Jennifer and I want to be transparent about how we live and what it costs to live the full-time nomadic lifestyle. This is our first year of full-time travel. If you have questions about anything let us know. Ask anything. We won’t be offended. We are still learning and we know things will change. This is our full-time travel budget and real expenses for the first year of life on the road.
Our full-time lifestyle is a minimalistic one, but we do like to splurge on entertainment & sometimes food. We wish we could afford to do more of both. This is our full-time travel budget in real numbers but obviously depending on what you travel in, where you stay, what you eat, and where you visit will all factor into the cost of living on the road. It can be done cheaper and you could very easily spend way more
Why are we putting this here?
Our goal is to inspire some out there to rethink the way you are living your life. We only live once and although it may be difficult we are free, at least in America, to make our hopes and dreams a reality. Your dream may not be like ours but it might be. I hope that this entire website inspires people to rethink what is possible.
July 2018 – June 2019 Travel Expenses
Conclusion for our 1st Year’s Full-Time Travel Budget
While we didn’t meet our goal of $80/day, I still believe that this is an achievable goal. Our numbers were heavily skewed by one very large vacation expense and a stupid decision that got us stuck in the mud with a hefty tow bill. Still, $83.26/day for two adults to travel and live on the road full-time isn’t too bad. Let me know what you think in the comments. Do you think that is too expensive or are you rethinking what it costs to live in a traditional way?
Going into year 2 we will update our expenses every 6-months. We will also be increasing our daily budget to cover our desired lifestyle so look for that information here in the future.
