Well, this is why you should have a contingency plan folks. So far I have blown m,y budget out of the water. Some things were out of my control — a couchsurfing host cancelled last minute, a previously researched train ticket was not the advertised price. Some things were absolutely my fault — not booking my Nice hostel ahead of time, stupidly booking a flight to the wrong city, etc. the only place I went under budget so far has been London. I thought it’d be about $250 usd for my three days there (stayed with a friend so no hostel) and I ended up spending about $180 usd. Paris has been a budget breaking $100 usd a day (including travel to there from London) and Nice looks to be shaping up the same way. I’m going to have to figure out a way to get some of that back nix Italy :-/. Luckily for me, the Australian dollar is taking a nose dive so my US dollars will stretch a bit more :-). That’s it for now but I’m hoping to figure out how to post videos in the next couple days!
