I am currently 26 and recently I quit my job and will be starting a new job in Nov thus I will have 4 months to solo travel. July-Nov
I am trying to decide between SA and SEA.
Countries I will visit if I go to South America:
Colombia – 1 month
Ecuador – 2 weeks
Bolivia – 2 weeks
Peru – 3 weeks
Brazil – 5 weeks
Countries I will visit if I go to SE Asia:
Vietnam – 1 month
Laos – 2 weeks
Cambodia – 2 weeks
Philippines – 1 month
Indonesia – 1 month
I really wanted to travel to India, but I believe it will be super hot and humid then, so I will have to skip it this time!
I am planning on budgeting £35 a day on average, excluding flights whilst also staying in hostels throughout, is this reasonable?
Has anyone done a similar trip? Any tips? Thoughts on travelling solo for a year? Any comments are more than appreciative.
If you have been to both SEA and SA, which one would you recommend doing?
I would really appreciate any tips/recommendations on which of these two continents is better to visit? Or if you think I should visit/see other countries instead?
