November 1 / Finances

Bolivia was undoubtedly the cheapest country I had been in in South America. Unfortunately the expenses below don’t reflect that but there were extenuating circumstances. Staying at a party hostel was a necessity. I needed the diversion and a place to recharge and connect with people. I also stayed in…

I had no intention or expectations of spending so much time in Peru. To be honest, Peru never really held all that much intrigue for me. Sure there’s Macchu Pichu and while working with Peru Hop on their old site, I learned about the desert in Ica, and a couple…

My time in Florida was spent at my Dad’s and my Aunt’s so housing costs were nil, but I still had lots to buy to prepare for the trip so travel investments were high and well, the USA is all-around expensive so it’s not surprise I still ended up spending…

Travel spending The financial portion is more about having a quick reference I go back to than anything else, but it’s also to help provide some context for those interested in traveling and seeing how someone else spent. You may spend more or less at every location. We each have…
