Remember 2008 when the markets crashed? That was actually caused by a huge portion of people living on credit and living past their means. Unfortunately, in 2017 there is evidence it’s happening again. People are racking up debts on credit cards, going on holidays that they haven’t paid for and buying home furniture they can’t afford.

There are some moments in one’s life defined by a specific sort of ‘enlightening’ event during which you just suddenly understand what someone with whom you previously interacted with has had to deal with in their lives, like one of your school teachers perhaps, or even your uni lecturers. That’s that moment when you can almost literally see the satisfaction filling up inside of them when they witness one of their students go through that “ah-ah” moment — that moment when the light which they’ve been trying to turn on finally switches on.

This is something that is a little out of leftfield for my blog but, it still relates and it also helps that I’m a fresh out of Uni student and planning to go on my very own budget travel trip around Europe. I’ve saved since I started this blog and I’m getting a good way toward hitting my savings goal but I’ll only hit my target come January (if my calculations and predictions are correct) so I’ll be booking and hoping to get on the plane come February.
