Under $100 / Europe

If you are getting ready to travel to Scotland, there is a good chance you plan to stop in Glasgow. Luckily, this stop doesn’t need to leave your wallet empty.

 

Kick your day off with a visit to Café Gandolfi. This authentic Scottish café offers a wide variety of breakfast foods, but we recommend going for the Gandolfi Full Scottish Breakfast. This authentic breakfast will leave you energized for the day ahead and will only set you back $10.

 

After breakfast, it is time to take a trip to the Glasgow Necropolis. Walking tours of the Necropolis are free of charge, but donations are welcome. The Necropolis is packed with history and is worth exploring. If you want a guided tour, you need to book in advance.

 

After a morning of exploring the Necropolis, you will probably have an appetite. Make your way over to Bread Meats Bread and get a classic burger and lunch for less than $15. Bread Meats Bread also has a number of vegetarian, vegan and chicken options for those who aren’t beef-inclined.

 

After lunch, take a trip to the oldest park in the city. Glasgow Green is 136 acres of park within walking distance of Bread Meats Bread. The park is filled with monuments and is worth visiting for the history alone. Spend as long as you like touring the park; chances are, you won’t see the whole thing before dinner.

 

For dinner, kick it up a notch with a visit to Fanny Trollopes Bistro. The bistro has a wide array of options and is sure to satisfy even picky eaters. You can get a full meal for less than $25.

 

Glasgow has many places to explore and see, even if you are on a tight budget. Make sure to consider all of the parks, like Pollok Country Park, Kelvingrove Park and the Glasgow Botanic Gardens, for more affordable exploration during your visit.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
