    I am planning on doing this tour on the 10th May!

    I plan on budgeting $150 AUD per day!

    Some days I figure Ill spend more, and other days less however I have read somewhere that 100 EURO should be enough!

    I plan on doing the 25 Day Camping in June. I did the London to Athens tour earlier this year and I think if you budget $100 a day you’ll be fineSmiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Thanks guys!!
    I was thinking of aiming for $5000 AUD for the whole trip, but even that may be hard to do!
    Im a student and only work casually, so looks like i will be working my butt off to save!! hopefully its worth it!!!

    As Dory says “Just keep swimming!” if this is your goal you can do it!!!!

    And everytime you go to buy something you dont need think about what you could be buying in Paris or Italy!!!!
