Ask the Hedgehogs

Over the years we've received tons of emails and questions about our trip around the world and our travels since then.  And we absolutely love helping out other travelers whenever we can – after all, we can't count the number of folks who helped us along our way and continue to do so too!

Below are our responses to some common questions we've been asked, as well as actual emails and the replies we wrote to fellow travelers.  New questions will be added from time to time.  And if you have a question you'd like us to weigh in on, just drop us a line at jessica_and_timothy@hedgehogswithoutborders.com and we'll be happy to help!

How Much Should We Budget?
A fellow traveler writes to ask, "We were shooting for a budget of $40,000 - but it looks like we won't have much more than $30,000. In a year, do you think this amount is feasible? Is it more expensive out there or less than anticipated?"
