So you’re tinkering with the idea of backpacking through Europe? Great! But the big question that’s on everyone’s mind is “how much will it cost?” This is my first time to step the land of Europe. And speaking about the cost, yes it is really pricey “ang taas talaga ng value ng pera nila” but if you are a budget traveler no worries yakang yaka kapatid! This is a 14 days trip from Singapore to Amsterdam.
- ➡️Netherlands🇳🇱 –Amsterdam
- ➡️Belgium🇧🇪 – Brussels
- ➡️France🇫🇷 – Paris
- ➡️Switzerland🇨🇭 – Jungfraujoch & Interlaken
- ➡️Italy🇮🇹 – Pisa, Florence, Rome, Vatican City🇻🇦 & Venice
- ➡️Germany🇩🇪 – Munich, Nuremberg & Berlin.
From Singapore I booked my flight via www.skyscanner.com.sg and lucky enough I got Singapore Airlines for only 500SGD (17,000 pesos) one way to Amsterdam. Mura na to kasi they have unlimited drinks, masarap na pagkain (2 meals) and not a connecting flight, (13hours flight) to Amsterdam.”Tikman mo lahat ng drinks nila para sulit”. Unlike other deals with connecting flights are a bit cheaper “konti lang difference” but it will take you 25hours onboard “masakit sa pwet at sayang yong oras sa haba ng byahe”.

From Amsterdam I have a quick trip to Belgium, Brussels.Brussels is the biggest city in Belgium and home of EU parliament. It is also a major business hub of Europe, which means it’s expensive since the city caters to a lot of wealthy business people. Attractions are on the expensive side and everyday items like transportation and food can be a killer. So if you do visit here you might only want to stay for a day or two which is fine.

And then from Brussels, sakay ulit ng coach papuntang Paris.Brussels to Paris is 5 hours by coach. To all stoked commuters and travelers you can check the schedule and compare the best price here -> Find the best prices for your trip between Brussels and Paris by coach. France is the world’s top tourist destination. There’s a lot packed into just one country artistic and architectural masterpieces, remarkable museums and natural landscapes, and a history harking back far beyond the Romans. It’s no secret that Paris, by its very nature as a capital, can be pricey and often stars on the World’s Most Expensive Cities lists.

From Paris to Wilderswil, Switzerland by coach is 7 hours. Early morning ang byahe para iwas traffic, sabi nila “Early Bird catches more worms” 🙂 Hindi nakakatamad bumagon ng maaga basta nasa lakwatsa!Switzerland conjures up many images. On one side, there are majestic mountains, delicious fondue and chocolate, big banks sheltering people’s money, precision watches, and an orderly society. Switzerland is rated as the most expensive country in the world to visit. Nagulat ako sa sobrang linis ng Switzerland at lahat fresh walang pollution. I stay in Alpenrose Hotel for 2 nights and I am lucky enough to visit the Jungfraujoch The Top of Europe.

From negative 8 degree Celsius to 19 degree Celsius. On my way to Italy. Bonjourno Italia!
This trip from Wilderswil, Switzerland to Florence by coach is 6 hours and 15 minutes. Italy’s great food, beautiful countryside, fabulous wine, and long history make it an excellent country to visit. Natupad din ang pangarap kong maka-apak sa bansang Italia. Italy leaves no one underwhelmed. There’s so much to do in Italy that it would take a lifetime to finish.

From Berlin to Singapore I booked my ticket via http://www.cheapflights.com/, you can compare the best price deals here. A domestic flight from Berlin Tegel Airport to Helsinki is 1 hour and 50 minutes, and from Helsinki, Finland to Singapore is 11 hours and 15 minutes. First time kong sumakay sa Finnair sulit din with bottomless drinks masarap na pagkain (2 meals) for only 750Sgd (26,186 pesos).
Some cheaper deals has longer travel time and it won’t fit my schedule coz I need to be in Singapore on the next day to catch my flight back to my beloved Hometown Lanuza Surigao Philippines. “Its time to play surfing, back to pancit canton and wait for promo deals”. Back to Work para Sumahod, Play Hard para Fit, Travel para Stress Free and Repeat.
