Our Stats After 365 Days on the road

Well, well, well. Here's a milestone. We have now been on the move for an entire year! On our 365th day we celebrated by walking around Krakow, Poland and buying anything we'd like for once instead of being frugal. We ended up feeling quite sick... But now, let's celebrate by taking a look at some statistics - including travel stats, spending stats and fun stats.

Remember that we're slow travellers, digital nomads and budget travellers when considering these stats. Please note that many illustrations have comments that are visible when hovering over them.

This first leg included no expensive flight tickets.

For Thailand, the flight tickets were very expensive although the country is otherwise cheap.

In Turkey we only CouchSurfed and had no accommodation expenses.

Hope this post was fun to read and maybe even useful! It's definitely fun for us to see it all illustrated like this. And we're ready for take two! If you want to read about our experience in each country, take a look at my personal journal, which I have written into chapters.

Our goal is to scoop you up and trow you right into one of our backpacks, bringing you along on our journey - so jump in. Stay with us for the second year of our humble quest to not be separated by laws and borders.
