I'm trying my best to do a tonne of research before i commit and book anything.
Here's some info about myself and my vision.
I'm a male 26 years of age, I'll be 27 during my trip. I have a current full NSW drivers licence.
I am very much interested in archiatecture and history and strange/interesting places. I'm even more interested about massive things. Ie World's largest cruise liner, Tallest Building etc etc.
I'm a nerd i love Harry Potter and Star Wars. I love Space and all things scientific.
I like to think i'm a pretty funny person, i got the best sense of humour, i'm lazy, i'm energetic (sometimes) I can and love to party hard. I have a small gambling addiction which isn't a good thing. I am terrible with money. I will be travelling with a friend of mine he is 25 - similar interests
I will have $9,000 saved by the time of my trip. I could have about $5,000 in available credit on my credit cards. Basically i want my entire holiday paid for before i embark. So all i need to worry about is to have enough to spend on food, drinks, theme parks, tourist places (if i can pre pay them that would be awesome) and whatever else.
Fly - Sydney to Los Angeles (5 nights)
Drive or Fly - LA to San Francisco (2 nights)
Drive or Fly - SF to Las Vegas (5 nights)
Fly - LV to New York (5 nights)
Drive or Fly - NY to Washington D.C (2 nights)
Fly - DC to Orlando (5 nights)
Drive or Fly - ORL to Miami (2 nights)
Cruise - MI to Bahamas (7 nights)
Thats 33 nights.
I want to see/do:
Universal Studios? - I'm going to Disneyworld should i bother with this?
Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Hollywood Sign? - Worth seeing close up or just from afar
Santa Monica Pier? - Not sure about this
Yosemite National Park? - It must be massive will i have time?
Six Flags - Too many theme parks will substantially increase my spending money?
San Diego Zoo
Walk Of Fame?
Alcatraz? Is it worth seeing, I get the hype but i feel like i'll be bored
Golden Gate Bridge
Transamerica Pyramid Building?
Circue Du Soleil?
NY Roller Coaster?
Buffet at Wynn?
Spa at Bellagio?
Britney Spears Planet Hollywood
Tao, Tabu, The Bank etc
Canyon Ranch Spa?
Hotel Bellagio or Ceasars Palace?
Statue Of Liberty
Grand Central Station?
Radio City Music Hall?
Sony Wonder Tech Lab?
NY Hall of Science?
Bodies The Exhibition?
The White House
Universal - Harry Potter
Oasis Of The Seas 7 night cruise (Nov 1)
I'm estimating about:
$50(if we are lucky) - $200 a night for accomodation 28 days - 35 days = $1400-$7000
$1000-$2000 - flights to the US return = $1000-$2000
$1200-$2000 - Cruise ticket (not including spending money) 8 days = $1200-$2000
$50-$200 - a day for spending money = $1400-$7000
All up the entire trip could cost anywhere between $5000(I'd be soo excited but i know it's not realistic) and $18,000 for just one person. I'm expecting the entire trip to cost $10,000 (Well i'm hoping)
Can you guys tell me if i am being realistic or if i need more money
all your ideas and suggestions and anything will help
