Hi every one

I am about to embark on round the world adventure, however I am getting money worries before I leave (probably a bad omen)

I plan on visiting the following countries (Flight is booked and paid for and doesn't need to be included in my travel spends)

Costa Rica - 2 weeks
Peru - 1 month
Bolivia - 1 month
Paraguay - 2 weeks
Argentina - 1 month
LA - 2 weeks
Hawaii - 1 month
Fiji - 1 week
Sydney - 1 week
Indonesia - 3 months
India - 2 months
Nepal - 2 months (mostly trekking AC, EBC etc)
Hopefully back to indo for 3 months to surf some more!

Between two people we have roughly £20,000. Do you think this will cover such a journey?

Thanks in advance!

The Budget Woes if we travel to the places like Crotia, Spain, Greece, Italy, Sweden and some other places in the Europe are the cheapest places to visit for anykind of tourists who can afford a little Budget to the visit......

Hi Dan

Depending on what you are planning on doing while you are out there (skydiving everyday or just hanging with the locals taking it all in will obviously make a huge difference) I def think that will be enough money if you are not planning anything too crazy. You are spending a lot of time in Sydney and Hawaii, not to sure about H but Sydney will put a big drain on your budget if you are not careful.

I find setting aside a dedicated amount like £1,000 for my time in a city then working it out daily so over one month totals £33 a day really helps me when travelling through cities. I then know that £15 will go towards accomodation, £5 for food and then I can save the extra £13 today by visiting free attractions so tomorrow I will have £26 to visit something else.

We are doing the entire Southern Hemisphere next year on £15,000 each including Aus and NZ so I don't think you will have a problem with your budget. I know someone who travelled nearly the whole of Africa on a bicycle with £1,000 in his account and still came back with change so whatever your budget you will be able to make it work!

Have a fantastic trip!
