Round-the-World Trip Statistics #01

10 Mar

g_around_the_world_2It’s been 162 days since I started my trip in Canada back in September 2014 and so far I have spent 10.000€. Check out this insight to see where I left my money🙂

A lot of people have asked me how much money I would spend on this trip. It was always hard to answer before I actually started, but now that I am on the road for nearly half a year and thanks to my neat little Excel sheet, I can now provide you with some information!

My total spendings so far add up to 10.130,13 €

This figure includes everything: food, accommodations, booked trips and all the rest like buying new shower gel or paying to get into a climbing gym. Whenever I spend money, I convert the local currency to Euros and add it to my Excel sheet. The biggest part of the above sum is my upcoming cruise to Antarctica in two weeks from now, so if you would remove that, it would come down to around 6.000 € for nearly half a year so far.

More interesting for you guys as fellow travelers yourself might be how much I actually spend on the food (including all sorts of drinks too) and accommodations in each country. The following stats will give you an insight on my spendings. Luckily, I was able to Couchsurf every single day in Canada, making the average spendings in North America look a bit low because it just reflects Mexico.

Hope you liked that information, I will continue to gather the data in my lovely Excel sheet, haha. (I’m soooo German, I know…)

    Hey Chris, I’m a silent follower since day 1 and want you to thank you for that information. This is Awesome!
    Helps me and my girlfriend a lot, as we plan a 45day Trip in central america (from cancun to san jose) this summer🙂

    If you find time, I would love to get some inside information, like great couchsurfing hosts you can recommend, places to eat good, cheap food (we love streetfood) or public transport.

    Also what you think would be the best way to get down to san jose in our (short) 45 days🙂 We already did 9 months of Asia/Australia/NZ and will be thankful for any advice, once we are on the road in central america.

    One more question: It seems like you already excluded couchsurfing nights for average accomodation costs, right?

    Excited to read about your antarctica trip🙂

    Cheers mate

    Great insight, not many people post there actual trip costs. Pretty interesting to see the cost differences between the countries.

    I really envy all the travel, I’m only going to get to spend 8 days in central america

    The average from accommodation is based on the actual nights outside of couchsurfing. Well it depends on what you want to see on the way down, the quickest way is to fly haha😀

    I dont really care too much about the food but street food in Central america was good and cheap in general until you hit Costa Rica. For couchsurfing you are better off to send out requests yourself so they can check your profile etc..

    Thanks for your comments!
