    Hi there – I’m Nicola from the UK.

    This has been super helpful – thank you!

    I was wondering if you had an idea of your budget during this time? Looking at doing a similar trip for 2 weeks.

    Thank you!

      Hi Nicola! The biggest chunks of your budget will go to lodging and gas/petrol – so it depends on what kind of places you’re comfortable with staying at. If you want to cut down on costs, you’ll be able to find a number of motels/cheaper hotels along the way, or you can opt to splurge at a few places with more boutique accomodations. In terms of fuel, gas prices are tricky to provide estimates for as prices are always fluctuating, so I would suggest mapping out the trip on google maps and plugging in the mileage to get an approximate idea. Then the main last part of the budget will be for food – so that again depends on if you’re eating at diners along the way, stopping into grocery stores or finding higher-end restaurants to check out.

      I hope that helps! I’d recommend joining the TBA Travel Tribe on Facebook and asking the ladies there, too. 🙂
