    How much money do I need saved when I arrive in Australia for a working holiday?

    Ideally, you will have lined a job up before you came. The job market is quite tight depending on your level of skill, where you’re located and what you’re willing to be earning etc. In saying that - I recommend you budget for a daily allowance of AUD$100 excluding accommodation. This is an over-cautious budget, and probably can get by on half. Breakfast - $20 Lunch - $20 Dinner - $40 Transport- $20 If you have an unlocked phone, go for the Optus pre paid. $30 per month will get you $300 worth of calls. Plenty of free wi-fi around, so get viber on your phone as well to make your international calls. In most capital cities you can purchase a weekly transport ticket that gives you unlimited transport for a week. For example in Sydney you can buy a $42 travel ticket for trains, buses, ferries and trams. Hope this helps. over 7 years ago

    How much is an appropriate amount of walking around money in Bali?

    Depends what you want to do with your day. If you want to go shopping, or just hang out and eat at street vendors. Daily budget should be about $20 without accommodation. And you might get change. USD100 is approximately 1million Rupiah. Without shopping for sarongs or getting your hair plaited, $100 should realistically last you a week! Here are some estimates of prices in larger places (not remote villages which are half the price) based on my time in Feb 2012. Bottle of water $1 Breakfast for one $3 Bintang Beer $2 Nasi Goreng for lunch $5 Mei Goreng or Nasi Campur for dinner $5 Cocktail for after dinner $2 Coke for hangover $1 Wine and sunscreen was really expensive in Bali. So ditch the wine and take your own sunscreen from home. Oh, and also bring Panadol for the hangover or heat stroke. over 7 years ago

    Any meditation retreat for Christian in Bali?

    There is a Christian church in Palasari (South West) where there is a fairly large Catholic Community and I'm not sure if they hold retreats or not. The village is well kept and the church is a lovely old white bricked building amongst palm trees and rice fields, and there is a beautiful resort close by on the lake (Taman Wana Village) - however I was there in March 2012 and the resort seemed deserted. There is also Protestant Church in nearby Belimbingsari. over 7 years ago

    Is it realistic to travel Indonesia on a daily budget of +- 25€ a day? Including hostel, food,... No luxury is needed :)

    Absolutely. (although the + and - suggest you have an open budget??) Java is probably the most expensive, but you can get accom for approx $12night if you're happy to forego aircon and a private bathroom. In other places, you can manage quite easily on 25Euro a day. try www.agoda.com and search for 1 star hotels - range from US$9 ++ per night. Meals - budget US$4 per person per meal Transport might get you out a bit - but not expensive Beer is cheap - wine is not. Wifi is available free in most cafes and hotels/hostels.
