  • Kids' Perspective Family Travel

    FYI – For a family of 4 (housing, food, transportation) we spent about $70 per day in SE Asia, $100 in China, $220 in Singapore, $160 in Japan, $200 in Australia, $200 in New Zealand. You could do it more cheaply but we were staying at Airbnb's not hostels which accounted for the majority of the daily cost. To stay on budget we spent more time in SE Asia and less time in other, more expensive, countries. The cost of food in Australia and New Zealand was expensive. *Not including airfare between countries.

    Spot on. I'm spending around $25/day in Asia and $45/day in Europe. Have visited 20 countries so far but none outside these two continents. Not using the round-trip ticket since I'm an Indian citizen and need to go back to India for each visa application (weak passport holder expense)

    The fact the bare minimum backpacker budget is 20k makes it demotivating. Especially since 20k can take a lifetime to save. Has anyone traveled with that amount of comfortably?

  • Kuba Michalski

    Does anyone here know what are some cheap (and relatively healthy) ways to eat in USA? I got cheap flight, accommodation and transport idea. It's just food that I still can't figure out. And is eating from bins really safe or is that a myth? Thanks for your attention. Cheers.

    Loved the video! I am ready to do this again – 25 years later (25 year hiatus raising a family) . So here are my long ago experiences that may be worth looking into. I hopped aboard a tall ship as a deck hand and sailed from England to Australia. We stopped in the Madeira Islands, the Canaries, Cape Verde Islands, Brazil, (almost Tristan da Cuna – but the weather was too rough), So. Africa, Mauritius, and finally reaching Australia stopping in Freemantle and then ending up in Sydney. There are still quite a few ships out there (especially out of Australia but some in the US) ) where you can either get paid a stipend or negotiate to work for travel. There are many stops along the way and you may have the opportunity to work for different ships from one place to another. Its a small community of sailors and they all pretty much know each other.
    My other thought was was considering container ships – sometimes they have space for travelers or at least they used to. Also, Vagabrothers, you totally skipped Africa! There are quite a few non-conflict areas to explore.

  • Helena Cora Moran

    Oh, and I forgot to answer your other questions. Yes I totally thought that your findings were a lot cheaper than I thought.

  • Stylish Loser

    QUESTIONNNN , is the one year travel ticket only for Americans ? or is it an international thing? ..never heard of it .. awesome idea but I am not American , thanks in advance

  • Gary Alan

    great stuff. i appreciate the estimates, particularly 18-22,000/yr for around the world, but avoiding the most expensive locations in western europe, etc. i'm trying to come up with a travel and living overseas budget now and comparing it to my current cost of living per year in NE TN near the world famous Appalachian trail. i can generate income via the laptop, so anything cheaper than my current budget is gravy, investments, or party money.

  • Stormzy Coinlife

    you can do some crypto-trading while on travel also, but you have to learn it first, so you know its profitable, but 2019 is THE best year to buy in and 3years from now, you will be able to travel wherever you want. Be sure to thank me later if you notice the potential of this info!

    to me working while travelling defeats the purpose of travel and vacationing. I work 9-5 6 days a week. So when i take a couple weeks off to go somewhere, i want to comfortable, eating, living and riding in the finest i can afford without breaking the bank.

  • Supergreenangel

    Working towards traveling for 2 years around the world starting January of next year!!! I would agree $20k is enough to be comfortable and not miss out on activities avoiding the most expensive areas.

    Hey I am a senior in HS. I will graduate in June and I still haven’t figure out what to do with my life. I am an A/B honor roll student, but I do not want to go to college (I don’t want to be in student debt lol). I was thinking about military (Army). My goals in life is to travel and explore the world. I am from North Carolina, and stay in Virginia. I want to see more of the world than what I am used too. Watching this video makes me want to become a world traveler too. I wonder if the military would be a good place to start?

    Certain locations should be treated with extreme caution because, though some good people live in these places, they are major centers of devil worship and satanic rituals. Specifically, these include Paris (France), West Los Angeles (California, USA), Boca Raton (Florida, USA), Palm Beach (Florida, USA), Washington DC (USA) and Brazil.

    My wife and I spent $33k for 12 months and kept a very detailed budget. We traveled in 4 continents and through 30+ countries. We have a detailed budget overview here:

    I also built an excel tool that lets you track your own budget. It graphs and lets you compare average costs from various countries. Hope you enjoy. You can download here on it here:

    I'm taking off next year for around a years travel. Aussie here. 6 months of it are hiking and the rest is just where ever I get too. I have an around the world first class ticket with 6 stops to get me going. The rest I have no idea so this really helped. I'm old but a newbie so all advice is welcome. The budget blew me away. I've set aside much more plus I have income while I'm away. I might not go home. Thanks again. Xxoo
