Not sure how long the op wants to be out and about.

Minus transportation, we (2) <$50/day average. So we stay away as long as possible. (Lodging and at least one meal free to $20/ night (private guest homes such as Servas.org). Seldom eat out... hosts prefer to cook.

We were able to do NZ, Au, UK, Romania, Spain, Philippines, Malaysia for ~free (1-3 months each)
Trade / vocational boarding schools needing teaching, remodel / IT, business planning, mechanic, fab or farming assistance. Free room and board (and available car / Ute,) for ~ 20 hrs / week assistance
$100 a day + airfares gets you away for over a year without too much stress. Asia is a breeze at that amount but Japan, China and the US just about impossible.

As you mention there are many options to earn some extra money and you can also save a lot in accommodation (major expense) by housesitting, staying with friends, volunteering for board and lodging, etc.

If you really want to do it you'll find a way ... if not there are plenty of excuses!

I once checked on around the world cruises and the cost was around 50 thousand. My daughter just took a cruise and she said there were hidden costs such as around $100 a day for tips that were mandatory. Side trips can be added costs too.

I would find a reputable travel agent.

I wouldn’t spend 1/3rd of all my assets on a rtw trip.

1/10th maybe but not 1/3rd.
