Budget elaboration… Uh?

Looking forward packing for the first time but wondering where to start? The first step in planning a trip (especially when you are a poor student) is evaluating the cost of the whole trip.  Here is the outline I builded to plan my trip budgets. While first items absolutely need to be considered, last items are optional, depending on the kind of trip you are looking for.

Necessary expenses

  • Transportation to reach the destination
  • Transportation while there 
  • Insurance
  • Lodging
  • Food
  • Activities
  • Sundries (from gifts to new toothpaste) 

Optional expenses

  • Pre-departure purchases (new bag, water filter, etc.)
  • Special medication or vaccines (and medical appointments involved)
  • Visas
  • Volunteering opportunities (costs and saves are to be considered)
  • Courses (ex. language school)
