Vegas baby! £1k for flights and 5 nights at a casino on the Strip. £1k for being a degenerate gambler all week. In fact that's exactly what I'm doing in September anyway. Grinding the 1/2 NLHE tables and gawking at the waitresses.

That gives me £1,400 to spend on life there.
The average income for a working man is $200
So £500 should keep me very well housed and fed for a year.
Winner
er well not by UK standards!

Its true that the value for money there is excellent, but if you wanted to live there you'd have a difficult choice between the rural areas which have very poor facilities or the cities which are a lot more expensive and really not pleasant. Plus you'd learn the language?

Just sayin' :cool:

...where would you go? The £2000 would have to cover everything including flights, insurance, accommodation, food, shopping and entertainment. You could semi-cheat and say that you would earn some extra money while you were away.

I'm embarrassed to say I can't actually answer my own question yet, because I've got to think about it in-depth. However I do know that I would visit as many different continents and countries as I could.
Very sadly, £2000 won't allow you to visit that many continents :P Flights to most places outside of Europe normally start at about £500!
Also, I always feel like I don't want to rush in, see something, and move on, just so that I can say I've been to more countries. Instead I want to spend a while exploring one place, seeing much more of what it has to offer and getting a real feel for it (so it doesn't feel like you need to go back immediately cause you missed out on so much stuff the first time round). I'm going travelling soon and had this dilemna - for 10 weeks in South America, my friend wanted to visit about 5 countries but now we're only doing 3 as it allows us to have a better time in each and not be constantly on the move. I still think we could have done even 1 or 2 in that time Also, moving between places is often what takes up money. If you're happy settling-down and taking things slowly then you have enough time to know where's cheapest to stay and not have to spend much money every day, meaning you get longer out there.

That said, I'm someone who saves-up all my money to travel and I imagine that if I hadn't been as lucky as I have been (saved-up from my school job to go interrailing, on my gap year to go abroad, and during uni holidays to go away now) and I suddenly got a load of money then yeah, I'd probably decide to see as many places as possible if I didn't have the chance again! So really I'm being silly.

Now... if I did get £2000 for an amazing holiday, I think I might do what I wouldn't do with my own money (which I squeeze every last penny out of) - I might have a relaxing, luxurious holiday!! maybe a week's safari and a week's exotic island relaxation?

I mean that our interests, your and mine have something in common. But so as we don't know each other, you have reasons to afraid of me and you'd be confused if I have tried to describe you my interests. If you only knew how I got tired of "confusion" :bored: .
I'll try to ask in such a way, not to describe you everything in wain. Are you advanturous type of person? Do you like hiking, summer and tents?

Get the cheapest flight to New York, stay in the cheapest hostel, and just spend as much time as possible there revisiting all the places from my early childhood. Used to live in Spanish Harlem, literally grew up in the projects, yo!* The Jefferson Projects to be exact.

*Am definitely no longer cool enough to be able to use the word yo. :rolleyes:

I'm not sure. There's a whole range of countries I'd love to go and see, and I expect to get to them at some point, so for now, I'd probably scout out which has the cheaper flights and maybe visit a number of countries, live really on the cheap eating local food and such, and spend a while in each.
