Hey all!

If I stick to my financial plan, then by this time next year, I shall have paid off o/draft + credit card, and have about 300 / 400 pounds saved.

Soon after then I will be setting off travelling for a long time (at least a year I'm planning) I have no destination, just a desire to explore.

I was wondering whether leaving with 400 pounds is stupid or reasonable? I wont be living it up and spending lots of money. I only need the neccesities. I plan on staying in hostels / under the stars (where possible)

Also, do you think that enough money can generally be made through busking on streets in order to survive?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks, Dave.

Hi,

I think you should travel with more money in your back account... or just ask any travel agent to get you a loan so you can pay it back to him later... My policy is to enjoy luxurious travel once in a year at least...

Thanks a lot for reply.

Yer, I agree with having more money. I think i'll aim for about 2,000 to be safe. It'll take longer, but no doubt better in the long run.

Cheers!
