Whenever I book flights to different countries, people back home always ask how it's affordable or where I get the plane tickets. It blew my mind that a lot of people didn't know about Skyscanner or what the website actually offers. It also blew my mind that people were unaware of RyanAir and EasyJet - which are two of the budget friendly airlines in Europe.
This post is to share the wisdom I've gathered over the past nine months regarding flying in Europe, scanning the internet (skyscanner) for cheap flight deals and purchasing flight deals.
I created the video below that walks you step by step through the process of getting a ticket on skyscanner.
*Sorry about the text, apparently Tarzan is a good movie!? :)*
Once you have gone through the process of finding where you want to go and are ready to purchase, skyscanner will then take you to the airline's website. So if you are purchasing a ticket through RyanAir you will purchase it on their website not skyscanner. Skyscanner is just a metasearch that basically compares flights to one another.
Hopefully this tutorial has been helpful for those of you who have never used or heard of skyscanner before. It's especially helpful for those who don't really have plans or a distinct location in mind as it allows for a little bit of flexibility and creativity in your trip.

Eating in London on a budget is no easy task but I fully believe that it can be done if you know the right places to go. When I lived there, I didn't eat out a lot because I was constantly at my university - but when I did eat out, it was at places that were affordable yet amazing.

When people tell me that while I was working on my Master's degree I was on vacation I get irritated and defensive. This post is a honest, heartfelt opinion on this subject and if you are considering studying abroad in general - I suggest you read it!
In most people's minds, when you travel you have to have and spend a lot of money. I like to think that I proved that wrong on several of my trips. I went on a ten day, four country trip for less than $700. I also went on a 14 day, 5 country trip for less than $1000. Honestly, you can spend less than that if you really watch what you're spending your money on. I want to share a few tips on how you can travel on a budget but still get the most out of your trip abroad.
Let's face it, 2016 wasn't the greatest year for most people. However, I had an amazing year and I'd like to give you some advice on how you can make your 2017 GREAT.
