Santorini is known for candy-colored houses and white buildings with half-spheres roofing carved into the cliffs. Once you are full of sweet views, take a walk on black sandy beaches. Hostels aren’t always the cheapest, but the gyros are. You might turn into a gyro by the time you come home but at least, you won’t burn your budget. While you are checking out all the views of architecture, photographing all the doors, just remember that the Tomb Raider sequel was filmed here.

Since you are in Europe local beers are a must, they are delightful and cheap (Google Bulgarian brewing and you’ll know what we are talking about). P.S. There are ancient ruins buried beneath the city, including a Colosseum visible from the subway, no joke.

Lounging in a cushioned chair at the beach with a savory and spicy curry dish and a Kingfisher beer. Whoa, do I need to say more? If you don’t like curry, you’ll probably hate it here. But there are plenty of things to love about Goa, like the Basilica of Bom Jesus. If there were a championship match between Roman architecture and baroque architecture, it would be a tie for most beautiful. If you are into the hippie scene, check out Arambol. It’s cheap, you can expect a lot of chilling and hanging around and eating more curry.
