This gives me some nostalgia after my travels throughout 2010-2011. Although I didn't travel penniless, I did manage to only spend $5,000 in 7 months of adventures. I went throughout North America, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Turkey. I was having the time of my life! So this gives me an inclination of a South American adventure on a smaller budget in 2013...
