29: How to get a free day when travelling

July 31, 2018

In this episode, I talk about my recent trip to Milan in Italy, where I was able to enjoy a full day without spending any money.

I wanted to show you that it does and can happen. It's great to just enjoy and embrace a culture and reflect on the experience that you’ve already had.

It’s also the perfect way to complete your time in one country before you move onto the next or before you head home.

Free day

Morning - Tour of Milan city – lasted about 3 hours
- Really good tour, led by a local Milanese man. Learnt about the history in Milan
- Mixed group of people

Afternoon – Walking around Milan solo
- I spent the afternoon walking around the high end fashion stores daydreaming and being absorbed in the fashion
- Absorbing the Italian culture and just relaxing
- Sitting in parks and people watching

- The hostel where I stayed gave free breakfast
- I took fruit, crackers and cake for my lunch
- Evening dinner also included which was pasta and salad, fruit and cake

- I had pre booked and paid for my hostel on a 2 night deal

- I had paid for a metro ticket on a 24 hour deal the day before and therefore included the entire day


Free days allow you to just relax and enjoy being where you are.

Free days are not about short changing people or cutting corners, or cheating people.
