hi,
I'm Andy and it's got to the point where i want to see some more of the world. but i'm in a bit of a pickle as i've tried to find rough guides to how much money it's likley to cost for the 12 months trip. there maybe a max of three of us going.
A bit about myself. i'm easy to get on with and will always try new things i don't mind the roughing it option and would love to camp for the entire journey but i also like a nice soft bed from time to time. i'm not bothered about living on a tight budget but a bit of flexibility is always nice.
trip itineray :- London
Singapore
Bali
Darwin
Sydney
Christchurch
overland to Auckland
Santiago
overland to Lima
Los Angeles
UK
these are openened filghts.

So please if you can offer any help in rough money guides it would be much appreciated.

Singapore - $25-30US a night
Bali - unsure but probably about $20-$25US a night
Australia - $50US a night (can be done cheaper depending on what you see and where you stay)
New Zealand - $50US a night (also can be done cheaper, but could be way more if you do anything at Queenstown)
Santiago - $30US (maybe more if you plan on going further afield like down to Patagonia)
Lima - unsure but probably similar to Santiago
Los Angeles - depends hugely on what you see and do but $50US if you want to see a bit but not a lot. You should also take the trip to Las Vegas from there as that is far more exciting than LA.

All of these prices are for one person, but could be done cheaper depending on how much fun (or how little fun) you wanted to have. The longer you spend in Australia/New Zealand and the USA, then more money you are going to need as those are the places that will chomp through your money quickly.
