Travelling to Europe can offer you some amazing sights and experiences. However, it’s not exactly cheap! The cost of a typical trip across Europe often turns some people off the idea completely. By planning ahead and making certain decisions, you’ll be able to shave a lot of money off the overall cost of your trip. Here’s how to make your European adventure much more affordable.

With so many different cultures on the continent, you’ll probably want to stop at several different places. The best way to approach this is probably by renting a car. This can be extremely expensive or extremely cheap depending on how you go about it. Hotwire car deals is usually a good starting point. If you can, try to book two one-way tickets rather than a return. If you’re staying in one country, getting a return will obviously save you money. We’re talking about a Paris to Moscow kind of trip though. In these cases, booking single tickets to your starting point and from your destination is the best way to save money. This will stop you from having to go in a huge loop and spending more on your rented car.

Another good tip is to time your travels wisely. Weather aside, summer is typically the worst time to go to Europe. The prices for city tours, excursions and museum entries are bumped up. The same goes for hotel fees and plane tickets, so do yourself a favour by travelling in one of the colder months. Summer will often give you a distinctly un-European experience. The place you visit will be brimming with tourists. Also, many of the local businesses will be changing their way of operating to accommodate for the mobs. This is especially true for Spain, Italy and Greece. Obviously you want to skip all the claustrophobic crowds, and get a more genuine sense of the countries.  Choose any time outside of June, July and August.

Finally, try to keep a plan in mind. It’s nice to improvise and play it by ear in a continent like Europe. However, if your trip is too disorganised you might get back home and spend ages regretting all the places which you missed out on. If you’ve never been to Europe before, you might want to plan a route that goes through all the famous cities. If you’re interested in 20th century history, than Germany, Poland and various countries in Eastern Europe is a good idea. Whatever your route is, try to do a lot of budgeting, and stick to what you can spend in which area. This will help you spread out your money. Still, you’re allowed one or two crazy nights!

I hope these tips help you make it to Europe, and see all the incredible sights around the continent. Although it may not save you a penny, learn a few phrases in a couple of European languages. English is commonly spoken throughout Europe, so you’ll probably be fine. However, giving the native tongue a try will always be appreciated.

If you are tired of getting rid of unwanted hair with traditional methods, such as shaving, it might be a good idea to think about getting rid of that hair another way. The first option that comes to mind is probably laser hair removal, but you also have the option of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, which are different. Here’s a comparison of the two.

Both Offer Home Use Kits
One thing both techniques have in common is that home use kits are available. In other words, you can go to a drugstore or department store and find hand-held IPL or laser devices to use on yourself. That may sound much more convenient than going in for treatments at your local spa or clinic, right?

The only problem is that IPL and laser hair removal devices designed to be used at home don’t produce the same results as those used in clinics. They simply aren’t as strong, especially the laser devices. So, although they may remove some hairs, they aren’t going to be as thorough or precise.

How the Two Treatment Types Differ
Lasers are concentrated beams of monochromatic (one color) light. They also create a lot of heat in most cases. IPL hair removal machines are much less concentrated. Instead, they produce “bands” of light on certain frequencies, which are meant to disrupt hair growth. However, those pulses of lights don’t create much heat at all.

Why You Might Choose One or the Other
Technically speaking, laser machines usually work better than IPL machines. They are stronger and can often keep unwanted hair from growing back as quickly as it might after IPL treatment. However, the differences in techniques means that laser machines might not be a good way to treat specific patients.

Basically, the heat created by lasers can be disruptive for those with oil glands that are over-active. So, as an example, if you are prone to acne outbreaks you might want to try IPL instead, since acne and oily skin tend to go hand-in-hand.

Lasers can also be a problem for dark-skinned people sometimes, since they tend to treat darker areas on the skin’s surface, which are generally dark hairs. Anyone with dark skin might find that certain laser devices can’t find the hair against the dark skin. Although, there are some lasers that can treat darker skin types.

Shaving or Waxing May Not be Eliminated
If you have IPL or laser treatments, you will have to shave and wax much less often than you otherwise would. But you still may have to do it periodically. How often will depend on a lot of things, including the treatments you have, how often you have them, and how much hair you are trying to treat.

Nevertheless, if you have the proper clinical treatment for your unwanted hair, the roots should be damaged. That means weeks or months before the hair will regrow, as opposed to the few days it might take after you shave surface hair away. So, no matter which type of clinical hair removal treatment you choose, it will save you time.

For those of us that work in an office, it’s easy to become very bored with our surroundings. Offices tend to be drab and lack any sort of personality. Lots of us take in photo frames of loved ones to sit on the desk. But you can go further than that. You can do quite a lot more to put a splash of your personality and identity into your work space.

If you’re in an open-plan office, you might have only your desk to declare as your own. There are rarely any rules preventing you adding a few little touches to help you feel more at home in the workplace, though. You could start with a table runner across the desk. This adds a splash of color to the room. And why not add a favorite plant to nurture?

Instead of a traditional photo frame, why not have a photo tree or even a digital frame that will show you more pictures? Themed photo frames can help you add a little quirkiness or interest to your desk space. After all, you’re there for eight hours every day. You want it to be fun and unique to you.
