Hi I have just been hit with the shock that work will be cutting my days from 5 to 3 meaning a massive chunk out of my wages has been cut, and that I won't be having my pay increase (from apprenticeship wage to min wage) until my certificate is here which could take months anyway onto the problem.
I am now on a VERY tight budget here's what I have:
I can save around £690.
Splitted into sections:
My tours cost just over £200 leaving £490
My hostel £100 leaving £390
My attraction entrance fees around £100 leaving £290
Travel Expenses-£12 for Cesky Krumlov return, and two 3 day passes-£20 Leaving approx £260
Food Allowance, here I have allowed myself around £10 a day as I won't be eating out at restaurants or more exepnsive places, I have set aside £15 for the railway restaurant though. Leaving £185
I have set my shopping allowance to £130 at the minute leaving £55 extra incase needed for anything. And as I used a online currency converter to convert the czk to gbp it probably isn't 100% right so this £55 will hopefully cover any difference.
Does this sound ok? I was really hoping I would be able to buy loads of souvenirs ect what exactly could I buy with £130, I wanted things like books, a marionette, smaller souvenirs, gifts, maybe a few new clothing items or some boots. What are the prices typically like?
Also I don't drink beer or anything like that while I'm away alone, all my night venues will be covered in the tours budget, so how much spending money (meaning for food and souvenirs alone) would be spent on average a day?
If my certificate comes through before I go in March I will have around £200 more which will make my trip comfortable knowing I won't be too restricted, but I wouldn't want to take it all over in czk incase I didn't spend it all so is there anywhere in Prague where you can exchange gbp to czk?
