Hey everybody, first time post!
So I'm leaving for Sydney Feb.1 and making my way up to Cairns. Then flying over to Auckland, busing it (unless I can afford to rent a car which will be unlikely) down to Christchurch and flying back to Sydney for my return flight back to Canada! Will be backpacking, I also have a great tent and all this top of the line camping stuff to go with it so I'm hoping to cut down on hostel costs a little bit and camp whenever it's safe and available. Plan on using the Greyhound bus service in AUS.
My budget after taking into account transportation expense is this:
$60/day for food/accommodation/entertainment
$1,000 for scuba diving (I will need to get certified)
$1,500 for extra activities along the way as the $60/day won't cut it for all the tours and extras.
Any thoughts on this budget guys? Not that I can do much to change it, that's all the money I have and the flight is already booked. I guess the question is, will I come home with debt?
