I know this topic has been done to death and everyone has a different answer.
I am travelling to Europe in December and am there for 10 weeks, 3 of which I am on a tour for and 7 of which I am travelling independently through Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, and Turkey.
I am targeting at this stage 8k to spend and have drawn this conclusion as follows:
24 days of tour = $1920 (based on 80 AUD a day for any food not covered and misc expenses)
Optional Extras = $800 (have allowed to do everything aside from ski diving and skiing at this stage as I have done them before)
7 weeks of travel = $4550 (Roughly 95 AUD per day to include everything such as hostels, food, souvenirs.)
Train Pass Global = $ 730 (every day within one month, extra flights etc budgeted for)
Have I gone too lightly?
Should I be looking to save more.
Any help and advice on cutting costs / where to spend more time would be greatly appreciated.
