What You Could Get in Porto for $10 – Must-Visit Places in the City

Back to Europe again for this week’s $10 series! 😀

Today, we’re gonna talk about the city in Portugal where J.K. Rowling used to live. This is the city where the idea of mighty Harry Potter was born from her genius mind. And for those who don’t know what city it is, it is Porto.

You might be familiar with Wendy from The Nomadic Vegan, she’s one of the women travelers that I featured a few months ago and she’s back. Now, she’s back to share with us how far $10 USD could get you in Porto! 😉

Top 9 Active Vacation Destinations

Sometimes, we need a break. A proper break, from our lives and stresses, but also from activity. We need to lie by a pool for hours at a time, sipping cocktails and reading easy books. We need slow walks across the beach and afternoons in the spa. We need time to do as little as possible to recharge our batteries and catch up on our rest.

Sometimes, it’s good to be lazy, to chill out and to give ourselves time to relax and unwind. These kinds of vacations are ideal after a busy period of work, or when you’ve got a lot on your mind, and you need to take some time just to think. You can come home feeling refreshed and ready to get back into things.

But, these kinds of a trip aren’t for everyone all of the time. Sometimes relaxing by the beach all of the time feels like a waste. When you’ve got energy to burn you might want to spend your time being more active. Some people even find it easier to clear their minds when their bodies are moving. They find it easier to think and to sort through their thoughts when they are moving, seeing new sites and enjoying all that the world has to offer.

What You Could Get In Lisbon for $10 – Canned Food is Prestigious!

Hi everyone! 😀

What you could get in the city for $10 is here again, and now my first question would be… What would be the first thing that comes to mind whenever you hear something about Portugal? Is it the basic stuff like Cristiano Ronaldo?

If that’s your answer then shame on you because I was expecting you would be more cultured and say Vasco da Gama. 😛

I mean, come on… Talking about traveling, I think it’s fair to say that Vasco da Gama is the first European to reach India by sea and if you think you’re a wanderlust yet know nothing about him, then I’m so sorry because maybe you’re not really. Haha.

But anyway, yes… In this opportunity, thanks to James from Worldwide Shopping Guide who would love to share with us what we could spend our $10 in the capital city of Portugal, Lisbon. 🙂

11 Random Facts About the Countries in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and Some Smartass Prediction: Group A & B

Hi everyone! 😀

In case you don’t know about my obsession over football, you could first check out my previous post about the hot football players in 2000s that made me glad that I hit the puberty back in the days. But since we’re now counting down the days to the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, I want to have a special feature for this big event.

It’s because that I started my obsession with FIFA World Cup years ago as well. I remember I got this booklet with a lot of information about football and the countries that played in the tournament.

And for exactly the same reason, I want to have a similar feature on my blog. However, since I’m the queen of the random stuff, I’ll create this feature to be as random as possible. After all, I’m the kind of person who shamelessly asked my skinhead friend how far he washed his face and whether he used shampoo or soap to wash his head.

In case now you’re wondering about the answer, the answer is that he still uses shampoo to wash his head since soap formula is not so good for the scalp that may cause unwanted dandruff.
