The two types of cooks (quote)

On Mike Dariano

I was coming to recognize that there are two kinds of cooks: meat cooks and pastry cooks. The pastry cook is a scientist and works with exact measurements and stable ingredients that behave in a predictable fashion.... Meat is done when it feels done.

Travelling cheap in Europe and Scandinavia.

On Ideas in the Making

Everyone wants to travel cheaply for the most part. as of not too long ago it was thought that only those with a lot of wealth or business expense accounts could travel. Thanks to travel blogs and a bunch of other things that has kind of waned. While there is tons of info on what to do, here are some tips that I haven't seen too much, specifically for europe.


1. Get on alert list at kayak and other websites like momondo. Kayak and Momondo are my favorite, sometimes one has better prices than the other, so use both. Momondo covers more obscure airlines for the most part. Other sites are google flights hipmunk and skycanner. Set up multiple alerts for top cities in europe or where ever you want to travel. put the alert price around 20% lower than the average price. sometimes out of nowhere you can find insane deals saving you 20-50% on flights.

2. Book early. For the most part booking early is better. Use the tips above to get alerts, and when you see a flight on a timeframe that is good for you book it.

3. Be flexible. When flying to a general area be flexible. I wanted go to Barcelona this summer to start more europe trip, but ended up going to copenhagen to see something new and because it was 200 dollars cheaper. I also didnt mind leaving a couple of days earlier.
