I will be travelling for a year with my girlfriend in february 2010. As we are saving at the moment we need a general idea of how much each stage of our itinerary will cost us.

Heres a general idea of what we have got down already, any help on if we would need more money for any of these countries would be much appreciated. This is the budget for 2 people NOT including accommodation.

Thailand (1 month) - £1500
Indonesia (1 month) - £1500
Australia (8 months) - £3000
New Zealand (1 month) - £3000
Fiji (14 days) - £1000

Whilst we are in Australia we will be working for some time but we also wanted to visit a uluru and do other activities whilst we are there. Would this amount last us long in Oz or would we need to start working fairly quickly?

The NZ budget is slightly higher as we would like to do rather costly activities there too.

Any help and tips on this would be much appreciated.

Hey! You missed Singapore in your list! haha! Singapore is so nice and so advanced, hence you will miss a lot if you and your girlfriend won't come here...hehehe...

As for budget accommodations, will recommend checking from -snip-site.

I'm really telling you, Singapore is so great!! I am a foreigner working in Singapore and I love it so much here!! Very advanced country.

Have fun in your travel!! :)

Sounds fairly cool, definetly going to have to work in Oz. Singapore is worth a few days if you are near there but it was expensive in comparison to Indonesia and Thailand.
