I spent less in Austria because the country does not rip you off for many everyday products like Ireland does. Shopping in the Supermarkets like Billa abd Aldi saves you a lot.

There was no real storage area for food so bought it every day, international calls are expensive, made the most of my year abroad with international students and travelled around Europe- Czech Rep, Hungary, Germany and around Austria.
