Monthly Budget Update – August

budget

This is our last budget update before we begin traveling. From here on out we are planning to do individual country wrap ups which will explain the specifics of what each country cost us. I think that’s a lot more meaniful than a monthly update, which will be highly dependent on where we are, etc. That said, I was considering doing 6 months updates on our actual budget since that is a bit of a landmark in terms of travel.

The following should give a good sense to readers as to how much money we are starting with before we set out. It will also address some of the expenses that we have incurred along the way.

We have a few final checks coming our way from unused vacation and our last week of work (in a week or so when we get this I’m simply going to update this, if anyone is interested).
