In response to how we plan our travel, a colleague wanted to know how much the “ridiculous amount” I was referring to in that post amounted to. Well, I can’t give a specific number for obvious reasons, but I’ll try and publish some figures.

  • We set aside about 10% of our combined post-tax (take home) income each month in our Travel Fund.

  • Our annual travel budget is in the very low five six figures.

It is a “ridiculous amount” but our one indulgence.

Vinaya: annual travel budget in very low five figues? Then no more travel this year i guess since you have already blown up 20K in that Wayanad trip :-)
