Purchased Ticket to Vietnam!

I officially have my ticket to Vietnam this summer! I’m excited about that, even though it presents me with some new challenges that I’ve never had to conquer before. Specifically, I’m referring to money.

The trip is going to cost money, obviously, and quite a bit at that. Raising the cost even higher, I plan to be going to Indonesia and Bali while I’m in Asia as well. It’s gonna be the most expensive month I have ever lived through. Here are my calculations so far (there may be more to discover later)

It's impressive the kinds of things you can fit on a scooter... even Live PIGS!


Cost of Trip:

Plane Ticket (USA – Vietnam): $1522

Plane Ticket (Vietnam – Indonesia): $200

Plane Ticket (Indonesia – Bali): $70

Multi-Entry Visa (Vietnam): $70

Visa (Indonesia): $10

Passport: $135

Shots (to prevent sickness): $200

Then add expenses from the trip, like purchases, souvenirs, and gifts

Obligations from Michigan:

Rent: $216

Car Payment: $100

Car Insurance: $80

Apple (paying off laptop) :$20 minimum

PayPal: $20 minimum

AT&T Wireless Bill (that I won’t even use): $50

Utilities (from May): Varies… Average obligation is about $130

As you can see, I have a lot of work to do to catch up to this amount of money. Luckily, the ticket has already been purchased (still have to pay it off though). I’ll be sure to keep everybody updated as time goes on!


In the meantime… check out how insane traffic is there. These people are crazy with those scooters!
