A few things to note:

Airfare/Train Cost – We are budgeting airfare, trains, and general transportation from one destination to the next in a separate budget from our daily budget.   We’ve over spent here but we’ve also prepaid a lot of air travel in advance so it should even out over time.   We are also taking a detour to Costa Rica for Merritt and Katherine’s wedding.  That’s included in the cost here but wasn’t included in our original 10K budget assumption.

Daily Budget – Right now we are in good shape but we are about to head to Fiji/NZ/Australia which will be some of the most expensive destinations on our entire trip.

South Korea –  South Korea was cheap for us almost entirely because we stayed at a friends house for 8 total nights at no cost.  This was a massive savings for us!   Thank you Kris and Melissa Johnson, I owe you and your family for the hospitality!

  4. The lost items crack me up!

  5. Eric, why are you loosing things? lol!

    • Apparently when you are in a hostel with a shared bathroom and leave your stuff in there it gets taken each day. Lesson learned! I lost my fitbit charger before we even left Dallas…
