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!
