Ok guys, I have €4000 saved thats approoximatly 3000 english pounds or $5000. Im really looking foward to do a world round trip though i know I have very little money saved. i guess i could buy a ticket for 1000 pounds but then im just left with another 2000 pounds to spend. could any one recommend me a cheap route that would get me through with this money. I travelled around nepal, india, sri lanka 2 years ago so wouldnt want to repeat that. Maybe south east asia and somewhere else? would it be better to buy a return open ticket instead? im thinking of stayin in cheap places and budget as much as i can! thank you in advance!!! Any suggestions are welcomed!

Hey there Libra,
In my experience, it's better to leave sooner rather then wait till later (ie never). You can always go back home and make money, but the longer you take the make the plunge, the less your chances of ever leaving.

If you're creative, you can even make money while you travel. Check out -snip-, and come up with your own ideas. I'm open to hearing 'em, as it's pretty much what every long term traveler wishes they could do.
