Four months later…

Hello fine folks,

On June 6th, my gloriously fun filled four month trip around the world came to an end. I definitely had a wonderful time exploring many places that I’ve always wanted to see. I’m currently getting settled back into life in the States and actually planning what my next trips for the year will be. But here’s some details regarding my 4 months away:

Places visited:

  • Hong Kong
  • Macau
  • Singapore
  • Thailand
  • Cambodia
  • New Zealand
  • Finland (for less than a day, though)
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Germany
  • Amsterdam
  • Belgium
  • England

Favorite places:

  • Chiang Mai, Thailand
  • Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • Lisbon, Portugal
  • Almost all of Southern Spain!
  • The Mana Retreat Center in New Zealand

Costs of trip:

  • It’s one of the things a lady mustn’t talk about! But seriously, the trip cost a total of…

$9700

This is definitely more than I thought it would cost, but still cheaper than it would have cost to stay in my apartment in New York for four months. Even though it kind of stings to see the monetary amount, I definitely do feel it was cash well spent.

I have a ton of photos and a whole bunch of stories to still share about my trip. So, thank you for reading and stay tuned for even more posts!

Thank you for reading!

Marilyn

    Heyy I didn’t know you went to those other places in western europe!! I’m glad you put the number out there though- its pretty good considering just how many countries you covered! I wonder if it would be more economical to just target different regions (like SE asia in one trip, europe in another, etc) or if globetrotting is the better option.

      It definitely is more economical that way. Staying in one local just ends up cheaper, not only because you save on big traveling costs (intercontinental flights) but also, the longer you stay somewhere the more you find ways to just make it cheaper. But then again, if you stay in one place you miss out on the other places you might want to see, so there’s that cost involved in staying in one place too.
