Traveling long term or just for a two week vacation requires a bit of preparation in terms of finances. Two ATM withdrawals overseas can cost you $10 in fees, add that up over the course of a month or even a year, it really adds up. Like everything else for our trip, we did a lot of research to determine what would work best for us.
When we began planning this trip we found it difficult to piece together a money plan. Some people posted some of their spending and some others had some suggestions on how to manage their money. To help others we provide both our spending by country, and the products we use to manage that money.
