Financial Friday 49

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 49, and the end of the year….

Transportation

Zero. I went nowhere this week, and walked when I left the hostel.

Accommodation

For December, it’s $3.75 per night. I’m not sure what I’m paying in January as I haven’t paid yet, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be under $4 a night. So to err on the high side, I’ve gone with $4 per night.

Food

So….parties on Sunday and Tuesday aside, there isn’t much happening here. It’s so cheap!

Other

Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

VPN: $0.26 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

This blog: $0.31 per day.

This was the second least expensive month so far! My wallet is looking really good.

And for the year…. I started traveling in late January so this is roughly a month short of a full year, but…. In 2018, my expenses came out to $12,097.80! That includes a week in Iceland, a little under 3 months in Greece, a bit over a month in Turkey, and about 7 months in Georgia. So, for all my fellow Westerners that think full time travel in affordable, well…you’re just wrong. I’m pretty sure most people earn more than this with their side-hussle(s).

So my challenge to everyone is to get out, and see the world. It’s a fascinating place that’s full of opportunities.

I’ll see you all next week….
