Im from wales(uk). I want to travel scandinavia(for 1 month), head down to germany(week) then fly to australia(3 months working visa-3 months traveling) then newzeland for a few weeks, fiji, then hawaii on the way back home.
Does anyone have any idea how much scandinavia will cost? (Hostels, train fares, campervan ect.)
Will it cost more to fly from germany to australia with tax?
Any idea on how much it will cost all together?
Would prefer to do all in one go, but is it more realistic doing europe another time? And go thailand, vietnam, hong kong and bali instead?

In my opinion you can do Europe at anytime as we are so close to it all. I would do Asia instead as Scandinavia is very expensive.

I will do a lot more of Europe at some point but I would rather see the rest of the world first. That's what I'm doing sept next year

Just my opinion though

i have a house atm, but looking at renting it out for 18 months

if you would prefer do europe more than asia thats upto you, all im saying is we have easy access to europe and can easily do long weekends or a week away to 1 or 2 countries in europe

its just my opinion at the end of the day, but having been to some of thailand, cambodia, malaysia, philippines and singapore already i know my heart lies with seeing the far away places whilst i have chance and then those closer to home can be done at any point in my life

Yep you can do Europe in weekend sized chunks anytime, especially with cheap flights. (I'm currently in Dublin for the weekend on a £13 flight! :-) )

Better to have longer away on your long haul trips, if that makes sense.
