Europe on NZ$30 a day.
I’d heard rumours that it could still be found “out east”, but I didn’t quite believe it.
However, with the price of travelling through Western Europe rapidly emptying my bank account, I was keen to see if the rumours were true. So I headed to Bulgaria, about as far east as you can go on the continent, to spend a winter weekend in the capital Sofia. I’d soon find out whether the European budget-backpacker dream was still possible.
