Would this be a good Backpacking budget for a whole year? What kind of places could you visit/see? (I asked about before but then in Dollars)?

€ 18.000, is this for only one person, or a whole family??

Hi Marcus,

That's a pretty big warchest! I left with €11,000 and that lasted me a llllong time and I didn't budget a cent. I just lived it up and had a constant party for more or less a year.

If I had been smart I could have made it last twice as long. A lot is dependant obviously on where you are going travelling - if you're hitting all the expensive cities in the world it will dwindle much quicker than if you're travelling in India, South East Asia, South America, for example.

But I would say you have nothing to worry about! That amount will definitely last you for a year's backpacking without having to work along the way. :) And if you make it stretch a bit, you should be able to travel for longer.

Yep, I spent 6+ months travelling on about £7k, and didn't skimp on anything, and came back with a little change, so with that money you're unlikely to have too many problems, backpacking.

So what part of the answers to your previous threads did you not understand?

And why should anyone bother trying to answer you yet again if you don't go into any details, and will just keep answering in one sentence posts, if at all?

Marcus - I suggest you make up your mind about where you want to go and what you want to do. As Sander has pointed out, you have started several threads asking the same question - regardless of the type of money (USD, Euros or whatever) you plan to use. Get with the program or expect deletions because you are walking a thin line between a relevant thread and duplicates of your previous ones. Basically, come up with some new questions and include information for a change. People like information.

I agree - it's getting a bit annoying, and it's rather disrespectful to people who have taken the time to reply when you then go and ask the same questions repeatedly as if you have just ignored what they have said.

you could go incredibly far in cheap digs, eating locally, travelling on local buses and targeting cheaper destinations OR spend the lot in a week by booking out the presidential suite at Amarvilas in Agra and drinking expensive champagne, smoking big cigars and enjoying the company of one of India's top female escorts.

Tricky one to answer with any confidence.....
