6 Months of Travel done... Look at my spending statistics!
I'm sure your post will help many others with their own budgeting.
ETD: five years.
How long are you planning your RTW trip to be? 1 year, 2 years??? Just curious.

Nice job on the detailed financial analysis, but what I'm wondering is how you can enjoy visiting so many places in one month. Britain, Holland, France, Monaco, Spain all in one month? And the same for many other countries. Perhaps you've been to these countries/places before and so you are hitting your favorite spots or trying out new places or just singling some things out. It appears you enjoyed yourself, which of course is the aim, but did you really experience the cultures? Just curious...
Good question, thats why I spent 2 additional months in Spain just for studying... Monaco is a tiny country and there is no culture except for being obscenely rich. But I see your point... but if i were to spend many months in every country i visit i would have to live to be 300 years old. I have to see a lot of countries and pick and choose which ones to live in for awhile.
Max is awesome.
Then as i continued to read on I stumbled upon this gem:
"I only have one weak spot and that is for romance."
With all the travel, languages & good times all I can think now is:
Are you James Bond?
No, seriously...are you?
Furthermore, who are these women and where do they come from?
New York City, United States
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Prague, Czech Republic
About 30 to 50 euros a day. I ate in restaurants, and at home, stayed in hotels, went touristing.
I can't conceive of spending 15,000 dollars in 6 months.
There is never an easy answer to this question, what is one persons tight budget is another persons over the top budget.
It varies not only with the countries/towns/cities you travel in but accommodation, transport, eating expenses, going out, drinking, misc expenditure, site seeing etc etc.
The costs quoted here did seem more than I would spend but having said that when we did our round the world we did quite a bit of camping and cooking our own food, we travel on local buses, and don't drink much and this can make a huge difference to your expenditure.
