    Yasss cant beat living off the jam sandwiches! Agree with you on the tourist attractions usually being some of the least interesting part of a journey.

    Enjoying the journey and videos you have been posting. Its now going to get all the more interesting with you two starting the Asia section of the trip!

    I have saved up 7500 US to go on a three months cycling trek, starting off in most like Nice and down South to Cartagena; where I have to be in Ibiza for work for four days. Then I am going to fly from Ibiza to Amsterdam, and after work there for four days (work for a concert promoter), I am going to go Amsterdam to Prague through Germany (with many stops along the way). From there my intentions are to most likely either go to Italy or take a hopper to India, though I’d not be opposed to biking through the Balkans. My intentions are to eventually end up in Rio for the Olympics, My budget, though I am bringing 7500 US, is 2 Euro a day, and of course 50 each time, one night, in the bigger cities, to enjoy some good wine and food, or what’s the point. I can do snails and grass and ramen 10 days straight, but in Rome, or Prague or Venice or Rio, I want to go see a few locals hangouts and by the bar locals a round; im surely not going to invite them back to my tent free grazing in some wooded area and talk about my urine color from all the biking Ive done.

    Do you think I am taking too much, too little?> How much would you bring?

      Thanks for the question Kip. As you can see in the article, we spent £700 (~$1,000) in the same time/place that you’re taking $7,500 so you should have plenty. If you’re taking too much then perhaps you’ll come home with enough change to plan another trip.
