We left home in June 2018 with the goal of traveling in South America for one year with a budget of $10,000. We are 7 months into our trip and wanted to update everyone on our budget progress. The not-so-big surprise is we are over budget by quite a bit. In this episode we discuss our mindset behind choosing the $10,000 goal and breakdown our spending to date. We also leak some details about our future plans for travel over the next few months...you're going to want to check this one out!
