So 11 months, 14 different countries, and a load of fun (I hope!). Flights were £2000 alone. Jabs and medicine are going to be another £500. Insurance £400. Reckon its going to cost me £13k total – switch card taking a beating. Might just have enough to get by on if the job in Oz pays well. Eitherway – I'm going to be stoney broke when I get back. Hehehe…..
