I’m keeping a monthly record of exactly what it costs me to travel. It’s an extension of my personal monthly money management process.
My hope is to remove the “it’s too expensive” excuse for somebody which would make me do my happy dance (you do want to see my happy dance don’t you?).
You can see my audits from previous months below:
I’m also keeping a record of the gear I’m carrying with me and update it regularly:
And without further ado…
JUNE ’16 TRAVEL AUDIT: HUNGARY, SLOVAKIA & POLAND (AGAIN)
Daily average by country:
Expenses by country and category (check the foot notes for more in depth details):
|TOTAL||HUNGARY (14 nights)1||SLOVAKIA (12 nights)2||POLAND (5 nights)3|
|Dining out||$227.68||$73.94||$129.99 5||$23.75|
- Budapest & Eger
- Kosice, Spišské Bystré, Tatranská Lomnica, High Tatras
- I stayed in private rooms thru Airbnb my entire time in Hungary and a week in Slovakia I spent in mountain huts which also are more expensive than your typical Slovakian accommodations.
- Could not be avoided while in the mountain huts in the High Tatras, Slovakia
- I got around a lot this month by walking
- Includes touristy things like seeing castles (2), vegging in Turkish thermal spas, and going to the Opera for the first time ever
- Maps, water canteen, replacement watch, replacement socks (1) and briefs (1), sleeping bag and sleeping mat.
$94.41 Unaccounted for [note] Split evenly between the 3 countries…should have been prorated but I’m over it.
- Stays in private rooms via Airbnb (Hungary lodging) and a week long solo trek through the High Tatras (Slovakia lodging and dining out, and almost all the gear) made the month more expensive than it otherwise would have been
