I struggled with the idea of making our budget public. The thought of making all of our spending open to scrutiny makes most of us squirm. However, while researching our RTW trip, I found it very difficult to get a real idea of what if might cost us and so I decided to be transparent.
It is what it is, and cost us what it cost us. Why shouldn’t I share that with others that are interested in doing the same thing. And to those of you that are just shamelessly interested in what it cost us I ask you what did you do with your salary last year?
Here’s a link to our daily budget while we are on the road. We will keep it up while we are away. Every dollar…tracked.
We have an average daily budget of $100 (Canadian) per day and will compare every day to this average.
The budget is broken up into 5 categories:
- Food And Booze
- Ground Transportation (Air transport is dealt with on the summary tab)
Update: You can read our post, OneGiantStep RTW Dollar By Dollar, to see the final numbers and to understand our level of travel and where all the money went.
