The first thing that comes out in our mind when we think about travelling is how much will it cost us? How much do we need to save for the trip that we dreamt of? Do I have enough cash for this travel? Travelling should not be an encumbrance, but a commitment to yourself to take a break and have fun once in a while. This will take more patients when it comes to preparation.
From my 2015 Japan Travel, I didn’t got too much of a problem since I already have a fund to use. At first, I questioned if this will be in acted. I do believe in the words “expect the unexpected”, until my co-officemate booked a ticket 45 days before our trip. When she did that, I said to myself “This is it.” For this time around, 2017 Japan Travel, I really need to break a leg to save up. The remaining deposit on my bank account was at its lowest, and need to start from a scratch. Nevertheless, our willingness to take this trip with my college friends was then stronger and finally set our mind to do it. We made a planning then booked a promo flight from Cebu Pacific 7 months before its departure. We then waited for another local promo air fare and we just did.

Based from the above computation, it did cost me 19,204.50. In addition to this, I did bring 30,000 with me for my expenses for food, transportation and other unexpected expenses. However, I didn’t used all those amount, and bring some of it when I came back from Japan.
