Romanna’s Upcoming Eight Destinations in Europe for only $815

In about a week from today, Romanna, who was hired by SkySurf.Travel to travel to eight cities around the world will soon be traveling around Europe and posting her travel stories with photos and videos at this SkySurf.Travel blog and on social media. Make sure to follow SkySurf.Travel on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for the latest news and updates. For now, let’s learn more about her upcoming trip destinations:

Romanna’s journey starts May 21, 2019, from her hometown Kiev, Ukraine. She will spend about a week in each city to document her entire 2-month trip, and then return to her hometown on July 19th. All flights to 9 cities in Europe costed a total of $815, including baggage fees, using the SkySurf.Travel tool. Her first destination is:

1. Malta. Malta is an archipelago, one of the smallest countries in Europe, in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It has beautiful beaches, like Comino’s Blue Lagoon where people can take a swim in the aquamarine colored sea. Malta also has an equally beautiful island called Gozo, where people from Malta can ferry ride to. There’s much to do, such as visit the panoramic view at Upper Barrakka Gardens, take a sightseeing boat ride to Three Cities of Cottonera, and play at Popeye Village, which was the film set of the 1980 musical “Popeye,” just to name a few.

Romanna arrives in Malta May 21st and departs on the 28th. The total cost for this flight with baggage from Kiev is $131.


2. Catania, Sicily, Italy. Sicily is the largest Mediterranean island, just off the “toe” of Italy’s “boot.” It’s known for its delicious fresh fish and seafood; Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna; and where Homer’s Odyssey was set. Sicily has endless stretches of beautiful wild beaches with crystal-clear waters, baroque palaces, and breathtaking views on top of hills and cliff-top villages.

Departure: June 5
Price for flight: $41 total

3. Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon, Portugal’s hilly coastal capital city, is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe. It was built on seven hills so there will be lots of uphill walking, but well worth it, as the top viewpoints, called “miradouros”, have incredible panoramic views, such as to the castle, the dramatic Portuguese coastline, and to most of the city skyline. Lisbon is a stunning and charismatic city well worth the visit.

Departure: June 12
Price for flight: $94 total (indirect flight)

4. Ponta Delgada, Portugal. Ponta Delgada, on São Miguel, is the regional capital of the Azores archipelago, a string of nine islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 1,300 kilometers west of Portugal’s mainland and about a two-hour flight from Lisbon. One of the great natural wonders of the Azores archipelago is the spectacular volcanic caldera (crater) lake of Lagoa das Sete Cidades. A stunning panorama can be viewed from Vista do Rei, named from King Carlos’s visit in 1901, where the lake, consisting of two lagoons: The Green Lagoon and the Blue Lagoon, can be admired.

Departure: June 17
Price for flight: $83 total

5. Funchal, Madeira Island, Portugal. Funchal, the vibrant capital of Madeira, is a sub-tropical island in the Atlantic Ocean around 960 kilometers southwest of Lisbon. There are plenty of things to do in Funchal, such as strolling along the gorgeous waterfront, smelling flowers and tasting fruits at Funchal market, and marveling at the views from Monte cable car. Funchal is a wondrous island city filled with tropical gardens, phenomenal views, and captivating street art.

Departure: June 25

6. Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, is well-known for its art and architecture. The fantastical Sagrada Familia church and other modernist landmarks designed by Antoni Gaudi marks the city. Barcelona will make you feel like you’re living in a Dr. Seuss book. It’s home to Futbol Club Barcelona and was home to artists Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso. Barcelona is well worth the visit and you’ll be very glad you did!

Departure: July 4
Price for flight: $109 total (indirect flight)

7. Santorini, Greece. Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles. Some exciting things to do in Santorini are visiting the unique beaches in the Greek Isles, and Kamari, formed by Santorini’s volcanic history; exploring ancient ruins buried in ash (Ancient Akrotiri); and touring famous wine destinations. Santorini is considered a premier wine destination in Europe because the soil in which the wine grows in, which is partially composed of volcanic sediment, creates an interesting flavor difficult to find elsewhere.

