    What a great breakdown — you guys did great at just $19 a day. I haven’t used Air BnB much, and it didn’t exist when I visited India, but you have me convinced. Staying with Mani sounds like it added a wonderful layer to your visit of friendship and insider tips. I may have to try it out when I head to South Africa later this month! 🙂

    That’s really good going in Mumbai where accommodation is crazy expensive compared to the rest of India. We found taxis good value when we were there 6 years ago because it was the only city in India where the drivers actually used the meter! Good on you for figuring out the buses though.

    I hope you give Trail Wallet a try. We used spreadsheets for three years and created the app primarily for ourselves. It’s so much easier and quicker now and we don’t have to worry about remembering what we spent when we get back to the laptop.

      Thanks Erin. Interesting to hear about the taxis. I was surprised to find out we didn’t have much trouble getting a taxi to use the meter. I wonder how Mumbai has changed over the past 6 years.

      I know what you mean with spreadsheets and the laptop – it’s been working so far but we’ll see after a few more months on the road. I’ll let you know if/when we pick up Trail Wallet 🙂
