Boxed wine on the streets of Madrid and Grenada were pretty amazing.
As an austrian i have to throw in my own country. In Vienna we even have a whole culture around eating and drinking on the street in enclosed areas outside of restaurants called “Schanigarten”.
While not year round, the tiny Sierra Nevada town of Nevada City has pretty liberal open container laws during many closed street events (you’re not stuck in a beer garden).
Lisbon, Portugal is a great city for walking around and drinking and so many other things. If you buy a beer from a market, they’ll even offer to open it for you. Another bonus is that most of the town squares and parks have kiosks with sheltered and umbrella seating that serve beer, liquor, and wine. Some of them…
I experienced the same in Japan. I couldn’t get beer out of the vending machines but luckily there was a 7/11 every block.
“Not only is street drinking legal in Copenhagen, it’s socially acceptable and encouraged.”
Dublin! The friendliest city-and sitting outside with a pint in the sunshine at 10pm is just heaven.
Hong Kong was pretty awesome to drink and walk. With stores along the way to re-supply your thirst-quencher, it’s the only way to go up and down that massive escalator.
Many cities in Mexico allow this as well and it is super common in the Balkans.
Cities that treat adults like adults? Weird.
It seemed like drinking while walking around was frowned upon in Japan, but it was acceptable if you were stationary or on a train. I saw several beer vending machines in Osaka and Kyoto. The only ones I saw in Tokyo were in hotels.
Many German cities are great for cruising with a drink in hand. Munich, Dusseldorf,…
I’ve been working as a freelance transcriptionist for six years now. If I gave you a dollar figure what how much I earn a year, you would laugh. I earned three times as much as an employee for the Canadian federal government with paid holidays and benefits. But I had to take my time off when the boss told me I could…
My niece (now 5) has flown regularly (2-3 times a year). Since she was old enough to eat them a bag of Gummies Bears as a treat and to help with take off and landing pressuring has been her trick. She also buys a new toy and downloads a new app so that there is something new and exciting to do on the flight. If you…
We just took our first flight (together AND with our 14 month old), and it went better than I thought. We flew on Spirit, which again, was better than I heard. We splurged on the Big Seats in the front and it was worth it. Most surprisingly, there was room to change him in the tiny bathroom! There was a little table…
I’m conflicted. We’ve flown with our young children, it wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t a breeze either. We’re trying a driving vacation this summer. I would say that flying with infants sucks pretty hard, and no amount of prep is really gonna fix that.
I’m just here for the avocado toast
I’m actually going through these steps despite having funds to spend. The wife & I agreed on a recreational budget. She’s figured out hers but I’ve gone through my entire wishlist but haven’t pulled the trigger on any of it. Any time I think about getting myself something, I instead feel motivated to go through…
Eventbrite is a good tip because it will take event’s you’ve signed up for in the past and suggest similar ones. They also have a lot of free events.
What about Ibotta app? I love it because you don’t even have to have it out at the store, you just take a picture of your receipt afterward and it takes off the coupons you saved! (I promise I have no stake in this company, just really like the app.)
Twist - sometimes friends only seem to be making more money than you, but have a lifestyle that is inflated past what they’re making.
