So What Does a Trip Around the World Cost?

Leah: It only took 6 months, but I finally finished the master budget for all you inquisitive minds, and also because I want my sadistic, manic and meticulous record keeping preserved for posterity. My categorical breakdowns intensified as the trip progressed; while I didn't even have "tours" and "entrance fees" categories in most of Central/South America (and lumped those costs into "other"), they later materialized and affected the column totals accordingly. I know I'm probably the only nerd who truly cares that I wasn't consistent the entire time, but that's my disclaimer. Alright, enough of the banter: CHECK OUT THE GRAND TOTAL HERE , although I've included a few random fun facts by the numbers for you: 597: Number of days we traveled abroad. 88: Days spent in New Zealand, the longest we stayed anywhere. $17.74: Lowest cost-per-day average for two people (Ecuador). $176.15: Highest cost-per-day average for two people
