My budget- 30 months worth (34$ a day)
“How did you afford all this travel?”
It’s not really that expensive. About 1000$ a month-give or take. Since not a lot of people post their budget- I thought *I* would! (I’ll probably regret it later).

I bought it piece-meal. I did use frequent fliers for a few trips (Singapore to Dayton, Kili to Cpt, etc) But a lot of times I just relied on finding good deals as they came.
This is the most expensive by far. Let me clarify what this is: I would withdraw a week’s worth (màs o menos) of money from ATMs (using a AAA pre-paid debit card). I would use cash to pay for food, lodging, small gifts, local transport, entrance fees, etc. This was my “living money”, basically.
- I slept in hotels so very rarely that when I did- it was a treat.
- I hardly spent any money eating out at restaurants. When I did, it was a treat.
- Don’t expect to shower/shave every day. (Or be clean for that matter).
- Be cautious, but don’t let it run your life- because shit will always happen.
- Check/empty ALL your pockets before dropping off laundry.
Biggest tip I wish I did: Plan less.
