i'm planning on travelling for around 5 months - Australia 1 month - South America 1 month - Canada 1 month - North America - 2 months. Anyone have any idea of potential overall cost, including flights, accomodation etc.
A rough sum would be good
$9000USD minimum if you want to do much touristy stuff in the places but ideally a bit more.
Depending on which south American countries you are visiting the costs will vary, brazil and chile would be the dearest 40 to 50 euro a day and Bolivia one of the cheapest from approx 25 euro a day.Argentina would be approx 35 euro per day with decent hostels costing about 11/12 euro a night.
