Before we left for our trip, Toby poured over other blogs in order to get a better idea of how much to budget in each country. As an expression of thanks to those writers, we have decided to share our own data with other planners. I hope it is useful! We welcome any questions you have.
This daily cost is for two people and does not include flights to or from countries, or extras like insurance.
Our typical style of travel includes basic private rooms with bathrooms (with exception in Israel, Greece, and China where we used dormitories or shared accommodation), local transportation, some taxis, basic restaurants, and splurges when needed. I would classify ourselves as “upper budget travellers” as we often choose to pay more for a higher level of comfort.
FYI – Our overall, all-inclusive cost per day for 709 days of travel is $123. This includes all flights, travel insurance, and storage back home, but does not include gear purchased (e.g. SLR camera or laptop).
