    Oooh...haven't been to Norway, but that is supposed to be the most expensive part of Scandanavia.

    I split time between Stockholm, Copenhagen and Linkoping (Sweden), plus brief stopover in Helsinki.
    Done that trip twice,about 6 weeks all up.

    Linkoping was the cheapest for food, Copenhagen most expensive of those. However I was working in Linkoping, holidaying in Copenhagen, so definitely going to nicer places when I was in Denmark.

    Love Copenhagen. But my wife was unimpressed with how quickly I found a way to burn through cash.

    Extended pub crawls through their exceedingly good draft beer scene...

    Traveling can be affordable, even when visiting an expensive country it's possible to save some money. Book everything in advance, better to stay in a hostel or rent an apartment, it will be cheaper. As for food, you can cook by yourself. Also, look for cheap flights travelsites.com/blog/how-to-find-cheap-flights/

    I haven't done martial arts in almost 2 years and this past year I've been losing interest in MMA. I am more and more tempted to do De Nord instead of Far East

    Is it nice and cold in October?
