. Individual rail journey can cost hundreds of dollars when added altogether. So in order to reduce your train costs, get a Japan Rail (JR) pass.I repeat, do get a JAPAN RAIL PASS and here’s my BIG NOTE: You only can buy this pass outside of Japan and only people on…

Week 1 & 2 – Perth, Western Australia

My first few weeks in Australia meant I was in Perth – the state capital of Western Australia. This city sort of has my heart, but mainly because of the surrounding areas rather than the city itself. First of all, let’s get to the flight. I flew with Garuda Indonesia – an exceptional budget airline that I was extremely wary about at first but ended up having a brilliant flight (or 4 flights, I should say). The only downside of flying with budget airlines, is the abundance of stopovers. This meant that to get from London to Perth, we actually had 4 flights. London-Amsterdam-Jakarta-Bali-Perth. That was loooong. However, the flights were extremely comfortable and one thing I will say about Garuda Indonesia is that they never stop feeding you.

How To Shop Smart! Part 1!

Everyone knows that a girls biggest weakness is shopping! Looking thorough endless racks of clothes I always manage to find something I like and can never resist the urge to buy it! Unfortunately the only solution to not buy clothes you don’t need is to not go shopping, but if you are anything like me, that won’t work, I always end up in a mall somehow! Here are some tips on how to shop yet still save money. A day or two before you go shopping always go online and check for coupons. You’re probably thinking, “I won’t find any coupons, if there are any sales I’ll find out at the store,” but you’d be surprised how many coupons I’ve found and how much money I’ve saved. There are usually coupons for The body shop and Claires so make sure to always search for coupons for those stores. Stores are sneaky, they don’t place racks randomly, they place them strategically. Almost every store has a clearance rack, you just…
