Westward around the world – Original 2 year plan (notes)

I just thought I would post this in case it gives anyone information and because I am tired of seeing it in my “Drafts” section.  Obviously, this was from when I was planning to go for 2 years starting with the drive to Vancouver and the $900pp (sigh) cruise.

 

health insurance: $2500 for 1 year

Aug 16-Sept 10 drive to Seattle. 61 hours and 3870 miles incl stops in Cleveland, Michigan, Denver, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco, and Seattle where we ditch the car.  gas: (20 mpg, $3.50/gallon) $677,  food $500? (25 days), lodging (tent camping, staying w/friends) $500 or less? + about $1700. budget $2000 to be safe

Seattle to vancouver greyhound  4 hours $100

Sept 12- Sept 27 Vancouver to Tokyo cruise (15 nights)  ($900 x 6)= $5400

Tokyo to Shanghai by ferry 48 hours ($170 x 6)= $1020

air bnb place in shanghai for a night or two – I found a place that sleeps 6 for $59/night

Shanghai to Xian to see terra cotta warriors – $30/person for recliner seats, trip is about 20 hours.

Shanghai to Cambodia

April-June Turkey. eastern europe

July-Aug western europe and could go back home after 1 year.

Aug 20-27 Westbound Cunard transatlantic Hamburg- NYC $1500pp x 6= $9000 (should be less since not all adult tix and we will share cabin)

around same date Hamburg-NYC by plane about $1000 pp = $6000
