After six months of travel across three continents and 10 countries, here are our actual costs laid out.
You've planned, you've saved, you've made a million reservations. Now you're on your trip! As far as money goes, the fun is just getting started. It's tempting to spend like crazy when you finally embark on a new trip. After all, you're on vacation, right? Well, for those of us with tight travel budgets, we can't go crazy. And we need a way to track expenses so we know where we are with our budget.
It feels good to be kicking our budget's ass this much. We feel like we're really splurging, but that's taking on a different meaning here. Sitting on the street outside of a hostel drinking crap canned beer while the sun slowly slips below the horizon feels exceedingly satisfying. It feels like enough to do in one evening.
