Alrighty. So my boyfriend and I left Canada in April and worked in Ireland for roughly 3 1/2 months. Made some decent coin and decided to venture out into the rest of Europe. Now I'm generally a person who writes things down in my Daily Planner. Doc appointments, meetings, how much I spent on hair appointments, work hours ect... What I didn't realize until a month or so into the trip was how much I wrote down regarding our trip. Flight, bus and train times, where and when we stayed in hostels and how much, activities we did and how much they were... and so much more. Yes, I'm a bit OCD I think. So one day we decided to really keep track of things, add them up and see what the total came out to me!
All I can say is WOW!
So we departed Ireland on August 5, 2009. This is where the documentation began. A quick summary of our trip first.
In order we visited the following countries:
Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Italy, Vatican City, Netherlands, Luxmborg, France, Portugal, Spain, England, Wales,
During the 12 week adventure, these are some of our experiences:
Transportation hours by:
Bus: 73.25 hrs
Ferry: 49.25 hrs
We visited 55 cities within the 23 countries, staying in 36 different hostels.
All up Jason and I worked in Ireland and walked away with roughly 2000 Euros each and personally from my home bank, I withdrew approximently 1300 euros in the final 4 weeks The cost of our trip roughly was as follows:
Ground Transportation $: (includes reservations, buses, city metro) 843.74 euros p/p with an additional 515 euro p/p Euro Rail Global Pass, and 487.48 euro p/p for flights
Hostel $ 972.50 euro p/p
Tours$ (walking tours, museums, castles ect): 329.80 euros p/p
Grand Total $: 3148.
262.00 EUROS/week p/p, to an average of 37.50 Euros/day p/p
This does however not include food. We bought alot of groceries and didn't eat out so often but we did keep stats on the number of McDonald Burgers we ate... discusting I know.
Jason: 30 Cheese Burgers Me: 21 Chicken Burgers
Anyways, this is the stats. Next time I think we will do some more fun facts, how many kms we walk, people we meet and from which countries, and if anyone has any other ideas, that would be sweet!
