What You Could Get in Copenhagen for $10 – How to Have Fun in the City Without Breaking the Bank

Normally, this would have been April Fool when everyone would prank each other with some random joke or lie. Now with all coronavirus things going on around the world, I hope all of you are safe at home.

Again, when I decided to still have the $10 series despite everything that has been going across the globe lately, it’s not because I’m tone-deaf. It’s rather because I want to give some hope that this too will eventually end, and I hope it won’t stop you from your wanderlust.

And this week, we’re going to have Derek and Mike of Everything Copenhagen to share with you how you could spend $10 in one of the most expensive cities in the world: the capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen.

Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc: Going Out of Town with G5Car Comfort Car in Vietnam

Hi everyone!

I don’t mean to be a tone-deaf if I keep updating my blog with some travel posts from my last Indochina trip these days with all coronavirus things going on. I know this, because it seems to be an issue within the travel bloggers community since I’ve seen a lot of posts from some bloggers complaining about the number of traffic declining and whatnot.

But guess what? It won’t stop me from writing more stories about my last trip around Indochina because first of all… I need to keep my blog active. And other than that, it’s still fresh in my memory so I need to write it now before I forget about what happened. Or worse, before the laziness strikes me!

Let’s be honest, I’ve spent my last few days binge-watching the earlier season of The Mindy Show. I need to force myself to do something a little productive today, and that is to share with you my experience of renting a private car from Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc.

What You Could Get in Bali for $10 – Places to Visit and What to Do on the Island of God on Budget

Almost 2 years ago, we covered Ubud in one of our $10 series. As I went to Bali a few months ago, I also recently talked about some must-places visit in Bali along with my opinion about each place.

Today, we’re going to write yet another piece about Bali. This is going to cover another region in Bali, and also another way to spend your $10 on the island.

Thanks to Chantel of Travel for Your Life who would contribute this piece, let’s see the other region in Bali that is worth visiting when you’re on the island and what you can do there within the budget!

A Must-Visit Spot in Ho Chi Minh City: Bitexco Saigon Skydeck & The World of Heineken

It wasn’t my first visit to Ho Chi Minh City, so I didn’t have an exact itinerary this time. Instead, I just tried to wing it when I was there. And that’s when I decided to stop by Bitexco Financial Tower after strolling around District 1 on my first day in the city.

To be fair, I started late at around 1 PM on my first day. And since I didn’t have a fixed itinerary about what I had to do or visit, I decided to just go to some coffee shop and some cafe. Of course, I had ca phe sua da, because ca phe sua da is life in Vietnam. 😛

I wandered around the area until around 3 PM, I decided to just go to Bitexco Financial Tower. Bitexco Saigon Skydeck seems to be one of the places on the must-visit list in Ho Chi Minh City. But if I gotta be honest with you, in the beginning, I wasn’t really interested in visiting the place.

I always thought that it was the kind of place that is overhyped and probably overpriced too. I didn’t even do any research about the entrance fee in advance. I went go-show for this, and I’m glad I did.

The Best Luggage for Your Travel Companion: Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage VS NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on

As I stated in my short profile on the sidebar of my blog, I usually add on checked-in baggage whenever I travel. Apart from back when I worked as a flight attendant, the only time I traveled with carry-on luggage was a couple of years ago when I went to Singapore for Arsenal’s pre-season game on International Champion Cup.

However, I still have a few cabin luggage that I occasionally use for a short getaway. It doesn’t matter that I still end up putting it on the checked-in baggage on the flight.

The point is to at least have cabin luggage, in case I have no additional budget to add the baggage for a flight like my short Singapore trip when I was broke but wanted to go for the sake of football.

And today, I’m going to talk about two cabin-sized luggage that could be your consideration for your new travel companion. Those two that I will talk about in this post is the review between Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage and NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on.

So, between the two, which one is better?
