Bucket List on a Budget

Scroll down

Completing most bucket lists normally requires at least £30,000 and a couple of years out of your life. Whilst, this would be great, not all of us have such luxuries. So, at Red Square Vodka we decided to create an achievable bucket list within a reasonable budget and time frame (maybe…summer 2016).

1.  St. Patricks Day, Dublin

If you ever want to see a city overtaken with green and euphoria 17th March in Dublin is the place to be. Book flights early and stay in a local hostel or AirBnB to make the overall trip reasonable.
Flights – You’re currently looking at around £50-£60, check out Skyscanner
Accommodation- Cheaper Hostels can be an easy £21 – £30 on Hostelworld

2. Isle of Man, Stargaze

Taking into account UK light pollution, cloud cover and budgetary constraints the Isle of Man is almost too good to be true. Camp out under the stars, get a fire going, wrap up warm and just take in the stunning views.
Travel- Depends on when you go but around £50- £60 return on a Manx Ferry

3. Day out in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is perfect for a weekend escape away from the UK. Go outside of term times for cheap flights and accommodation and discover a small city that’s buzzing with great culture, food and night life.

Accommodation- Cheaper Hostels ranging from £13 – £20 on Hostelworld.com

The British Street Food Festival collates the best hidden treasures hiding in the UK into a nationwide competition. Needless to say if you like unbelievable and unpretentious food, get yourself there.
