Can we do it on $20 a day each?
Is it possible for us to do it for $20 a day each, (ie $40 for the two of us) while not being totally deprived? We're camping, and campsites in caravan parks (ie with toilets. Because I need them, okay?) seem to be about $18-25 a night. Then we'd need food, and touristy things too I guess. Or am I being totally unrealistic?
Also on one night, one of the Extreme Wind nights we couldn't get our little gas stove thing to light and cook things, so we had to go out... unfortunately there was only one place open at that time of night ( if we'd given up earlier we could have got food from the supermarket and it was like the Gourmet Restaurant Pub of the whole peninsula. *facepalm* We considered driving elsewhere but the nearest towns that had pubs were almost an hour away and we didn't think about bookings since it was a friday night I believe... so we had to go with the restaurant pub. It was tasty and we had a great night, but that and the two nights in another (as cheap as we could) cabin, blew up our budget a bit .Plus we easily spent $20 a day on petrol... then we were doing touristy things.
I don't think we spent huge VAST amounts of money or anything though, I can't remember what it was but it wasn't horrifying, I didn't run out of money that I had on me for example.
It was a really great holiday though, even though we faced ticks, a huge black snake rearing up at us, constant flies, the windiest few days in a long time there, a lot of rain during the wind, a sprained ankle, etc. It was so much fun, we did a lot! Saw so many things, really bonded (I got my first ever 'I love you' from him! The tent was hitting us in the face but we were snuggled up under our sleeping bags, and we'd been woken up by it all.. and he said it as we were trying to go back to sleep. Aw!), saw some very rare animals, played on beaches and in water, met up with locals, went on walks, went to museums, braved swimming in between rainshowers/cold patches in Edithburgh tidal swimming pool, learned how to put up tents and cook outside, had spas and made some fantastic foods, and saw great fantastic scenery.
It was the longest he'd been away from home and I think it was really good for him too.
