costoftravelineuropeThat’s all I’ve spent in the past 30 days here in Kiev whilst doing little else but lift, eat, write and read. Living frugally is something I enjoy from time to time. The biggest surprise is that I only had 58 double cheeseburgers. If asked a month ago how many I plow through per month I’d have said something closer to the 100 mark.

Anyway, cheeseburgers aside, it’s been a pretty productive month as I managed to get a lot of things done. Now it’s time for a month long holiday in a country I’ve never been before. That will likely entail less food, less gym, more beer and lots of crazy sh*t going down.

I will miss the price level of Ukraine but it’s not like I’m traveling to Monaco. Switching gears, I will start a weekly Vlog if the demand is there. This is the first installment. If there are any specific topics you’d like me to cover, please leave a comment under the video ON YouTube  😉
