Berlin on a Budget

Dale Davies is a forever smiling Brit who chose to leave his retail hell behind him and make full-time travel a reality, and Franca Calabretta moved away from her home town of Alberobello in Puglia, Italy more than ten years ago, so often feels more at home while one the road. This duo is truly unique for a number of reasons; 1. They are budget travellers (though never let it make them crazy, if something costs 'this' much, they pay 'that' much), 2.
