I am 21 and from Brazil, I`m planning a Gap Year trip and plan on travelling solo for 11 months (I won`t be able to stay more than that, as I gotta be back to Uni). I have an idea in mind. I thought a lot and came to the conclusion I can have a better value of my money if I make almost everything overland(more adventurous too) instead of purchasing a RTW ticket. Can you guys give any advice on the following destinations and see if our budget is realistic?
Fly from Brazil to London... Spend:
London (already been there) 4 days
Brussels (already been there) 1 days
Cologne 2 days
Hamburg 3 days
Copenhagen 3 days
Stockholm 3 days
Helsinki 2 days
St Petersburg 3 days
Moscow 4 days
Trans Mongolian... Spend:
I thought about a week for the Lake Baikal region
about 10 days for the other cities along the railway, like Kazan, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk
and also like 10 days for Mongolia - I would like to make a trip to see the Gobi Desert
thought about 2 months, going from Beijing to Nanning then crossing to Vietnam
is it feasible going to Tibet, have in mind I`m heading to Vietnam afterwards.
Vietnam... Spend: 5 weeks
Cambodia... Spend: 4 weeks
Laos... Spend: 2 weeks
Thailand... Spend: 2 months
I would spend something like 4 weeks on the beaches and islands, so it would be a month for bangkok and the rest of country, Chiang Mai, Ayuthaya and others.
Malaysia... Spend: 2 weeks
Indonesia... Spend: 2 months
I imagined a month for Bali (is that too much ?), and the rest for Java, Lombok, Flores (I would like to go to Komodo too)
Timor-Leste... Spend: 1 week
and fly to Singapore... Spend: 1 week
Fly back to Brazil.
I understand that some of the countries (e.g. China) we will not get to see much in that time but we will concentrate on a smaller region.
I should have about approx $14,000 saved up for 11 months of travel after flight between Brazil-London and Singapore-Brazil, injections,travel insurance etc. Would you say this would be enough to cover these countries in the time period above?
Also if anyone has got any advice on the above i would love to hear
Thanks in advice.
