The best of world on a budget of €15 a day…

InterRail budget tip of the day (Day Seven, Ljubljiana to Soca Valley)

It’s not just safety that comes in numbers.

It’s no secret that fifteenaday believe these best form of eating on the road is to buy local yummy treats for the Supermarket and make it a mission to turn your meal into an activity by finding an amazing picnic spot. (logic being that on fifteenaday, you won’t have a budget for many paid entry activities, so you’re better off making lunch an activity in itself!). You can pick up some pretty good treats in European supermarkets for not too much moolah if you’re careful and wise, but at the end of the day a loaf of bread casts €1 whether it’s split between 1 or 5 of you. The same goes for cheese, pesto, salami and all the other local goodies you might try out. This also goes for bottles of wine, but I guess that’s a different situation….

Thus, adding people to your picnic not only provides much needed company, but also splits the cost and adds variety to your pickings: for €2 for one person you can MAYBE pick up a loaf of bread, a few tomatoes and some cheese. It gets a bit crap after a few days, to be honest. But if five of you chip in you can add a meat, a pesto, another cheese. Possibly even get crazy and another meat. The possibilities are endless and even though being endless is already infinite, the more of you there are, the more endless the possibility. Ya dig?
