For longer trips I really like just going and seeing what happens and where you end up. Some trips require a lot more planning and this was one of them – we had 9 days to fit it all in!
These posts won’t be so much about the amazing time we had but about the logistics and cost of everything – so that others can see how easy and inexpensive it can be. We were on a moderate budget and stayed in mid-range hotels, ate at nice restaurants every meal and didn’t limit our excursions so our costs are actually pretty high. You could do this trip for less than half of what we paid if you stayed in hostels, made your own meal once or twice a day, and limited the excursions.
