Jump to last reply

gday guys,

So we are travelling at the end of the year and need some critiques on our trip.

We are planning to do as much as possible, as this is probably one of our last overseas visits before house etc. Winter isn't ideal but we still want to make the most of it. Need help from experienced people to tell us if stuff is impossible etc or better ways to do things. Also we haven't really worked out activities at each location yet, or booked our internal USA flights. Looking to do them ASAP as well as accommodation.

My primary interest is sightseeing, and Photography. Missus is into sightseeing, travelling, little bit of shopping.

Our budget is around 15 – 20k, but we worked it out and might need to stretch to 22k to maintain our 5k spending / activities budget.

Thank you very much,

Daniel
