I love Europe. Who doesn't love Europe anyway? But as of this time, I can only love them in pictures. I learned to love it even more when I saw KC Concepcion's tv special that showcased her lifestyle in Paris. Though she didn't stay in cheap hotels in Paris
, fact that the cost of living there is enough to get me an electric shock (LOL), is enough to stop me hallucinating to be a tourist of the beautiful continent.
My sister in law's good friend, Jamie just got her UK tourist visa. She is planning to apply as a nurse in Manchester though (she is a registered RN and recently passed NCLEX and TOEFL so from tourist, she's hoping to get a working visa. Since she does not have any family in Manchester, she worries about how costly it is to rent an apartment right away. She is tediously searching the net for cheap hotels in Manchester
. When I asked her, "Why not London? Isn't London the best city that represents the British culture?" she told me that those cheap hotels in London
is not as cheap as the hotels in Birmingham
. True enough enough, my good 'ol cyber friend Tita doritos (who beautifully sang A Little Tenderness
during our wedding) has once complained to me about the high cost of living there. If he is going to convert it to our local currency, he will probably have a bypass operation. But who knows, maybe after 5 years of sponsored blogging, I have saved enough to go on a trip with hubby in Europe. Hahahaha! Wish!
