The life in Portugal is cheaper than in Belgium but we liked to visit, to travel, to eat outside, ... because we are not in our country. We wanted to discover.

Definitely go shopping to Mini Preco and LIDL supermarkets if u wanna save on food. The DIA trademark products are the cheapest ever. Obtain a MINI PrECO club card to get even more discounts. If u want to live cheap u can rent a room/house/flat with other students but it is never cheaper than 120 euros/month. A big surprise was that we had to pay so much for our campus residence. Beware of taking too much luggage on cheap ryanair flights through London Stansted because they may fine u there! Another big finansial surprize was the cost of travel by bus within portugal and the cost of tickets for music fests and concerts. If u want to buy the cheapest and the best fruit and vegetables, go 2 Arcadagua fruit shop near the faculty. The cost of drinks in nightclubs is huge! And the cost of things like manicure, pedicure and cosmetologist is immense whereas the quality is not worth this money.
