The park is free. You can stand outside the gate and see the meridian, or pay 10 pounds to enter the observatory. It's 9 quid if you book online. More information: https://www.rmg.co.uk/plan-your-visit/tickets-prices

For another place to see the meridian, you could go to Peacehaven, near Brighton. This is where the meridian meets the south coast of England. The meridian is marked by a monument, at the top of the cliffs.

Yes, it may be very well worth to give it a try. Location based price differences are quite common in the travel industry and it is very much possible to save money by pretending to be somewhere else. Seeing that you are from Denmark, a specific example would be the Color Line ferry from Hirtshals to Larvik tonight at 22:15. If you try to book two persons ...

In general, I would say, this is doable, however in the end it depends also a bit on your definition of "comfortable". So here are just a few points to consider: There are different tickets for tourists (like the Berlin Welcome Card or the City Tour Card) which offer discounted rates (or even free entry) to many museums and other tourist attractions and ...

To add my two cents. The Greenwich meridian line can also be seen in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire represented by a stainless steel line cutting through a coastal footpath along with a granite globe and sign post. It is also free.

Just to add another place where you can see the Meridian line, the O2 Arena (formerly the Millenium Dome) is on the Greenwich Pennisula and has the line marked on the ground and a giant sundial that sits across in.

You can buy monthly train ticket for around 70 EUR (2 rings), much cheaper than weekly ticket but it depends on what route you will go on. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Ringbahn Train from Berlin to Bonn can be checked here https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml, get the ticket early for lower price. At the time I post this, it's 124 EUR. A ...

I actually did it. Not easy but not dangerous either. Here is my solution: Zero road crossing (the road from the airport, and even more so the highway to which it leads, are large roads with fast traffic, crossing them would be suicidal). One hour of walk. OK with a backpack and hiking shoes, not OK with a rolling suitcase or light shoes. Itinerary: Exit ...

The best step to take would be find a job and save your money. Those are within your control unlike other options such as playing the lottery.

You can go to East India DLR station. When you go down to ground level (don't go over the footbridge), the meridian is marked and you can follow it to the Thames.

Most Viennese museums request just a valid ID/Passport/Driving License which shows the age. Same is valid in rest of Austria. Other countries might have different rules. For example, "The Kunsthistorische Museum" in Vienna mentions "Pensionisten ab 65 oder mit gültigem Pensionistenausweis" "Pensioners over 65 or with valid pensioner card" The EU law does ...

Just contacted Island Trader, they said NO. Insurance etc was too difficult, and they no longer carry passengers. What a shame as this would be an awesome boat trip!

The nearest hotel seems to be Кедровый Дом It's a 2km walk along a road that none of maps consider walkable, but on OSM it is accompanied by minor roads which should be walkable. Note that they're not 2GIS, but on satellite view they're visible. They seem to degrade at the end of path but not impassable. The real challenge here is crossing major road at the ...

I'll work on this answer or I'll change it to an answer wiki if anybody prefers. Please let me know. This is just a rough version so far... FamilyMart : 3 X 20 minutes per day via email registration. May have seats and power! Look for イートイン "eat in". Can be confusing to get working and staff can't help. Lawson Station : Easiest konbini Wi-Fi to use by far! ...

The train tickets are around 25-35€ one way if you order them online, at least 1 month before departure. Just use the right price portal. https://ps.bahn.de/preissuche/preissuche/psc_start.post#stay BUT these budget tickets are dedicated to a specific train connection at a specific time. If you miss the train, the ticket can NOT be used for a different ...

Here an up-to-date answer 3 years after the question, just for further reference. I liked how fedorqui compared it, so I'll follow the same approach. I am surprised that flights were rarely mentioned, they can get very cheap sometimes! The search is done for the 17th of August 2018, about 1 month in advance: System Transport mode Lowest ...

Everything is free if you are under 26 years old, also the Trianon. There is just an exception: you can't visit the gardens when there are the musical fountains shows. As it says on the ticket shop page: Attention, on days with Musical Fountains show or Musical Gardens, access to the Gardens is free only for children under 6. Tickets for the Musical ...

7-11 and Starbucks also have free Wi-Fi. (I can't recall if McDonald's has Wi-Fi, but they tend to in most countries) There is also this "Free Wi-Fi Passport" offered by Softbank: https://www.softbank.jp/en/mobile/special/freewifi/en/ According to the site you only need to provide "mobile phone number, password, gender and age group". For that to work, ...

Rome2Rio shows a twice-daily bus route operated by Volanbusz: line 1060. However, there are also many rail connections that take less time and cost a similar amount, so that may be preferable.

Yes, easily. When I started my company a few years ago, I was living on this exact budget in Hamburg, which is quite similar to Berlin in living costs. As I was living in my own appartment, I had minimal housing costs (electricity, water, etc.). I also didn't own a car at that time. You can buy a bus ticket for the entire month, which will run considerably ...

According to booking.com, the hotel mentioned by alamar offers a free shuttle: https://www.booking.com/hotel/ru/cedar-house.html, so technically you won't spend money on transportation since you plan on staying in a hotel anyways.

The very flight that was the reason for my question has just had a price decrease: Google Flight price tracker. "Today" is 2½ months before the flight. So, I'd say that yes, prices CAN go down. I agree, however, that counting on that possibility is not a safe strategy.

I have been doing this many times, for flights, rental cars, and hotels, and never had any issues with it. Often you can save a lot, but it is not always cheaper; and you have to be aware of country specific regulations (and potentialy speak other languages - sometimes prices change when you switch the language). [Example: flights within Peru are extremely ...

You're in luck - some airlines in India offer significantly reduced excess luggage rates to those traveling internationally on a separate ticket. Flying on an airline with reduced excess luggage fees This is probably the best option, as you get to check the luggage with you and fly to your final destination. GoAir The airline I'd choose is GoAir, as ...

To use the WIZZ Discount Club, your girlfriend's ticket must be on the same booking as yours. Unfortunately you cannot add passengers to your booking, so you need to create a new one. But I assume that it will cost more so it's not worth it. From wizzair.com: Can I add more passengers to my reservation: Unfortunately this is not possible. You will ...

I just read about this on Air France this past week. See this page from the Points Guy for more details: Air France Le Pass (Note: I am in no way associated with TPG). What it looks like is that you can buy "Le Pass" for a given number of flights with a given amount of specificity on routes and timings. You can choose a specific route, or choose flights ...

You need to make sure that you have a metro card as you can not buy one at Hudson’s or any outlet in JFK. Take the Q10 Bus from T5 going to Kew Gardens union TPK Station.Get off Lefferts Blvd and Cuthbert Rd. From here you can catch the A or C train into Manhattan. If you didn’t have a metro card pay 2.75 on the bus so make sure you have change. This is time ...

There are a lot of good answers to this question. However, an answer that actually provides a complete overview is lacking. I recently wrote an article on my website where I covered all of the wild camping rules for every single European country. You can find that article here: Wild camping in Europe: Complete legal overview. Covering every European country ...

Using Booking dot com you can find in the whole country and filter by "hostel" so you can get at once all the prices. Specifically for Japan here's the link sorted by price and filtered to show only the hostels. You have more than 1000 options to choose from 7 euros. This is just an example and have in mind that Booking has not all hostels in Japan, but ...

I suspect you're correct; Taoyuan station to Taipei station is 52 TWD by local train, or about US$1.60. There is also the recently opened Taoyuan MRT Subway service via the airport, but this doesn't cover the old Taoyuan station (only the new HSR one) and is much pricier at 160 TWD.
