Hi all- I did a bit of searching, but please point me in the direction if these have been answered. I am considering an ABD trip as a solo traveler in 2013. I've been salivating over the Central Italy itinerary & prefer the Europe trips. I know there's an extra cost if you're a solo traveler, but I'd like some input from y'all on what you spent in food, the extras, etc. Airfare isn't included I see, so there's that. So as I budget & plan for this, what approx should I expect to spend on the following? For this discussion, I'm not necessarily interested in the souvenirs part, I know that can vary wildly. I would also imagine the Euro/Dollar exchange rate influences this. *Meals not included *incidental costs (bus fares, tips, snacks, etc) *For your first ABD trip, what costs surprised you? Thanks, everyone! I'm hoping to make this work next year and so I want to start saving my pennies.
