I have a question tpunker's what do you guys think a trip around the world would go for? For two people.

This will be for a whole year. I would like to do this for a honey moon, when I get married. Just take off for a whole year, just me and my future wife.

I have been looking into plane tickets that go one way. About 5 to 6 stops, in different continents. and I have a year to redeem them.

by the way this is not a plan that will happen in the next year or so, its more like within 4 years away or so.

How much do you guys think I would need for a trip like this?

well, start with a prospective wife, man!
or do you have one already?

i'd say $35,000 total, all things considered - since it's a honeymoonal trip.

Ive recently priced around the world tickets, I think I pulled up a fare of 3500.00 USD at Airtreks. It went like this.


One way fare:
San Francisco to Sydney
Sydney to Auckland
Auckland to Singapore
train to Bangkok with several stops along the way (not included )
Bangkok to London (staying for 2 months and circling Europe)
London to Rio
Rio to Los Angeles
Los Angeles to San Francisco

LA was suggested by the system to save money

In the end it seemed a pretty kickin deal

They also have around the world cruises, which although likely more expensive, will mean you only have to pack/unpack once. Plus, I hear the ships are smaller, so they go off the usual beaten cruise line path.

I think I'd like to do that one day...plus, I bet they stop for more than one day in lots of places. Give you a chance to see a little bit of a lot of places.
