*edit: having read a blog about how cheap it is to live anywhere when you work, I will probably spend longer in each place. As a result, the country timings no longer mean how long I will spend in each place, but how much budget I have in each place. So if one months budget lasts 5 months, I can extend my stay in that place by 4 additional months.
This is pretty much the same as the previous travel plan, but with some minor changes. I have declined my offer to work at camp America
