Have you dreamed of taking a round the world trip? You know the countries you'd love to visit. You even know which activities you'll experience.
Trekking in Nepal. Hiking to Machu Picchu. Diving in Australia!
But how much will your dream trip cost?
When you read other people's trip budgets online, it's anyone's guess how your own trip will compare. Personal travel styles impact every trip budget. This leaves too much ambiguity for those saving for their own round the world trip. Can you imagine how awful it would be to leave on a long-term trip and run out of savings before the end?
My sole purpose in this guide is to show you how to create an accurate anticipated budget for your dream trip around the world.
No matter your personal situation, this guide demystifies trip budgets and teaches you how to budget for your own travel style. You'll find knowledge from my own experiences affording eight years of world travel with advice from dozens of other long-term travelers.
This guide is laser-focused on empowering you to realistically budget for the exact trip that you want to take. It's a followup to the author's "How to Save for World Travel" — a guide to actually putting habits and processes in place to save for a RTW trip.

- includes a flexible budget worksheet to calculate and view every potential part of your travel budget. You can play with the time spent in each country, as well as the experience and watch how your travel choices impact your overall budget.

- helps you build a comprehensive round the world trip budget that includes all the countries, activities, and expenses unique to your situation.
A comprehensive companion worksheet leads you through each stage of the saving and budgeting process. No matter where you are in the process of planning a long-term trip, this guide offers practical, actionable advice that you can implement immediately.
