What You Could Get in Manchester for $10 – Where to Go and What to Eat on a Budget in the Second-Largest City of the UK

As an Asian football fan, the first thing I was familiar with the city of Manchester is Old Trafford. I mean, when I started watching football, Manchester United won a treble with the golden generation that gave us the one and only David Beckham.

Mind you, I said this even though I’m not a supporter of the club, neither am I supporting the blue Manchester team. I’m a gooner, if you must know.

And today, Jenni of Choose Veganism will tell you how you could stroll around the city on a budget. So, what could you get in Manchester 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!

Happy International Beer Day!

Wait, do you even know that today is actually International Beer Day? If you don’t, then just know that there’s such a thing like International Beer Day and it’s celebrated around the world… This Friday!

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?
