So a couple of English folk are planning on doing the above route for 3 weeks from September 5th of this year. I know that there are lots of threads about similar routes but rather than read through these again and piece together bits of this thread/route and bits of that thread/route, please can all those road trip experts please give their opinions/recommendations/tips for the above route in reply to this so that we have it all in one place for reference.
By way of background, we are two 30 year olds - one boy, one girl, best friends, not a couple, like to party and have a good time, adventurous and really up for anything. In terms of accommodation, we want to stay in decent places but equally, we do not want to spend too much of our budget on lodging. We have a budget of about $6,400 per person so total $13,000 to include everything - flights, car hire, fuel, accommodation and spending money.
We thank you for your help and tips in advance.
