In early August, I'm off travelling around the Baltics and Scandinavia, I understand Its going to be a bit pricey, and I'm looking for any advice on where I might be able to get by without spending huge amounts?
I hear that Riga and Tallinn are'nt as cheap as they once were due to the commercialization of the places now, with all the Brits flying over for there stag doo's and causing havoc, that's not my intentions for travelling!
I'm not overly concerned about the prices of Riga and Tallinn, but it's the cities of Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, that most concern me.
In october last year I travelled around Europe to a number of places and went to rather expensive places such as Rome and Paris. During my travels I spent most nights in either hostels or budget hotels, based my living on cheap food in the day and a meal at night. around £50 per day for food and items to buy was the amount I budgeted for.
I've already booked my Hotels/Hostels for my trip, just having to budget now for my days.
What I'm looking for is any advice on what type of food I should be looking for during the day and any places which people can recommend that can get me by on around £50 per day In those 4 cities? I don't really mind eating Mcdonalds or any other fast food during the days, as most of the time is taken up by walking and exploring the cities, so a quick bite to eat is perfect for my kind of stay, but a night I would like a sit down meal.
My cousin has spoke to me about when he went to Brann recently and cost him and 2 friends £32 for 3 sandwiches?! I realised these countries are expensive but that's just extortionate!
I'm going to copy this post into other cities forums to see if I can get any help from people in those forums.
