“A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.”
Interestingly the cost of travelling alone (March – June) is about the same as travelling for two – sans the grocery budget!
Not in sexy graph form, but here are the totals:
- March: £792.97
- April: £1,274.98
- May: £1,021.36
- June: £1,081.91
- July: £1,597.60
- August: £1,133.93
- Total for six months touring: £6,902.75
Based off my expenditure, for a six month jaunt for two around these fascinating isles, you’re looking at about $8,000 NZD per person ($1,333 per month, all inclusive!) Add up the cost of your flat over six months and if this kind of thing rattles your dags – get in to it!
…I also know a guy with a van you could borrow…
UPDATE: A £711 MOT was had at the end of this – service, tyres, headlight, wipers, tow bar, both rear brakes. Keep a couple of bucks in the back pocket for unforeseen emergencies!
