Student Holiday SavingsPublished 11 months ago in Student News.
If you have no money but want to escape the snow you need to tap your savings… (it’s almost always worth it…)
When I see a beach like that I just want to travel somewhere! I want to escape the harsh European winter and go to some warm country and waste my time on the beach. But then again who doesn’t? This year I was actually lucky enough to be able to make a small holiday trip to Portugal where I was staying with relatives. It was a great trip, it was very relaxing and full of light and sunshine. I spent a great time walking the long sandy beaches with the cliffs the Algarve is most famous for. Least did I think of my financial worries.
I was busy enjoying the sun and forgetting my stressful daily campus routine. Going on holiday meant I left all my problems at home and escaped into the south for some carefree days to regain energy. However, I like so many other students struggle with money in everyday life yet alone am able to afford a vacation.
For my Portugal trip I was just lucky that I could stay with relatives that made travelling a bit cheaper. However, I did have to use some of my savings. But looking at that picture and reminiscing I have to say: it was definitely worth it! I can start rebuilding my savings tomorrow….
