How much would it cost for one couple to travel the world for a year with the following countries in mind:
africa - unsure where else to go in Africa.
Would like to get to S. America but we can appreciate that may be unlikely given time and money.
We're Canadian 30 year old flashpackers. I don't want to break the bank but I also don't want to break out in hives due to bed bugs. We're thinking private room hostels or cheap hotels. 12 months for the entire trip. Any comments on whether you think we're cramming too much into a year would also be appreciated. Any one else who has done a trip like this and has a budget they would like to share would also be greatly appreciated. Any costs that you didn't budget for and then were surprised with later?
I know the answers to these budget questions is usually "depends on what type of traveller you are or what you want to do while you're there", but any info would be helpful. Thanks!
