im Defiently going away this year on a RTW trip, i wanne go away for as long as possible, and i'm planning on going to these places :

Bangkok, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia(all over hopefully), New Zealand, Fiji, Cook Island, America(LA, NYC, Las Vegas)

Just wondering, if you are, or have been on a RTW trip, how much to save, i'd hope to stay away for as long as possible, has anyone done it on a tight budget that could fill me in on how 'tight' that budget can be, lol, i'd say i could have about 3000 GBP (4230 euro approx), how many months do u think that would last me?, could i travel for a year on that somehow!?!, just want your opinions on it, i know a load of m8s who are in australia and some that are going out and will be there went i get there, so, maybe when i get there i could get a job or whatever(not plannin to if i dont have too), dunno.......anywayz, are you about to set off on a similar trip?, how much did you save for it? any info or Advice mucho appreciated .

Hey Eamonn,

No worries on the thread. In response though, I would say that your budget is probably a bit low to not have to work along the way. You can definitely get work in places like Australia though - lots of pub work, fruit picking, telesales kind of options for backpackers.

Welcome to the site :)
