I've gotten a lot of value out of Wikivoyage. It's does not specifically list free things but if the article on your destination is comprehensive (chances are it is) the listings usually include tons of free stuff to do. Googling (ordered from least to most personal) "[location] tourism", "free things to do in [location]", "[location] on a budget", or even ...

To the best of my knowledge such a pass does not exist for Europe as of now. This does not exclude its existence, but it is highly unlikely. Furthermore I doubt you would be able to make significant savings if there were such a pass, compared to careful price shopping. Why I don't believe it exists Googling "Hotel Pass Europe" or "Hostel Pass Europe" ...

How to do it? Probably almost as many possible answers as there are travelers. My approach may not work for others, or they may find it distasteful: Pay off all debts including late wife's medical bills. Get rid of TV and car; learn to bicycle or walk everywhere. (Bus/train/car rental/plane only when time is a problem.) Get medical care from the U.S. ...

Great question and answers. In terms of accommodation, I didn't see house/pet sitting option listed yet. It may be a new(wer) thing since the question was posted. There are several sites where you pay an annual fee and have access to housesits all over the world. The owners of the home leave to travel themselves and sometimes even leave a car. You have a ...

It is very easy to find free things to do in many European cities. Google -free things to do in europe- and you get many sites like these Number 1 Number 2 Number 3 Numebr 4 These are just random sites for 'all' of Europe, I have not checked them out, even less used them. When you search for one city you will find lists like these but more to the point for ...

European (or even single European country) hotel pass: I could not find any examples of this existing for Europe (there seem to be some hotel and hostel passes in NZ and Aus). I tried generic serach terms, and also dug around the websites of: Marriot, Hilton, Accor, Ibis, Best Western, HostelingInternational, HostelWorld, Generator Hostels, Wombat hostels. ...

If you search the web, you might be able to find deals up to 50% discount for Eurodisney. Usually, you will have to opt for a specific date. Sometimes, the deal is reserved to the local people but not always. You can search websites like ticketmaster.

Hostels (google them) are usually cheaper than hotels but you have to be wanting to be with other people. Bed&Breakfast could is another suggestion (but usually not cheaper). Try university lodging; they sometimes rent out student apartments in the summer (but at the time you will be here it will be probably be over). For example, Université de ...

This is more a list of comments than a proper answer. I don't know Volta Redonda but Rio is a very expensive town (for Brazil standarts) Credit Cards Locals use it more than cash for day-to-day expenses meaning you also can use it to cover almost anything (make a call to be sure your it ill be valid overseas). Also it ill take the Real x Dollar exchange ...

For such a short visit, I would want to do as little surface travel as possible as that is always slower than airtravel. So I used Skyscanner to have a look at prices Schiphol (AMS) to Bergen (BGO) and when buying now for July or August you will still find prices of about €200 to €300 for a return ticket. If you love trains, you could fly into Oslo and out ...
