- Cost per day for survival
- Adjusted cost per day
- Absolute cost per day

This chart shows the average amount I spent per day in each country. The absolute cost is the total amount of money I spent in the country divided by the number of days I spent there. The adjusted cost removes unforeseen expenses that could have occurred anywhere, like a new laptop or cell phone. The cost for survival also removes special(and usually expensive) activities like scuba diving or rock climbing. All costs include travel, phone service and the like. Small countries that I spent little time in like Singapore and Brunei can be misleading since travel costs represent a disproportionately large portion of the daily cost, as it does with island nations like the Philippines where I had to do a great deal of air travel. The amount that I couchsurf, hitchhike and travel with others also obviously has a great impact. I didn't spend money on housing the first month I was in Indonesia. Splitting room and transportation costs with others also makes things cheaper.


Breakdown of travel type

This graph shows the primary transportation method used to get between large destinations. Usually a combination of methods is used so I try to pick the one that took the longest. The breakdown is by number of trips, by distance traveled is below.
