Anyone ever spent like six weeks in the UK? With just short-term, like three day Ryanair trips to the continent?

Ie based yourself in a certain city and got like two weeks of accommodation or whatever?

Was it cheaper? Was it boring?
If you’re only going for 6 weeks why bounce back and forth from the U.K.? Just travel the continent at your leisure.
So Cash or card in Europe? (popular tourist locations I’m heading to include Barcelona, Santorini, Athens, dubrovnik, kotor, messina, Naples, barecelona, Paris)

I have a skye MasterCard so planning to use anywhere for purchasing in local currencies where MasterCard is accepted - card has no foreign or conversion fees. Assuming can make most if not all purchases this way

If I carry cash for smaller purchases transport, markets, smaller shops without eftpos or card facilities I would use a money belt under my clothing to avoid pick pockets or missus day bag being knocked off

Thoughts/suggestions to the above?

Also what is Best travel adapter to use on a cruise ship us and uk ?

Cheers

I was considering getting an airbnb for a month or something, that way it's cheaper, and I won't feel too bad about leaving the place there by itself for 2-3 days on the continent. Might just be easier to start in the UK then spend the last two weeks going to three or four cities in Europe.

Eastern Block very underrated. Gets a lot more traffic now. The Balkans (other than peak Croatia), Budapest, Prague and Krakow are stunning places which are friendly welcoming and culturally unique. Turkish South Coast is still a quieter version of Sail Croatia and is even more stunning and the food is amazing. A month in Turkey and the Greek Islands are some of my fondest travel memories.

On the train now to Budapest. Have just spent 3 nights in Prague (my second time there now) and 2 nights in Mikulov and surrounding wine country. Look up Mikulov and Valtice if you haven’t heard about them and give them a look. Absolutely loved it, hired bikes and rode around the towns from vineyard to vineyard. Very close to
Vienna too. A great option to get slightly off the well worn track and away from the crowds.

Any Budapest tips welcome!

Church in the cave is worth a look.
