The True Cost of Travel


2017 USA Travel Expenses

First Uploaded: April 30, 2017 |  Latest Update: April 30, 2017

Earlier this month, in the post New York City On My Mind, I wrote that I had begun booking events in advance of my upcoming summer visit to that great city. On April 13, after booking return tickets from Adelaide, Australia to New York City, it occurred to me that it might be interesting to document every expense, no matter how small, that I will incur for this extended three month stay in America, most of which will be spent in the Big Apple.

I plan to account for my expenses across four major departments: Events & Activities; Food & Groceries; Transport & Accommodation; and Shopping & Sundries. Note: All figures in the tables are in Australian dollars. The running tally at the bottom of the screen grab below includes the total U.S. dollar amounts. Here's where things stand as of today ...



Total Expenses to Date: AUD$3660.95  -  (USD$2742.96)

NOTES
Figures are rounded up or down to the nearest five cents. Due to the constantly fluctuating exchange rates between the Australian and American dollar, anyone checking my figures will almost certainly find their own calculations differ.

Also, I don't depart Adelaide until mid-June, so don't expect major updates or additional expenses until I hit New York.
