I've made up my mind that I'm going to go across The States, then to New Zealand, then to Australia, and then Japan and back home to London. I'm really gonna go for it. Also I'll be looking to do odd jobs along the way. How much do you think I would need? Never done anything like it before but I'm assuming I'll need thousands. Perhaps someone reading this has done it and can give me some advice. It'll be very much appreciated.
Short answer is: A lot.
Always depends on how long you go for, where you find work and what you get up to.
Youve picked some expensive places though but don't be discouraged, as long as youre clever and reasonably resourceful itll work out, it always does.
or you can try to do everything by hitchhiking like i am gonna do to save some money
and live of nature
but it's al up to you
the more luxe you want the more money you will need....
