Here are the answers to some of your questions:

How much did you save?
After selling all my stuff, and paying off my overdraft and credit cards, I had roughly £6000 ($9000US). This isn’t a massive amount of money to travel on for a year, but if you budget right then it’s still more than enough.

What was your budget?
On average I spent 20-25 USD a day. This worked out as more in certain places (e.g. Europe, Dubai) and less in others (e.g. India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Indonesia). I stayed in hostels and dorms everywhere to keep the costs down and ate mostly local street food or cooked myself. I didn’t do any organized tours and prioritized the tourist attractions I wanted to pay for. I travelled slowly and learned to barter – everything is negotiable.

What countries did you visit?
The countries I went to in the past year, in order, are: Spain, France, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, UAE, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. I’m currently in Australia on a working holiday visa saving up for the next leg of my trip.

What did you edit with and what were the cameras?
I used Premiere Pro CC to edit the video and it was all filmed on a GoPro 3 Black and Sony Handycam.

How has this trip changed you?
One of the ways in which this trip has changed my outlook is that I want to lead a location independent life, at least for the next few years. This means I just want to continue traveling the World, working off my laptop and picking up extra money where I can. What I really want to do is show people first-hand how possible it is to travel the world on a budget. Before you do it, it seems like an impossible task and often people don’t believe that it is viable on a budget of 20-25USD a day. That’s what I want to make my life about and use my channel for.
Hopefully with your support, I can make that a reality.

Any more questions, please post them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
