Yes, you can eat very, very well on a budget this summer, fall or anytime across Europe. We know, we have at all ages, from childhood until now... What is your experience?
Advice on some of he best options for dining well on a budget, at any age, when traveling in Europe. Great and cheap local food is still possible to discover, buy, enjoy and even make.

Story
Tagline
Editor in Chief of TransitionsAbroad.com (a Travel, Study, Volunteer, Work, Living abroad online publication founded in 1977 by my late father, Dr. Clay Hubbs).
Introduction
Extensive travel/living/study abroad experience, but prefer to take travel slow and savor life rather than counting the many countries I have lived in or visited. Lover of life, literature, music, most forms of art, great food, comedy, with aesthetics as a religion. For more, if interested, see my bio.

Follow and see the www.TransitionsAbroad.com Google+ page for more of my posts related to  travel if interested.
Bragging rights
Proud to be the son of the two best read, well-traveled. coolest, and most empathetic of parents I have ever met. Professors only in name, lovers of great literature and conversation. I have met so many Nobel prize winners and other famous writers/artists through them in my youth I lost count. Traveled more around the world at a young age than most have or will in their entire lives thanks to parents and my own travel bug. See bio at: http://www.transitionsabroad.com/information/media/gregory_hubbs_bio.shtml.
