By the time I left Italy it was apparent the trip’s per day cost would be substantially less than expected.
Cost Per Day including everything but airfare – USD $97
CPD by currency, converted to USD:
Kuna (Croatia) – $76
Euro (Italy, Slovenia, Montenegro) – $102
BAM (Bosnia) – $61
If you’re wondering how the average could be $97 despite spending few days in Italy and Slovenia, all the non-trivial pre trip expenses were paid in USD.
Costs were tallied 2 ways, by ATM use and daily expense recording. It was easiest to track ATM withdrawals by currency type. I could have broke it down by country but I did the calculations right after the trip while suffering jet lag so it didn’t seem worth it at the time. Still doesn’t.