Departure: July 12

8. Athens, Greece

And last but not least, Athens, which was the heart of Ancient Greece. About 400km north is where the Olympian gods resided at Mount Olympus, which can be clearly described in the classic epic Homer’s Iliad. The first ancient Olympic Games can be traced back to Olympia in 776 B.C. Some must-see sites in Athens are The Parthenon, The Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, and Herod Atticus Odeon. Athens has many monuments, memorials, and museums to visit with ancient artifacts and Greek art.

Departure: July 19 (Back to Kiev, Ukraine)
Price for flight: $120 total

How to Travel the World for Cheap

Do you have a desire to travel the world, but think it just costs too much money? If you think it’s too expensive, and money is an issue for you, keep reading this blog post.

Have you ever heard of an online service called ( What if I told you that you could visit 12 countries around the globe in 3 months for only $1,300 in airline tickets; possibly even lower?!

I’m about to let you in on a little secret that not even the internet knows about yet.  Why? Because is a brand-spanking-new website that was just recently launched.   Now is the time to take advantage of this online service for booking cheap flights to destinations around the world.

Here’s how it works: You simply visit and enter in your departure city and date.  For this example, I’ll use New York City (NYC) as my departure city and September 1, 2016, as my departure date.  You then select “Multi-city” and click on the “Search Best Deals!” button.  First, I want to visit a country in Europe and I want to spend less than $300 for the flight.  Browsing through my results, I don’t see any flights on that day that are lower than $300 to Europe.  I am pretty flexible with dates, so I click on the “Find the best deals for September 2016” link.  I have now found a flight to Oslo, Norway for $181 that departs on September 29!  I add it to my BookIt list by clicking the “+ Add to BookIt List” button.  The BookIt List is a list of itineraries that I’ve found on that I’m interested in booking later, kind of like a shopping cart or wish list, but for flight itineraries. Once the itinerary gets added to my BookIt List, a pop-up appears asking me if I want to fly to another random destination or fly back to John F. Kennedy airport or if I’m done searching for flights.  Since I want to visit 12 countries, I click on the “To another random destination” link, but first I’ll need to select my departure date from Oslo, Norway.  I’ve selected October 7, 2016.

Once I click the link, new results appear.  My cheapest option is to Germany for $40!  I add this to my BookIt List. No need to further explain how I get to travel the world to 12 countries for only $1,300, as you can see it in the screenshot above.  I just repeat the process by adding a week to my prior flight’s arrival date, until I’m finished and want a return trip back home to New York City.

Here’s my BookIt List of all the countries I want to visit:

Here are the twelve countries I will be flying to for about $1,300:

  • Norway – September 30 – October 7
  • Germany – October 7 -14
  • Poland – October 14 – 21
  • Italy – October 21 – 28
  • Romania – October 28 – November 4
  • Turkey – November 4 – 11
  • Azerbaijan – November 11 – 18
  • Iran – November 18 – 24
  • United Arab Emirates – November 24 – December 1
  • Sri Lanka – December 2 – 9
  • Malaysia – December 9 – 16
  • Vietnam – December 16 – 24

Here’s my entire flight route:

There you have it!  Twelve countries in three months for about $1,300!  I’ll be home just in time for Christmas to tell my family and friends about my three-month adventure around the world!

Of course, this is just the price for flights.  How much you want to spend on lodging, transportation, food & entertainment, etc. is up to you. You can find cheap lodging at AirBNB, or if you are the adventurous type and have a small budget, you can CouchSurf at or just travel with a tent.  You can buy food at supermarkets or go out to restaurants every day.  But if you’re looking for cheap; supermarkets, public transportation, and cheap-to-free lodging is the way to go.

Check out and come up with your own cheap BookIt List.  If you decide to book a trip on, send me links to your travel blog, photos, videos, etc. so that I can post them in my future blog entries.  The world is your oyster!

Safe travels!
