Cruising Budget?

Long story short, the wife and I are tired of our jobs and might take a year or two off to sail. This is still 1-2 years in the future. As I make my very preliminary plans, the question I have trouble answering is how does one budget for cruising? Obviously there are the usual costs of owning a boat, but then there's a lot of costs related only to cruising/living aboard. Certainly costs can vary considerably by location. I'm wondering if anyone has any ballpark figures or rules of thumb to estimate a monthly cruising budget. I'd hate to get to Tonga and have to sell the boat and hitchike home because I didn't budget properly.

Thanks in advance,
