So I'm a 27m Australian, leaving my career and off to begin traveling the world in July. I've saved up about US$10k, but that's as far as the planning has got. I've never traveled, but am not scared of experiencing something new. Please, all those sesioned travelers out there HELP. Where do I go; where do I start; and how long can I make my money last?
I've read a million handy tips for what to take, what's nice in each country, but I am after some bigger picture advice and would love some ideas on how I spend my year away from it all. I want to experience a new culture, to see amazing places, but not to blow my money to quickly.
If anyone has any suggestions, books, websites, personal experiences, please let me know.
