When I went to Hokkaido in January, where it snows almost everyday in winter (average temperature in January is -12 to -4 degree Celsius), I decided to write a blog on how to pack for this crazy cold weather. For those you who don’t know, Hokkaido is Japan’s second largest island and is at the northernmost of Japan. Anywhere close to the North Pole is pretty cold in winter.
When Winny and I decided to travel extensively this year, there is one budget we kept to the minimal and that is the food budget. In total we only spent less than $2500 AUD per person for a whole year on food and we did spend some time in expensive places and countries like Iceland and Scandinavia region. One of key to eat on a budget is to cook when and where it is possible and appropriate.
