At home I wouldn' t have had to buy food, because I would have been living at my parent' s in summer. I spent less on accomodation than I pay for my apartment here. I spent less on travel because public transport is very cheap in Portugal compared to Holland.

Don' t buy food at the 'Pingo Doce' but at the 'Mini-Preco'. The last one is much cheaper. Doing something like this is always more expensive than you think. So save some money before you go!
