This capital city of the Netherlands is just like any other famous capital cities in Europe, busy all year long. Those hustling and bustling of the pedestrians, cyclers, scooters and cars; that iconic and classic sounds of bicycle and tram’s bell and the breeze of the coastal wind just at the corner of the canals makes a visit to Amsterdam at any time of the year seems to be inevitably mesmerizing.
When we hear the word Cannes, we immediately think of that film festival or the glitz and glamor that this port city is famous for. As one of the top destinations for the jetsetters in the French Riviera it is obvious that almost everything in this town is expensive and chic. Luckily, ALMOST everything. The important question is how can you spend a day in Cannes on a low budget? Well, I may have some tips to do that!
Sometimes you think that the grass is greener on the other side. You look for something beautiful too far. We tend to do this as well while travelling. I encountered a gem at a city nearby the place I live: Breda. I have only been in this city once and it was eight years ago. What intended to be a few hours of chit-chatting with fellow blogger Ruby from rubybackpacking, ended up to be a half day of wandering.
My little red pepper and I love to travel in the Netherlands. We often go by train because of several reasons. First of all it’s because of the view. She loves to see the sceneries and just gaze out the window for a half of hour (exaggerating? Ok, 10 minutes or something). Secondly, it is cheaper. I have a special abonnement which allows me to get 40 % discount if I travel outside the rush hours. My daughter has her own card which allows her to travel for free. I only applied for the card and payed €7, 50 after that it’s €0, 00 until she is 11 years old. Thirdly, because … “it’s fun, mommy!” She enjoys the time on the train when we do a little bit of book colouring, a little bit of chatting, singing and snacking. Fourthly, it is quite safe and child friendly.
