Budget while traveling

I am a details orientated person which makes planning and maintaining my budget almost fun. I know, I know, I’m a weirdo. For my current eight month trip I did an extensive budget. In total I had about 10,000 usd; a product of selling my car, graduation gifts, and working 60 hours a week for…
