Making a budget

It doesn't take a big fortune to travel the world as a backpacker
Regrettably, an exact mathematic formula to estimate how much your backpacker trip is going to cost does not exist.

Generally speaking, though, expenses fall into two different categories: Expenses before your trip and expenses during your trip.

Expenses before you go consist of vaccinations, travel gear, visa, flight tickets, travel insurance and, perhaps, expenses in relation to adventure trips, language school and/or various types of courses and activities which must be booked and purchased in advance.

Living expenses during your trip consist of food, accommodation, local transport and various other expenses on the way.
