how much money is best to save before you head off?

22. Posted by iamNATx (Budding Member, 43 posts) 17 Sep '12 12:02

aha yeah, well it took 3 years ;x
not easy, but it's done ^_^

i am hoping to take about 1,000 spending money, and have at least 1,000 emergency money left in the bank

i'm still wondering what to do though
i'd rather do a trip with someone
turns out it's going to cost pretty much the same for me to pay for someone to come with me as it is for me to do an escorted tour ;/

yeah, likewise
i had it in the back of my head for the last few years, but never really *planned* anything
now that i have enough money i'm trying to make plans but everything is failing >.<!
i know i have to go, because it's something i kind of need to get out of my system
i feel like my life is on hold until i get this out of the way

when were you thinking of going?

Im exactly the same.. feels like somethings missing.. dont know what but i feel like that a big part and i want to see as much of the world as i can..

im going on holiday next july so hoping next september time.. but dont know how much to aim to save.. i wont be able to afford to go this year which is dissapointing.

well a year is good
that should give you time to save

i guess it depends aswell on whether you want to just holiday, or if you're going for a few months maybe you'll be able to work whilst away too

maybe you can just come with me this year lol!
