I travelled for 4 months around Europe last year and a lot of you might not know but that’s actually the reason I started this blog. I wanted to be able to share all of my experiences with you and everything I have learnt about long-term travel.
This has been a highly requested topic and I am so excited to be finally sharing it with you babes. I will completely break down everything I spent while travelling for 4 months through Europe.

Accommodation – $5,284
I stayed in apartments/private rooms when travelling with friends, shared dorms (6-8 people) when by my self and hotel when travelling with my mum. I booked everything through Booking.com
Paid Before: $2,745
Paid There: $2,539
Average Per Night: $62
This is for 85 nights I was not on tours, the remaining 35 I was a tour that included accommodation.
I really think I could have done the accommodation a lot cheaper if I had tried, however as I was travelling with other people so I also had to consider their needs as well. If you stayed in shared dorms the whole time it would be a lot less. My average cost per night during the time I stayed in shared dorms was $42.
Spending Money – $8,031
Budget: $100 per day
This was my original budget that I had planned to spend after doing some research on other people’s spending habits plus also adding in a little extra to make sure I wasn’t stuck with no money by the end.
Actual: $67 per day
Food – $3,232
Acitivies – $1,772
