Is this enough $« on: May 18 2007 12:05:00 »
Hi all, going to Indo for 7weeks, or 53days. In July / Aug time this year.
Can only take the value of US$1000, to live in Indo.
Will be doing allot of overland travel, ie to Lombok, lembongan, and Sumbawa. Only tacking ferries and Local transport like bimos etc.. Wont be on the piss too often etc..
What do you think, will this be enough?
Any suggestions on how to minimise living expenses/costs in Indo, in order to make budget?
If money left over, wantto org a local boat trip ,via tubes bar or something, hopefully get a week trip for under $250. What u think?

$143/week is do-able but it will be tight w/traveling and ferry expenses. Don't forget the exit tax at the end of the trip

Landing in Bali , will spend + - 12d's. Then will go to Lombok(Kuta), Landing in bali on the 25June, so will be in Lombok on the 13July.
Going with a total crew of 4. 3surfers and 1 bodyboarder. All ranging 4rm beginner to experienced.
May see u their. Will try to remember to ask for u, whem @ Lombok.
Shot for the reply. Can local transport like boats etc.. get pricey @ Lombok if used regularly, or if divided up amongst fellow surfers is it reasonable?

Shot for the reply Rick. Dont plan to drink often,and from what I'v heard and read, I reckon we will make it on $US1000
Have u surfed Lakeys b4, people say its crowded, but their are other decent breaks nearby aswell, which should break up the crowd factor, and if you go sparrow fart, or am I just being to optimistic, and not realistic.
What you think?
