Matt’s Stats: Budget Recap

Prior to leaving for our trip, Phi and I set on a budget of $50K to last us for 6 months of travel.  After the dust settled and we arrived back in the United States, we calculated that we were able to travel for 6 months for just a little over $38K.  I thought it might be helpful if I shared a little bit about how we spent our money.  If you’d like some travel tips including how we saved money, take a look at this link.
