Turin or Torino might not be the most popular cities in Italy for international tourists. But for anyone who loves football (or soccer for Americans/Australians!), the city is known for two of the biggest football teams in Italian Serie A: Torino FC and Juventus. The latter was where legendary players like Alessandro del Piero or Gianluigi Buffon used to play for decades. It’s even where Cristiano Ronaldo currently plays.

But today, despite the fact that Italy just recently won Euro 2020 in England… We’re not going to talk about football today, as we’re gonna talk about how you can explore Turin on the budget.

Thanks to Natalie from The Best of Turin, we’re going to list some recommended activities in the city that is less than $10 on this week’s series. So, what could you get in Turin for $10?

Why You Should Visit Europe in Autumn

Europe. Wherever you are right now in the world, I can guarantee you that Europe is on your travel bucket list – because it’s not just one place.

It’s London monuments and French rivieras, Spanish tapas and Italian churches. It’s Bavarian fruitcakes and Belgian chocolates, Greek plate-smashing and Icelandic ice baths.

Europe is stuffed with cities, country towns, beaches and baths, spas and pools and theaters and museums. Europe is dripping in history, culture, spectacular art, amazing beer and some of the finest and most authentic food you’ll ever taste in your life.

If Europe isn’t on your bucket list, you’re not writing the right bucket list!

What You Could Get in Milan for $10 – Traveling on the Budget in the Wealthiest City of Italy

Hi everyone!

Back to the $10 series again this week, and this time we’re going to cover one of the cities that has been on my bucket list ever since I’m a teenager: Milan. So yes, after covering Rome, Bologna, and Naples the other day, we’re going to cover Milan this week!

I grew up watching football, and those who do would probably know the rivalry of the Milan clubs, AC Milan and Inter Milan. 

When I started following football, AC Milan was pretty big at the time with the players like Paolo Maldini, Cafu, Clarence Seedorf, and Rui Costa… Meanwhile, their city counterpart was struggling to wait for their first scudetto after 1989.

Well, I’m not going to write the whole football stuff in one of the most fashionable cities in Europe, but thanks to Anda of Travel for a While, we’re going to cover how to travel on the budget in the wealthiest city of Italy. 

So, what could you get in Milan for $10 USD?

As a beer enthusiast myself, beer is one of the alcoholic drinks that I can’t simply say no whenever I get offered. More especially when I travel overseas.

It’s the only drink with alcohol that makes me feel like I’m a responsible drinker. Anything stronger than beer, and I start rambling about my life problem. God knows why I am like this. LOL.

Ice Cream Around the World You Should Stop By and Try

Hi everyone! 

Do you know that the 19th of July is actually celebrated as Ice Cream’s Day in the United States, thanks to their 40th president Ronald Reagan?

Well, I wasn’t aware of such a celebration day either until last month when I planned out my content calendar and found out this fun fact. As a result, I decided to invite some fellow bloggers to contribute their piece about their favorite ice cream around the world since my last collab post about instant noodles was quite a success!

It’s summer in most parts of the world, and ice cream always sounds like a great idea under the heat. But then again, who am I kidding? It’s still a good idea to enjoy in the winter too, so why don’t we start talking about ice cream around the world now on Ice Cream’s Day?
