Also, check out this site TRAVELPUNK*
Go under worldguide, choose your continent and then country of destination and then go under the money tab.

in order to get an average of how much you will need to backpack you will need more details for your trip. ex: mode of transportaion, how often you you use the transportation, how much you eat, where you plan to eat(home cooking, restraunt, cafe, fast food), drinking (beer/wine/howmuch), bars, walking or subway, sleeping(cheap or expensive hostel/hotel/parkbench/tent), flying(peak or low season), and so on.

Its impossible to say how much one person will need. I spent as little as 30 euros (40 dollars) a day for everything and some people can spend as much as 120 euros a day. I bought a consecutive rail pass for 1 month for 600 dollars. Others may buy a 3 month long rail passes for a couple grand.

Here is a link to a post from a couple of months ago that might be able to help some questions Basics
