I didn’t skip anything I wanted to do, we didn’t suffer, we stayed in nice places and saw all of the things we wanted to see.
I kept food separate because I went to out eat for every main meal at a nice restaurant for the last half of the trip. If you roughed it with food, you could spend less than I did. I spent $470 on food and wine, for a total cost of $1,246 with food.
PER DAY COSTS:
$31.04/day for basic travel
$18.08/day for food
