Our initial budget was $15,000 Cad for our trip. This included all pre trip costs. This is our final total expenditure was $13,113.40 for 143 days of travelling.

So there you go, at $91/day per couple or $45.5/day per person including the pre trip expenses backpacking around the world isn’t so expensive.
It was have been even cheaper if we had skipped Italy and went to Spain & Portugal instead since we hemorrhage money in Italy. Had we couchsurfed our stayed in dorm rooms instead of mostly in private rooms we would have made our trip even cheaper. However, in the end we were under budget and that is all that matters!
Until next time!
